This paper presents a new analytical modeling of ultrasonic vibration assisted drilling of bones for medical surgery operations. Due to the heterogeneous bone structure and the uneven bone surface, bone surgery cutting suffers from inaccuracy and difficulty in high precision bone surgery cutting. In this paper, a new method of ultrasonic vibration assisted drilling is proposed for bone surgery cutting. An analytical force modeling is presented for ultrasonic vibration assisted bone drilling. Experimental result validates the analytical modeling presented in the paper. Preliminary testing result also shows a significant improvement of drilling accuracy based on the proposed ultrasonic vibration assisted bone drilling. The proposed cutting techniques can be used in bone cutting surgery to increase the accuracy of born drilling position and reduce trauma damage of bone and surrounding soft tissues.
