K9 glass has excellent optical performance due to its bubble-free structure and low inclusions. It has been used in applications of optics, electronics, thermodynamics, fluidics, etc. K9 glass is a difficult-to-machine material due to its mechanical properties, such as high hardness, high strength, and low fracture toughness. Rotary ultrasonic machining (RUM) is a nontraditional and cost-effective machining method for hard and brittle materials. RUM is a hybrid process that combines the material removal mechanisms of diamond abrasive grinding and ultrasonic machining. Intermittent RUM is a newly introduced ultrasonic machining process, which uses a slotted cutting tool instead of a common metal bonded diamond cutting tool as used in continuous RUM. Intermittent RUM can machine K9 glass with a lower cutting force than that of continuous RUM. View this paper
