Application of innovative technologies makes high-performance machining more effective
Due to rapid progress in production technology, processes are constantly optimized and often exhausted up to their performance limits. The introduction of new high-strength materials and wear-protective coatings continuously creates new challenges for machining. Thus, developing machining processes with geometrically defined cutting edges comprises analysis and optimization of characteristic process variables. Furthermore, it includes implementing resource-efficient cooling-lubrication strategies optimal for this process. In order to achieve essential economic progress, it is often no longer sufficient to optimize a single process. In this context hybrid technologies are ideal to overcome technological limits.
