Abstract: Ultrasonic-vibration-assisted grinding (UVAG), a hybrid machining process combining material removal mechanisms of diamond grinding and ultrasonic machining, has been used to machine various hard-to-machine materials. Large amount of research work on UVAG has been carried out since it is invented. However there are few review papers to cover the current literature on UVAG. The emphasis of this literature review is the experimental investigations of the drilling process with ultrasonic vibration using a core drill with metal-bonded diamond abrasives. Experimental results are summarised and compared. The inconsistent results and their reasons are discussed. Furthermore, directions of future research on UVAG are also presented.
