Technology Sharing Session on Quick Machining Vibration Solver for High Productivity and Sustainable Manufacturing

Date: 19 May 2010 - 19 May 2010

Venue: SIMTech Seminar Room, Valley Block, Level 1

The state-of-the-art machining strategy has been more organised and systematic rather than dependent on trial and error approach. Organised by SIMTech with the support of SPRING Singapore, this technology provides the innovative toolkit comprising dynamic tester and simulator to help reduce and remove trial and error costs.  The techniques used envision a 2-pronged development for your company:
(1) Quick vibration source identifier -  machining chattering identification; vibration test of tooling system, optimal use of a machining system; workpiece structure or fixture strength tests
(2) Machining chatter solutions -  chatter stability prediction/simulation based on physical performance; dimensional accuracy, form error reduction; stable cutting condition recommendations

- Improve machining surface quality
- Reduce tooling / spindle wear or workpiece damage (save maintenance cost and reduce machine down time)
- Enhance competency over productivity and machining know-how; and
- Equip support engineers with high value toolkit

About the Speaker
Dr Ko Jeong Hoon is an Associate Research Scientist at SIMTech. He began his engineering career in Germany at the Institute for Machine Tools (IFW), Stuttgart as Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow and developed plunge milling, multi-insert boring, drilling module in CutPro® with Professor Yusuf Altintas at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Canada after performing various industrial projects in South Korea. He did training/consulting for local and overseas companies in the area of machining vibration issues. His publication area focuses on dynamic modelling and tests of machining process in time and frequency domain, machining vibration, cutting condition optimisation, chatter avoidance, virtual prototyping and micro machining surface assessment. His achievements include US/Korea patents on feed rate scheduling as well as simulation tool / hammer tester development.
