In the contribution we present the utilization of criterion C for the evaluation of topography of metallic materials surfaces generated by the abrasive waterjet. The criterion C provides a realistic picture of the proportion of waviness (low-frequency irregularities) to the total number of surface irregularities. The critical value of parameter Cc = 0.66 was determined experimentally for metallic m (…)

Keywords: hard machined materials | technical ceramics | roughness | ultrasonic spindle | ultrasound system | high power ultrasound

The paper deals with qualitative changes of machining of holes in ceramic materials applying by finishing conventional grinding and high power grinding. Measured and determined values of surface roughness of machining material definitely indicated the advantages of high power ultrasound application. Ultrasound grinding is the technological method of grinding useful for hard machinable materials.

Keywords: Requirements | Values | Behaviour | Properties | Characteristics | Attributes | Technical Product

Any technical product – technical system (TS) and its life cycle processes need to meet many requirements. These are not only requirements concerning the TS operation functions, their parameters and connection interfaces, but also high product safety and health protection, good appearance, easy manufacture, transport, maintenance and liquidation, low price, short delivery time, and many others. The (…)
