Abstract

Micro machining of bone is essential for minimally invasive surgeries and for the preparation of bone surfaces for implants. Micro rotary ultrasonic machining (MRUM) is a recently developed micromachining technique for machining hard and brittle materials with high fracture toughness. In this feasibility study, MRUM was used to drill holes in cortical bovine rib. The effects of machining parameters were studied on the material removal rate (MRR) of the bone and quality of the drilled surface. MRR was found to increase with increase in spindle speed and grit size.
