CMC-Machining#

What are the most suitable technologies and applicable parameters to trim SiC/SiC?

 

Challenge and Motivation

  • SiC/SiC will become more relevant for the hot section of turbomachinery in the future
  • Machining of SiC/SiC is not state of the art today
  • Suitability/efficiency of possible machining technologies is unknown

Objectives

  • Comparison of different machining technologies (milling/grinding & EDM) by experimental analysis
  • Technological and economical benchmark
  • Identification of potentials for optimization
