Abstract: This paper is focused on reviewing previously carried out work and written in literature. Non- conventional abrasive water jet technology is being utilized to machine variety of metals, their respective alloys and nonmetals. Mainly concentrated on Titanium alloys and difficulty in its machining. Numerous variables associated with the technology and their consequence on response variable were analyzed and summarized in this review. Paper conclude numerous gaps in research along with future scope.
