ECDM is a preferred machining process for non-conductive materials like glass, ceramic etc. in micro-domain. In ECDM, the material is removed by thermal and chemical action. Micro hole of depth more than 1000 Ám has not been reported. Poor electrolyte replenishment in a machining gap between tool and workpiece is one of the main reason behind it. In this experimental investigation a new approach has been used to enhance electrolyte replenishment. In which an air jet has been assisted to ECDM. The air has been supplied in pulse mode with 1second on time and 1 second off time. Apart from replenishment, the air jet also removes debris from machining zone. The maximum depth of 2500 Ám was achieved by air jet assisted ECDM.
