Objectives

Self-Learning Control to Stabilise Tool Temperatures

  • Controlling and stabilising the tool temperature
  • Monitor and influence the temperature

Internal Micro Cooling Structure

  • Closed circuit internal micro cooling device

Avoidance of Cooling Lubrication

  • Reduced costs for the provision and disposal of the cooling lubricant
  • Minimised environmental damage
  • Decreased production costs
  • Avoid thermal shock damage

Increased Efficiency and Expanded Range of Materials

  • Integration into existing machine tools

Expected results of the project
