Abstract: Presently manufacturing industries are facing challenges from difficult-to-machine materials viz. Superalloys, ceramics and composites which require high precision and surface quality thereby increase machining cost. Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) is a non-traditional machining process that has become a well-established machining option in manufacturing industries throughout the world. The analysis of surface characteristics like surface roughness, microcracks of workpieces shows excellent improvement in machined surface. Carbon nanotubes are generally of two types, single-walled varieties (SWNTs), which have a single cylindrical wall and multi-walled varieties (MWNTs) which have cylinders within cylinders. Carbon nanotubes are one of the most commonly mentioned building blocks of nanotechnology. With one hundred times the tensile strength of steel, thermal conductivity better than all but the purest diamond, and electrical conductivity similar to copper, but with the ability to carry much higher currents, they seem to be a wonder material.
