ULTRASONIC Machining: Advantages of ultrasonic technology
Superimposing a longitudinal ultrasonic vibration on the rotating tool reduces the process forces by up to 50 percent during machining. Depending on the requirements, this could make it possible to increase feed rates, improve surface quality, minimise wear and tear of the tool and consequently achieve the production of high-precision materials. Microscopic cracks inside the material (also referred to as SSD or sub-surface damages) are reduced to a minimum, which significantly shortens the time required for subsequent polishing processes.
All of these properties make ultrasonic technology a highly productive and reliable method that is particularly well suited for the production of components in the optics and semiconductor industries. Whether you need 5-axis grinding of ceramics, drilling of glass, insertion of micro-holes in workpieces or a combination of all of these – the ULTRASONIC series offers the right machine for every application.
