In recent years, both EDM and micro-EDM processes are being used extensively in the field of mould making, production of dies, cavities and complex 3D structures using difficult-to-cut tungsten carbide and its composites. The objective of this paper is to provide a state of the art in the field of EDM and micro-EDM of tungsten carbide and its composites. The review begins with a brief introduction on the EDM and micro-EDM processes. The research and developments in electrodischarge machining of tungsten carbide are grouped broadly into conventional EDM of tungsten carbide, micro-EDM of tungsten carbide and current research trends in EDM and micro-EDM of tungsten carbide. The problems and challenges in the area of conventional and micro-EDM of tungsten carbide and the importance of compound and hybrid machining processes are discussed. A summary of the future research directions based on the review is presented at the final section. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.
