This set of Advanced Machining Processes Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on “USM – Machining System”.

1. The machining system of USM contains which of the following components?
a) Magnetostrictor
b) Concentrator
c) Tools and slurry
d) All of the mentioned

Explanation: In machining system of USM, the above-mentioned components have to be present.

2. In Ultrasonic Machining, Magnetostrictor is energized at ultrasonic frequency.
a) True
b) False

Explanation: To oscillate, magnetostrictor must be energized to the ultrasonic frequency in USM.

3. Of the following scientists, who discovered magnetostrictor effect?
a) Balamuth
b) Steve O Flawer
c) Joule
d) Turing

Explanation: This effect was discovered by Joule in 1874 at Manchester.

4. In Ultrasonic Machining, magnetostrictor converts magnetic energy into which type of energy?
a) Mechanical energy
b) Electrical energy
c) Thermal energy
d) None of the mentioned

Explanation: Oscillation of magnetostrictor takes place by converting magnetic energy to mechanical energy.

b) 10 – 40 µm
c) 40 – 50 µm
d) 50 – 100 µm

Explanation: Relatively larger amplitudes are obtained when amplifier is used.

7. In USM, tool tips must have low resistance and fatigue strength.
a) True
b) False

Explanation: In USM, tool tips should must have high wear resistance and fatigue strength.
