This project is funded by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 Programme under grant agreement no. 723853.     

Dr. Erdem Ozturk, from AMRC presented and shared COROMA project’s progress on Virtual Machining and Robotic assisted machining in MACH18, an event intended to be the destination of choice for engineers and manufacturers, bringing together the best of UK manufacturing under one roof.

Our project partner took advantage of this opportunity to exhibit our latest, leading edge, developments to an audience of key decision-makers attracted from across the UK’s manufacturing sectors. This edition, Birmingham has been the  witness of the impact of the latest innovations in Robotic assisted machining.

Robotic assisted machining is a technology where robot supports the part while a machine tool cuts it. This support can decrease forces acting on the workpiece, and results in increased damping. The application of this technology improves the dimensional and surface quality of the final workpiece. It can also improve the stability of the machining process, providing a productivity advantage. Additionally, Dr Ozturk had the opportunity to show some results of the project, such as a method to reduce the form errors in a milling process.
