Six-Axis Control Character Line Finishing
Using Ultrasonic Vibrational Cutting Tool

Initiative of Precision Engineering at The Beginning of a Millennium,
The study deals with six-axis control character line finishing with
the use of vibrational cutting tool. Six-axis control machining with
non-rotational tools is a potential method to make a clear character
line shape. However, the machining produces not good results due to
the low cutting speed. In the study, the vibrational cutting is applied,
which is effective in solving the problem such as low cutting speed.
The cutter location data must be generated on the basis of the workpiece
CAD data, considering the characteristic of the vibrational tool.
The effectiveness of the devised method is experimentally confirmed.
