Investigation on Machining Characteristics for Tangential Ultrasonic Vibration Assisted Grinding


Article Preview

A critical speed formula was given based on the analysis of kinematic characteristics during tangential ultrasonic vibration assisted grinding (TUAG) process. By the formula, the machining parameters can be correctly set to insure the separate characteristics of TUAG process. The grinding force can be decreased and the machining surface quality can be improved during TUAG process with separability. Grinding experiments were conducted, and the experiment results are in good agreement with theory analysis results.
