  • Companies that do general machining jobs
  • Companies in the manufacturing industry that have metal machining as an in-house process, such as companies in the precision engineering, aerospace, automotive and electronics sectors

 


On completion of this unit, participants will have the knowledge and application skills required to improve machining productivity through dynamics analysis and simulation. These skills include:

  • Performing virtual machining simulation
  • Validating NC code before real machining
  • Reducing operation errors and enhancing safety using virtual CNC training
  • Identifying the causes of a machining chatter
  • Selecting a right cutting tool for minimisation of machining vibration
  • Analysing the dynamic characteristics of toolings using modal tests
  • Identifying characteristics of workpiece material that affect machining chatter
  • Analysing machining stability lobes to prevent machining chatter
  • Configuring the procedure for using a machining dynamics toolkit for optimising a machining process
  • Analysing machining units and generating stability lobes using a machining dynamic toolkit
  • Developing dynamics databases of machine tools and toolings for high productivity
  • Demonstrating how to improve material removal rate using dynamics analysis and stability lobe
  • Demonstrating the methodology for improving machining processes with high productivity using a machining dynamics toolkit
      


This course module aims at providing participants with practical and systematic training in machining dynamics analysis and simulation technologies that can be used to achieve high productivity with good surface quality, high geometrical accuracy, and high efficiency. The program scope covers virtual machining simulations, CNC verification, virtual training labs, fundamentals of machining dynamics, influences of tooling’s geometry on machining stability, dynamics analysis of machining units, dynamics characteristics of work material, generation of machining stability lobes, operation of machining dynamics toolkit, know-how to improve material removal rate, and how to improve machining productivity using dynamics toolkit. Real case studies and demonstrations will be performed at each participant’s shopfloor, showcasing productivity improvements on actual products in various machine tool structures.


Dr Ko Jeong Hoon is a scientist with SIMTech and an expert in machining dynamics and mechanics, tooling optimisation, machine tool vibration, feed rate scheduling, and ultrasonic vibration milling. Having achieved academic and industrial R&D successes across Singapore, Canada, Germany and South Korea, he has developed a quick milling and turning vibration solver and optimiser that can help engineers improve machining productivity. Dr Ko has trained engineers from more than twenty companies on the application of machining dynamics to improve machining productivity.
