CMC Machining

What are suitable technologies and parameters to trim CMC-components?


Challenge and Motivation

  • CMC may become more relevant for use in the hot section of turbomachinery in future
  • Machining of CMC is not state of the art today
  • Thus, it is unknown what the most suitable and efficient machining processes are


  • Compare different machining processes for realization of an individual feature by experimental analysis
  • Identifying potential of improvement of each machining process by parameter studies
  • Benchmarking of the machining processes (e.g. regarding material removal, surface quality, tool wear, reliability, etc.)
