Metal working industry is bracing for new challenges and new technologies in view of increasing competition vis-a-vis performance, quality, efficiency and environmental sustainability. There are difficult parts, intricate parts and difficult materials to be managed through metal working equipment and expertise from new technology horizons Viz. additive manufacturing, increasing use of robots, micro machining and super finishing, Industry 4.0 and so on.

With a view to address the evolving trends in machining technologies, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing the "International Seminar on Machining Technologies" on 23 January 2019, in conjunction with IMTEX2019 exhibition, in Bangalore.

Experts from Austria, Germany, Japan, Singapore, Switzerland, UK, USA, as well as from India will facilitate sessions at this International Seminar. Spread over 3 concurrent sessions and 5 technology tracks, this seminar will cover key technology areas and their application related to metal cutting.

This International seminar will provide both manufacturers and users of machine tools with latest metal-cutting solutions that would enhance productivity, improve quality and finish of machined components, in addition to reducing costs. The Seminar will dwell extensively on latest developments and highlight a range of value added machining solutions.

Seminar Highlights

  • "Transformative Technologies: The Impact to machining, Services and Business Models"

    This presentation will give an overview of expected changes to come in machining, services and even business models, based on what is happening in the global scenario and what could happen in India too with advent of Transformative Technologies like IIOT, Data Automation, Digitalization and Smart Connectivity.

  • Connected Solution for Digital Machining

    Utilization of cutter data base in optimizing machining, for getting right quality in the first shot, through continual knowledge based process design refinements, based on Smart Communication during machining process.

  • Overcoming challenges in difficult - to - machine materials

    Machines are becoming Industry 4.0 compatible with in built sensors, features and working algorithms for higher productivity and performance with difficult - to - machine materials.

  • Grinding process optimization

    Machine features which help optimize Grinding operation, which is often the finishing operation, and controls the final quality apart from making the process more user friendly.

  • Dynamic Roughing with Multi Axis Machines

    Several strategies to implement multi axis adaptive roughing get evaluated, to optimize safe machining with large 5 axis CNC machines with faster, efficient and user friendly CAM Software.

  • Improving dynamic efficiency and precision for large CNC Machines

    Use of Control features and parameters to achieve vibration and distortion free cutting, with machines having higher acceleration / deceleration, overhang and moving mass.

  • Control of vibrations during machining

    Theory and experimental results on quality with use of active and passive damping of cutter, work holding and machine structure.

  • Countering thermal behavior of machines

    Presentation of the pioneering work done in determining the thermal behavior of machines and the possibilities of countering the thermal distortion.

  • Adaptive automation

    Some examples on how Robots can pick and place parts kept in random orientation, through augmented vision system and adaptive path.

  • Machine Tools with Composite structures for improved dynamic response

    Lighter machine structures with use of Composites to achieve ultra low inertia and high dynamic response, for high velocity machines of the future.

  • Designing for Additive Manufacturing

    Special Techniques of designing for Additive manufacturing to maximize its benefit. The benefits of Additive Manufacturing getting magnified ifthe parts / assemblies are specifically designed for it, as against use of Additive manufacturing as a substitute for conventional process.

  • Application of Additive Manufacturing in Tool Engineering

    Example of use of Additive manufacturing for making cutting tools with special features, which are difficult to make otherwise, with comparable performance of manufacturing.

  • Robotic automation solutions for fettling and de-flashing

    Typical case studies of the use of Robots for addressing the hazardous and bottleneck Foundry process of fettling, in addition to de-flashing of Aluminium Die Cast items.

  • Machining difficult jobs by Ceramic Tools

    Case studies showing relative advantages for machining difficult parts like Blisk, Aero Engine Parts, Turbine Disk, Broach Milling with material like Inconel, Titanium, High Temperature Alloys etc., with use of Ceramic Tools.
