Basic Seminar Cutting Technology

Actual challenges for metal cutting are shorter cycle times and increasing cost pressure with the same quality demands as well as the application of innovative design materials. To react to these challenges, the user needs to understand the potentials of modern tools and technologies and apply them in a professional way.

The Basic Seminar Cutting Technology provides a basic understanding of the chip formation process and the process parameters. The optimal choice of tool material, machinability of different material classes and the determination of surface integrity are core topics of the seminar. The basic understanding provided from the seminar is furthermore presented by means of hands-on practices at machine tools and test rigs.

The Basic Seminar Cutting Technology is made for technologists that recently started working with cutting of geometrically defined cutting edge or seek to renew or deepen their knowledge. The provided basics are particularly relevant for difficult-to-machine materials of turbomachinery components.
