Investigations on Edge Chipping in Rotary Ultrasonic Machining Using Finite Element Analysis
This paper reports two investigations on the edge chipping in rotary ultrasonic machining using finite element analysis (FEA). The first FEA investigation establishes a relationship between edge chipping thickness and cutting force. The second FEA investigation is to understand the effects of three parameters (cutting depth, support length, and pre-tightening load) on edge chipping thickness. The investigation results showed that the edge chipping thickness could be reduced by increasing support length and decreasing cutting force.
