Materials in Machining
The meeting point for:
Industially beneficial R&D; ”Research on demand”.
Research scope: The properties of the work piece material, and their link to the wear of the cutting tool and to the chip formation.
The industrial top level competence in metal cutting research, represented by steel manufacturers, tool makers and the manufacturing industry.
Dynamic, responsive and efficient R&D, with experienced personnel.
Member programme projects, open or confidential.
Contract work R&D projects, fully confidential.
A network where metal cutting research is integrated with metallography, alloy design and processes in steel making, fatigue and mechanical strength of manufactured components, FEM-modelling of material flow, NDT-methods, among others…
Semestrial meetings, networking and workshops.
- Entrance to international networks and R&D projects funded by EU.
