Sustainable High Efficiency Machining - Cryogenic Machining

Grants and Contracts Details


The scope of this project is to develop and demonstrate advanced sustainable high efficiency machining technologies to achieve at least 3X material removal rate improvement for machining lightweight metals. A systems engineering approach will be used to mature and integrate key machining technology components to achieve the much higher removal rates. These components include cryogenic machining, ultrasonic machining, advanced NC programming, process dynamics modeling, physics-based machining process optimization, and model-based process monitoring, which have all been successful in isolation in limited laboratory and production environments.
