Several industries developed their requirement for difficult to machine materials due to their special properties, however, machining of difficult to cut material poses immense challenge due to higher cutting force and sever tool wear involved. Laser machining has demonstrated itself as one of the potential technology to serve the machining of difficult to cut materials. This review paper presents a critical study of laser beam as well as assisted machining for difficult to cut materials. In addition, principle of laser, type of laser machining, MRR, surface roughness are also discussed in this study.
