Experimental Research on the Surface Roughness Characteristics in Ultrasonic Vibration Lapped Surface of Titanium Alloy
Based on the machining principle of ultrasonic vibration lapping, the surface roughness characteristics of plastic difficult-to-machine titanium alloys are studied through experiments using self-developed ultrasonic vibration lapping device. And the effects of workpiece speed, ultrasonic amplitude and grain size on surface roughness were researched by using single-factor testing way. The research results show that surface roughness is decreased to a certain extent for the assistance of ultrasonic vibration. The corresponding results provide certain reference value for the optimization of processing parameter in ultrasonic vibration lapping.
