ultrasonic impact grinding

Ultrasonic Impact GrindingSilfex is the industry leader in ultrasonic machining utilizing our years of proprietary expertise and large capacity of the most highly advanced ultrasonic tools.

Ultrasonic machining, also known as ultrasonic impact grinding, combines ultrasonically-induced vibrations with abrasive slurry to create accurate cavities of virtually any shape in hard, brittle materials. By using this stress free machining, non-thermal, non-chemical and non-electrical process, the metallurgical, chemical or physical properties of the material being used to create a component are not changed.

Ultrasonic capabilities:

  • In excess of 10,000 holes drilled simultaneously
  • Types and shapes
    • Round, square or custom shapes in most hard, brittle materials
    • Agressive aspect ratios
    • Capable of holes as small as 0.018 - in.
  • Materials: Silicon, silicon carbide, silicon nitride, glass, quartz, alumina, sapphire, graphite
  • Custom designs
