Ultrasonic assisted turning (UAT) process has been developed to machine difficult to cut materials like alloys of nickel, titanium and composite materials. A thorough review of the advantages of low cutting forces and stress levels developed in UAT in comparison to a conventional turning (CT) process will be presented. Advantages of UAT will be highlighted to encourage a way forward to make it cost effective and environment friendly by reducing the carbon footprints of machining.
- Draw the benefits of self-lubricating cutting inserts during ultrasonic assisted turning process
- Understand the process mechanics of novel machining process i.e. ultrasonic assisted turning while machining hard to cut materials
- Discuss the reduction of carbon footprints to attain sustainable manufacturing
