Surface finish characterization in machining advanced ceramics by abrasive waterjet.
Date of Original Version
An experimental study was conducted to determine the surface finish characteristics of sintered aluminum oxides by an abrasive waterjet system. A beam force transducer designed for this experiment was used to quantify the surface finish and the effectiveness of the abrasive waterjet cutting process using three different grades of alumina. It was found that the workpiece reactive force can be used as a major process parameter for determining and controlling the quality of the machined surface of advanced ceramics.
