Ultra-Precision Cutting of Brittle Materials with Ultrasonic Vibrated Diamond Tool
The influence of the ultrasonic vibrated diamond tool on the transition of ductile cutting to brittle cutting of the glasses is investigated by facing turning. It is understood that the critical depth of cut for the ductile cutting of the brittle materials is increased obviously by the ultrasonic vibrated diamond tool. The optical quality surface of the glasses is obtained, the surface roughness of which is less than0.03m. Finally, the relation between the roughness of machined surface and the cutting distance is studied experimentally.
