Experimental study on rotary ultrasonic machining of graphite/epoxy panel Conference Paper uri icon


  • Rotary ultrasonic machining (RUM) is introduced into drilling holes on graphite/epoxy (GREP) panels for the first time. The feasibility to machine GREP using RUM is investigated. Effects of RUM process parameters (ultrasonic vibration, federate, and spindle speed) on cutting force, MRR, and hole entrance/exit edge quality are also presented.
