The need for non-conventional machining begins with the need for alternative energy sources. Non-conventional machining requires the use of alternative energy sources including thermal energy or solar energy.
The difference between conventional and non conventional energy resources is that conventional energy resources are much more common. An example of a conventional energy resource would be oil, a non conventional energy resource would be solar power.
Non convetional sources are not popular because they are not conventional sources which are popular...
IT IS NEcssary to create non conventional sources because they help to
Conventional is average, standard, expected, ordinary ideas, nothing anyone has not heard of. While Non conventional is thinking outside the box, new ideas, etc.
conventional machining is that in which the control of removal of material is either by automatic machines or by man handled.while cnc machinig is that in which control of machining process is done by computes or through programming.
Non conventional Machining is a recent development in machining techniques. It is based on unconventional machining techniques using Laser beam, Electron beam, Electric arc etc. Conventional machining involves the direct contact of tool and work -piece, whereas unconventional machining does not require the direct contact of tool and wor piece. Conventional machining has many disadvantages like tool wear which are not present in Non-conventional machining. Examples : Electric arc machining, Laser cutting , electro discharge machining, plasma cutting etc Advantages of Non-conventional machining: 1) High accuracy and surface finish 2) no direct contact of tool and workpiece, so there is less/no wear 3) tool life is more 4 ) quieter operation Disadvantages of non-conventional machining: 1) high cost 2) complex set-up 3) skilled operator required
In ordinary machining we use harder tool to work on workpiece , this limitation is overcome by unconventional machining. unconventional machining is directly using some sort of indirect energy for machining. Example : sparks, lasers, heat , chemicals etc.. applied in EDM ,laser cutting machines...etc

Wire EDM uses a thin wire to remove surrounding material, where conventional EDM uses a shaped electrode to remove material.
The two major categories of machining are "conventional maching" and "CNC (computer numerical control) machining." The actual metal cutting process is the same. The difference is in how the tool path is controlled as it cuts the workpiece. "Conventional machining" (also known as "manual machining") is generally regarded as using manually controlled machines, particularly lathes, mills and drill presses. The tool moves around the work by mechanical controls that are manually controlled. "CNC machining" is generally regarded as using lathes and mills (and some other machine types) in which all tool and workpiece motion is controlled by a computer.
Machining process is a broad term that refers to the cutting processes, abrasive processes and the non-traditional machining processes.
Definition of conventional and non conventional energy
No you csn't machine the material which are non conductive by using edm.But there is a drived machining process which is used for machining non-conducting material(like ceramics, brittle materials) is ECDM(Electro Chemical Discharge Machining).
Whether conventional or non-conventional is better is a matter of opinion and circumstance. Different people have different answers.
The meaning of the word non-conventional is: not established by accepted usage or general agreement. In layman's terms, non-conventional means non-traditional.
