Nickel-based alloys has important application value in modern industrial field, but there are a lot of problems that are difficult to solve in traditional processing, and it is a typical difficult-to-process material. In order to improve the machinability of nickel-based alloys, scholars try to use a variety of non-traditional processing methods to explore and study the processing of nickel-based alloys. In these studies, ultrasonic vibration assisted processing technology and minimum quantity lubrication (MQL) processing technology can achieve remarkable results. The intermittent separation cutting characteristics of ultrasonic vibration assisted processing technology can improve the processing quality by changing the tool path, while minimum quantity lubrication processing technology can improve the lubrication effect of cutting, combining ultrasonic vibration assisted MQL processing leverages the benefits of both methods, resulting in improved machinability and expanded application of nickel-based alloys. Summarize the current research status on the machining mechanism of nickel-based alloys assisted by ultrasonic vibration and micro lubrication, and anticipate its developmental trends. This provides a reference for future research on the efficient machining mechanisms and practical applications of nickel-based alloys.
