Abstract

Bone cutting experiments were conducted on a cadaver using a newly developed machine tool. The effectiveness of the system was evaluated by comparing the planned shape for the mating surface between the femur and an artificial joint with the cutting result. It is desirable to know the machining phenomena and characteristics at the microscale because the material and the tissue structure are anisotropic in both cortical and cancellous bones. In the paper, the influence of the material characteristics on machining is discussed for cortical bone. Pig cortical bone was used in the experiment for visualizing 2-dimensional micro-cutting.
