Nonconventional Technologies - present and future
Practically, nonconventional technologies have been used in enterprises for at least 50 years. At the beginning and a good time after, specialized literature considered as Nonconventional Technologies those technologies that used as a “tool” the energies concentrated under different forms such as: electrical discharges in impulse, ultrasounds, temperature which can create an electron, ion, laser etc. beam.
With all these technologies material processing is done by removing from the surface of the object to be processed a quantity of matter under the form of small particles, yet in a large number in the time unit, phenomenon characteristic to erosion, thus the name of the technologies: “processing technologies through erosion”.
