Electrical discharge grinding (EDG) is a hybrid process involving energy of sparking as well as mechanical grinding. The machining of thin and fragile material is very difficult for manufacturing industries and rapid demand of requirement could not be achieved. Electrical discharge machining is more acceptable machine tool for machining hard and brittle electrically conductive materials but its productivity is very low. In past decade, researchers have focused on EDG for machining these materials because there is no mechanical forces exerted on work piece during machining and it gives better performances than EDM due to the rotating speed of wheel. Therefore, the objective of this paper is to review the array of research works carried out on EDG process. It also focuses on recent developments for practical applications.
