Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining has been well established and utilized in different industrial sectors such as aerospace, marine, oil & gas, automotive, MedTech, precision engineering (PE), moulds and dies as well as offshore in a certain extent. But it has certain constrains on producing components or products particularly for customisation-based production at fast turn-around time under the high-mix-low-volume business demand. Smart machining has tremendous potential and is becoming one of new generation high value precision manufacturing technologies in line with the advance of Industry 4.0 concepts. Advanced smart machining technologies are essential processes in precision engineering industry.
To remain competitive and profitable, plants and machines will have to be smarter: better connected, more efficient, more flexible, and be safer.
about the programme
This programme is designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of managers, engineers and even operators in precision engineering companies on understanding and using advanced smart machining technologies to fulfill the relevant industrial requirements.
It is structured to equip the participants with the fundamentals and state-of-the-art on the latest developments in smart machining technology through lectures and lab demonstrations. Remanufacturing will be reviewed as case studies in industrial applications. With the guidance of course mentors during practice sessions, participants will work on a specific relevant project of their own choice using the learned knowledge and skills to address practical problems in their workplace. 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.
