Most components used in many industries such as aerospace, automotive, marine, or energy are subjected to heavy and demanding operating conditions. As such, these components need to be enhanced to achieve the desired functional performance, aesthetics and high fatigue life. These value-added enhancements can be realised through a myriad of surface enhancements and finishing technologies. It is thus important to understand the fundamentals and principles of these technologies, in particular, state-of-the-art mechanical and laser techniques and how these processes react with materials to better optimise the process efficiency, product quality and cost to maximise the economic benefits for businesses.
This module introduces the fundamentals of surface enhancement and finishing processes via mechanical and laser techniques, such as rolling, peening, burnishing, mechanical finishing processes (eg. vibratory bowl finishing), drag finishing, abrasive flow machining, magneto-rheological finishing and grinding, laser surface treatment for functionalities and marking, laser peening and laser finishing processes. Participants will gain a solid understanding of these processes and the issues and effects on work substrates. Participants will also be guided through hands-on project-based sessions on real-world industrial topics using SIMTech equipment and instruments to further enhance their understanding of surface enhancement and finishing technologies and applications in the manufacturing industry.
