Coordinate Measurements of Geometrically Complex Ceramic Parts


Article Preview

The article presents the results of numerical and experimental investigations concerning contact coordinate measurements of complex ceramic parts made of Al2O3 and ZrO2 based ceramic materials in different states. The investigated parts were manufactured by using two machining processes: ultrasonic assisted grinding and conventional grinding. The results of investigations may be used in order to improve the manufacturing process of geometrically complex ceramic parts.
