Cutting high-performance materials with ultrasonically modulated cutting speed

DOI: 10.1117/12.2565757

The continuing trend towards lightweight construction and the associated machining rates of up to 95 % lead to an increased use of high-performance materials. The ever growing demands on the strength and quality of components and the associated use of materials which are hard to machine require the further development of new, economical machining techniques. In ultrasonic-assisted machining, an additional high-frequency vibration is superimposed on the conventional machining process. The vibration of the tool is usually excited axially or longitudinally to the workpiece, i.e. vertical to the cutting direction. An additional vibration overlay around the rotation axis (torsional) of the tool is also possible. This generates a vibration overlay in the cutting direction. The vibration initiation causes vibration amplitudes in the range of a few micrometers at the tool cutting edge. This leads in turn to a high-frequency change in the cutting speed or feed rate. Overall, an additional torsional vibration overlap can further reduce cutting forces, increase tool life and improve workpiece quality. In order for a grinding tool to generate a torsional vibration, a special tool was required that had to be designed by simulation. The formation of a torsional vibration was achieved by helical slots in the sonotrode. Depending on the angle of rotation and the length of the slots, a part of the axial vibration is converted into a torsional vibration by an axial excitation of the sonotrode. The aim in designing the slots was to achieve the highest possible vibration amplitude. Following the simulation, the slots were inserted into the tool in the corresponding optimum geometric position. Afterwards, the specially designed grinding tool was validated by machining the brittle-hard glass-ceramic material Zerodur. The first test results with the torsionally vibrating tool are presented in the following.

Zerspanung von Hochleistungswerkstoffen mit ultrasonisch modulierter Schnittgeschwindigkeit , vol115

Die steigenden Anforderungen an die Festigkeit und die Qualität von Bauteilen und die damit verbundene Verwendung hochfester Materialien erfordert die Weiterentwicklung neuer wirtschaftlicher Zerspanungstechniken. Durch eine werkzeugseitige Schwingungsüberlagerung können bei der Bearbeitung von schwer zerspanbaren Werkstoffen die Zerspankräfte und der Werkzeugverschleiß reduziert sowie die Oberflächenqualität verbessert werden.
