Conventional methods of grinding tend to be less efficient and less accurate for circumferential surfaces of smaller inner diameter. To make such grinding highly accurate and highly efficient, we have developed an Ultrasonically-Assisted Grinding Unit (UAG-Unit) by providing ultrasonic assistance to conventional internal grinding. In addition, we have also developed an Ultrasonic and Electrolytic Grinding System (UEG-System), which incorporates the effects of both ultrasonic vibrations and electrolytic actions into the conventional grinding of parts with small internal diameters and high aspect ratios.
