Economical grinding, milling and drilling of tough materials
- June 5, 2016
DMG MORI's Ultrasonic technology enables manufacturers to machine complex workpiece geometries in demanding high tech materials economically, claims the company.
The kinematic overlapping of the tool rotation with an additional oscillation effects a reduction of the process forces by up to 40 % in comparison to conventional machining. Depending on the workpiece requirements, this allows higher feed and infeed, longer tool life or significantly better surface finishes of up to Ra smaller than 0.1 µm. Based on a consequent development of the technology according to the markets requirements, the 2nd generation machine now is able to cover ultrasonic-assisted milling of hard to machine metal alloys or fibre reinforced materials with defined cutting edge.
