With a greater drive towards a Green Economy and the importance of sustainability, remanufacturing is becoming a larger and larger industry. The rise in the Remanufacturing industry brings new challenges to machining with technologies helping to deal with the high mix low volume and almost hyper-personalisation requirements. Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining has been well established and utilised in different industrial sectors such as aerospace, marine, oil & gas, automotive, MedTech, precision engineering (PE), moulds and dies. Smart machining techniques, which can be applied to both Remanufacturing and standard components, have tremendous potential and are becoming one of a new generation of high-value precision manufacturing technologies in line with the advance of Industry 4.0 concepts.
To enter the remanufacturing market or remain competitive and profitable, plants and machines will have to be smarter: better connected, more efficient, more flexible, and be safer.
This course aims to enhance the knowledge and skills of the participant in the fundamentals and
state-of-the-art on the latest developments in smart machining technology through lectures and lab demonstrations. Remanufacturing will be introduced as a developing industry and case studies will be discussed throughout the course to enhance the participants’ appreciation of the different industrial applications. The knowledge gained during this course benefits both the participants who stand to upgrade their individual expertise and their companies with the opportunity to improve their productivity and competitiveness.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to gain the following knowledge and skills:
Cycles of the circular economy • Remanufacturing lifecycle • Flow of the remanufacturing process
• Benefits of remanufacturing • Machined surface characteristics and defects • Unit events • Mechanisms and their effect of surface integrity • Tool wear mechanisms • Tool condition sensing • Signal acquisition and signal processing • Machine learning techniques • Feature extraction • Classification versus regression
• Degrees of adaptive machining • Probing on CNC machines • Machine-to-machine communication
• Expression-based CAD modelling • Automation of the adaptive machining process • Closed-loop system architecture • Process capability index and process control charts
Our webinar was held on 6 September 2021 to offer an introduction to this course. You can also watch our webinar's video recording at our YouTube webpage.
The programme employs the Learn-Practise-Implement™ (LPI™) pedagogy, where fundamental knowledge and principles taught will be reinforced with hands-on practices.
