Non Traditional Machining

General Overview


Goals for advanced machining research are to improve the accuracy, productivity, flexibility, and reliability of different machining processes and associated machine tools, cutting tools, and fixtures. A few of the general thrust areas in advanced machining include: 

  • Minimum quantity lubrication machining 
  • Electrical discharge machining (EDM) 
  • Error compensation in machining 
  • Drill research 
  • High performance machining 
  • Friction stir processes 
  • Biomachining: Nano-scale, biologically-based machining of metal
