SIREN - Stability Islands:

Performance Revolution in Machining

What is SIREN about?

Research goal

Accurate identification and reliable use of stable cutting parameter islands to achieve breakthrough in cutting efficiency. The three work packages are all related to dynamic contact problems to be resolved via distributed delay models.

Concept and Methods

Project summary

Cutting went through a revolution in the 1990s when high-speed milling (HSM) was introduced: the sculpture-like work-pieces produced with high precision and efficiency resulted in one order of magnitude less parts in cars/aircrafts, which kept this traditional technology competitive at the turn of the century.
