The controlled application of low-frequency modulation to machining — Modulation Assisted Machining (MAM) — effects discrete chip formation and disrupts the severe contact condition at the tool-chip interface. The role of modulation in reducing the specific energy of machining with ductile alloys is demonstrated using direct force measurements. The observed changes in energy dissipation are analyzed and explained, based on the mechanics of chip formation.
