Super high speed grinding facility for difficult-to-machine materials and structures (2013–2014)

Abstract:
High speed grinding offers great potential for excellent component quality combined with high productivity for difficult-to-machine materials and structures, which is of particular importance to the existing and future research activities in the Australian manufacturing society. This facility integrates the unique features of super high cutting speed, great stroke rate, high stiffness and nanometre accuracy into one system. Its installation will not only facilitate the needs of a large number of existing ARC funded projects of leading research teams, but will also generate new technical innovations and scientific breakthroughs in a wide range of disciplines that are currently impossible to realise.
