Open Lab in Machining Technology

Date: 03 Dec 2008 - 03 Dec 2008

Venue: SIMTech Valley Block, Level 2, 71 Nanyang Drive, Singapore 638075

Introduction
Process Technology development is key to support and grow the local PE industry. The PE COI is organising an Open Lab event together with the Machining Technology Group in SIMTech to showcase some of its R&D projects as well as core competencies in machining. 

Objectives
The objectives of this event are:

· Allow industry to better understand the machining technologies being
  developed at SIMTech

· Provide a platform for discussion with engineers and researchers on machining
  technologies

· Receive input and suggestions from the PE industry on technologies need be
  developed

· Foster closer relationship with the PE industry

SIMTech researchers will showcase their projects in the form of posters next to the machines used for their projects. Industry visitors are welcome to freely mingle and discuss with SIMTech researchers, find out details of the purposes and objectives of the projects, give comments and suggestion and even help guide the researchers to identify industrially relevant technologies for development. 

Here are the projects being shown:
· Machining dynamics
· Virtual CNC machining
· Micro machining
· Ultra-precision machining of optical surfaces
· Loose abrasive processes: cost effective finishing for high value parts
· Cutting tool development: PCD and Carbide
· Laser cleaning of aerospace components
· Laser machining of composite / surface texturing
· Laser drilling of ceramic
· Laser dicing of silicon wafer
· Modelling laser dicing
· Laser machining of tools

The atmosphere will be informal with no time schedule on any specific showcase. Come anytime between 2pm and 6 pm on 3 December 2008.

Who Should Attend
Engineering managers, engineers, executives and technologists from the precision engineering, aerospace, automotive, photonics, optics, bio-technology, manufacturing and machining clusters; researchers, academic staff and students from higher institutions, polytechnics and universities.
