Rotary Ultrasonic Machining of Advanced Ceramics
Rotary ultrasonic machining (RUM) is one of the cost-effective machining methods for advanced ceramics, which is a hybrid machining process that combines the material removal mechanisms of diamond grinding and ultrasonic machining (USM). This paper presents an overview of the investigations on RUM of advanced ceramics. The issues about the material removal mechanisms, process modeling, material removal rate, and tool wear in RUM are reviewed. Directions of future research on RUM are also presented.
