Abstract:Dental ceramics are used for a number of aesthetic and prostheses applications due to their high compressive strength, superior wear resistance and natural aesthetical appearance. However, their cost‐effective machining still remains a challenge. This paper reports an experimental study on machining of one type of dental ceramics (macor) with rotary ultrasonic machining (RUM). Effects of process parameters (spindle speed, feed rate and ultrasonic vibration power) on the cutting force, surface roughness, and chipping size are obtained.

- International Journal of Machining and Machinabilty of Materials is a refereed international publication in the field of machining and machinability of materials. Machining science and technology is an important subject with application in several industries. Parts manufactured by other processes often require further operations before the product is ready for application. Machining is the broad term used to describe removal of material from a workpiece, and covers chip formation operations - turning, milling, drilling and grinding, for example. Machining processes can be applied to work metallic and non metallic materials such as polymers, wood, ceramics, composites and special materials. Today, in modern manufacturing engineering, there has been strong renewed interest in high efficiency machining.
