Manufacturing

The CAD/CAE/CAM part of the lab is equipped with a CNC 3axis milling machine. Some powerful computers provide the students various softwares for modeling of deformation processes as well as cad-cam simulations. A 30-ton hydraulic press provides the opportunity to exercise the physical modeling of metal-forming processes.

   

    Recent research activities:

  • Physical modeling of extrusion process

  • Determination of load and strain-stress in closed die forging using the Plasticine  Technique.

  • Improvement of vibrational characteristics of auto motive parts by using epoxy  fiberglass composites.

  • The influence of material properties on the shape and level of the forming limit   diagrams.
