Modulation-Assisted Machining: A New Paradigm in Material Removal Processes

Abstract:

Article Preview

Modulation Assisted Machining (MAM), based on controlled superimposition of low-frequency modulation to conventional machining, effects discrete chip formation and disrupts the severe contact condition at the tool-chip interface. The underlying theory of discrete chip formation and its implications are briefly described and illustrated. Benefits such as improved chip management and lubrication, reduction of tool wear, enhanced material removal, particulate manufacturing and surface texturing are highlighted using case studies. MAM represents a new paradigm for machining in that it deliberately employs ‘good vibrations’ to enhance machining performance and capability.
