Aluminum Metal Matrix Composites (AMMCs) are new generation engineering materials that possess superior physical and mechanical properties compared to non-reinforced alloys. This makes them attractive for wider range of applications in automotive, aerospace and defense industries. The reinforcements in AMMCs are very hard and abrasive in nature. Thus, they pose a limitation to their economic conventional machining. Production of complex shapes in such materials by traditional methods is also difficult. In view of high tool wear and high cost of tooling with conventional machining, unconventional material removal processes offers an attractive alternative. Many unconventional machining processes, have found widespread applications in industry. The machining characterization of AMMCs material is necessary for high quality-cost effective product development. This paper presents a review of Non Conventional machining process and year wise research work done on AMMCs. The paper also discusses the future trend of research work in the
