Paper Title:
Efficient Machining of Artificial Hip Joint Components
  Abstract

This paper investigates the effect of tool and workpiece motions on the machining efficiency in the fabrication of hip joint prosthesis. The finite element method was used to characterize the three-dimensional motion of the system, using the uniformity or even distribution of a cutting tool tip trajectory as an efficiency indicator. It was found that a proper combination of the rotational speeds of a cutting tool and a workpiece can improve significantly the efficiency of the machining operation.
