The Study of Resonant Frequency of Horn and Circular Tool of Ultrasonic Milling System


Article Preview

Based on the traditional analytic method and four-end network method, a tapered transition-type ultrasonic horn is designed and analyzed by ANSYS Workbench software. The composite horn avoids the limitations of single-horn and the resonant frequency of the horn is good to meet the design requirement. Through the ANSYS Workbench , the circular tool used for cutting the Nomex honeycomb core materials is analyzed. The test results shows that the resonant frequency of the circular tool is too small to meet the design requirement when the tool have a good modes. But after the optimize design by the Six Sigma in ANSYS Workbench, the resonant frequency of the tool is good for meeting the demands of the design and production and processing.
