A machine tool for rotary ultrasonic machining
(RUM) was applied in this experiment.

However, new ultrasonic machining
systems for composites from DMG Mori target the transmission of ultrasonic vibration into the longitudinal axis of the tool, thereby significantly reducing torsional movement, lengthening tool life and optimising chip removal.
Conventional ultrasonic machining
(USM) uses an abrasive slurry and a vibrating tool (typically 10-15 [micro]m in amplitude and 15-30 kHZ in frequency).
Nearly 200 selected and peer-reviewed papers from the latest sitting consider such areas as abrasive jet machining, advanced cutting technology, brittle material machining, chemical mechanical polishing and silicon wafer processing, coolants and cooling, ultrasonic machining
and laser machining, eco-machining, glass molding, grinding wheel and abrasive grain technologies, high-speed and high-efficiency machining, in-process measurement and monitoring, metrology, machine tools and systems, tooling processing, micro-machining and nano-machining, surface integrity and materials characterization, tribology in manufacturing, and other topics.
Two essays are more historical (discussions of Postclassic Mayan pottery and the use of ceramic pots in old worship settings), and are presented along with scientific studies, of the preparation and characterization of optical fluoride and oxysulfide ceramics and rotary ultrasonic machining
, for example.
* A more comprehensive library of motion and process control characteristics, letting the advanced CNC accomplish EDM, waterjet, laser, and ultrasonic machining

processes for drilling, cutting and forming.
Instruments found a new way to cut these materials and significantly reduce machining times when it purchased a DMS35 ultrasonic machining
center from DMG.
But one process that should be taken into account, especially when the materials that need to be machined are comparatively brittle (and consequently likely to crack when using the tried-and true harder material on softer) is using sound--as in ultrasonic machining
