Abstract

Rotary ultrasonic machining (RUM) has been used to machine various difficult-to-machine materials. Investigations have been reported regarding effects of input variables on several output variables (including cutting force, torque, surface roughness, edge chipping, material removal rate, and tool wear) in RUM. However, there is no report on any study on cutting temperature in RUM. This paper presents an experimental study on cutting temperature in RUM using titanium as workpiece material. Results show that cutting temperature with ultrasonic vibration was lower than that without ultrasonic vibration. Higher feedrate and lower coolant flow rate caused higher cutting temperature.
