Benchmark: Machining Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs)
Which surface qualities and processing times are achievable when combining ultrasonic-assisted milling and grinding?
Challenge and Motivation
- Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) are increasingly used within high temperature sections of turbo machines.
- Machining of SiC/SiC is time- and cost-intensive.
- Combining machining processes could improve surface quality and reduce processing time.
- Evaluation of technologic and economic feasibility when combining Ultrasonic-assisted (UA) milling and grinding to improve the CMC machining performance.
