Machine tool performance and utilization is often limited by machining process induced vibrations. Given that machine tools play a vital role in the development of nations, it is necessary for fast industrializing nations as ours to push the barriers limiting machine tool performance by relying on technology driven solutions. This workshop is geared towards introducing those technologies that make possible higher utilization of machine tools.
The workshop will introduce the essential theory to model machining processes, machine tool dynamics and models to characterize process-machine interactions to predict and avoid unstable chatter vibrations. Hands-on experimental testing of machine dynamics, cutting force characterization and chatter detection and avoidance will enable the participants to improve their understanding of this highly technical and non-intuitive field.
Engineering faculty, students, researchers in R&D labs along with personnel working in machine tool/cutting tool developer and user industries are the target audience. Learnings from this workshop will help faculty to motivate students to address challenges faced by the manufacturing enterprise. Learnings will also motivate practical solutions for some industrial problems.
