The completion of machining in one setting leads to high accuracy and
quality. Since ordinary machining is not capable of fabricating sharp
corners, electrical discharge machining (EDM) is used. However,
this requires a highly skilled machinist to set up the workpiece to
maintain the accuracy of the product since two or more set-ups are
involved in this process. In this study, a new manufacturing method for
the fabrication of sharp corners is examined experimentally.
Six-axis controlled cutting using bore byte tool with the application of
ultrasonic vibration has been applied in this method. Experimental
results have shown the applicability of this method in the fabrication
of sharp corners.
