Abstract: Abrasive Water Jet Machining (AWJM) is an unconventional material processing technique that is widely used in industries now. In various product applications, high strength with lower weight is desirable nowadays. Aluminium Matrix Composites (AMCs) are having high strength to weight ratio, better tribological properties and good corrosion resistance and hence their demand increases now days. In present review, study the effect of various AWJM process parameters, like, jet pressure, transverse speed and stand of distance nozzle diameter and abrasive grain size on kerf width, kerf angle and surface roughness presented.
