Ultrasonically Assisted Machining of Titanium Alloys
In this chapter we discuss the nuances of a non-conventional machining technique known as ultrasonically assisted machining, which has been used to demonstrate tractable benefits in the machining of titanium alloys. We also demonstrate how further improvements may be achieved by combining this machining technique with the well known advantages of hot machining in metals and alloys.
