Abstract: Electric discharge machining (EDM) is a non conventional machining method to fabricate very tough and hard materials. Although EDM has played a vital role in machining industry but with advancement of technology, alternative advanced methods of machining have been evolved such as near dry EDM (ND-EDM) and powder mixed near dry EDM (PMND-EDM). These technologies have been proven more efficient than traditional EDM in terms of machining performance characteristics such as higher material removal rate (MRR), better surface finish (Ra) and low tool wear rate (TWR) with high tolerance quality products. In this study an approach has been made to draw experimental comparison between ND-EDM and PMND-EDM in terms of MRR, SR and TWR. The experimental result and analysis revealed that PMND-EDM was better machining method than ND-EDM as in the former technique, the M RR increased by 45.04 % while SR and TWR reduced by 45.33 % and 60.60% respectively.
