The material removal process in case of hybrid electrochemical processes take place either through electro-chemical dissolution (ECD) or chemical dissolution (CD). The material removal rate is enhanced either by the use of thermal assistance or action of mechanical machining. The combination also results in the improved quality of surface. The present chapter discusses the various hybrid electrochemical processes.
