In past few years the combination of different conventional machining processes to a hybrid manufacturing process has become an innovative approach for the machining of high performance materials. The aim in combining manufacturing processes is an increase in productivity, to broaden the limits of its application and an improvement of the product quality. In this connection a conventional manufacturing process is supported by an additional mechanical, thermal or chemical mechanism. This supporting mechanism either generates an independent contribution to the work results or it favourably alters ...
