Ultrasonic Assisted Machining Centre

These machines are a dual-function Vertical Machining Centre combined with rotary ultrasonic assisted machining of advanced materials.  Typical applications include micro-hole drilling and machining of glass, sapphire, silicon carbide, quartz, ceramic, hardened steel, high nickel alloys, and non-ferrous materials.

Any material that is softer than the cutting tool can be ultrasonic assisted.  Rotary ultrasonic machining combines high speed spindle rotation with high frequency vertical vibration of the cutting tool.  The diamond tool impacts the material with high contact speed, reducing cutting force and producing ultra-fine finishes while improving cutting efficiency 3 – 5 times faster than conventional machining.

FEATURED Ultrasonic Assisted Machining Centre - TONGTAI VU-5

Excellent ultrasonic control technology, able to automatically complete frequency scanning and power settings efficiently

Tool vibrates periodically (15~45 kHz), reduces cutting resistance and enhance surface quality

24,000RPM high speed spindle, supports standard BBT-30 tools

Ultrasonic assisted machining can reduce cutting resistance and process temperature rising, to extend the tool’s lifetime

Ultrasonic assisted machining can reduce the roughness from processed surface, to reduce the time for polishing

Can reduce the burr existing after processed hard and brittle material

Can do micro-hole processing for hard and brittle material
