W1 Cutting Tools
W2 EU Project: GPS&V

Workshop 1: Cutting Tools

Room Sala Vivaldi at Centro Culturale Don Orione Artigianelli, Rio Terà Foscarini, 909/A, 30123 Dorsoduro, Venezia, IT
Monday 4th June 2018
Time: 15:00 – 18:00

The facilitator is Dr Oltmann Riemer, Laboratory for Precision Machining (LFM), DE

This workshop will provide a hands-on introduction to Cutting Tools and best practices with real-life applications from several organisations (facilitated by O. Riemer)

  • Welcome and  Schedule by O. Riemer, LFM (Bremen)
  • Cutting Tools for Ultra-Precision Machining, O. Riemer, LFM (Bremen)
  • Beyond the Aspherics, A. Cox, Contour Fine Tooling
    Diamond tools have traditionally been used for decades for producing aspherics and ultra high precision components. Increasingly Freeform designs have led to increasing demands on the geometry of traditionally simple tooling. At the same time the need to produce sub-micron structures on vast areas has led to many innovations in diamond processing and component manufacture.The presentation/workshop will cover
    Freeform, Fast & Slow Tool Server, Milling
    FIB and Laser, a route to the Nanometer World
    Assisted Machining, Ultra-sonic , Laser or both
  • Novel approach to tool setting using on-machine metrology and correct tool path compensation for negative rake tools using DIFFSYSM. Tanniru, AMETEK Precitech
    Accurately setting diamond tools and correctly compensating the tool path for their shape are critical to achieving the best results in ultra-precision machining.  This talk will focus on the comparison of two processes for tool setting.  The first process is the traditional one which is cutting a set up part and then using off machine metrology equipment to measure it.  The off line measurements give results that indicate the x-offset and tool height adjustments required to bring the tool in line with the center of rotation of the spindle.  The second method is a novel approach which yields the same x-offset and tool height adjustments using an on-machine horizontal observation camera.  Using on-machine metrology results in a significant time savings and also frees up off machine metrology equipment for measuring final components.

Workshop 2: EU dissemination project GPS&V (Geometrical Product Specification and Verification as Toolbox)

Room Sala Goldini at Centro Culturale Don Orione Artigianelli, Rio Terà Foscarini, 909/A, 30123 Dorsoduro, Venezia, IT
Monday 4th June 2018
Time: 15:00 – 18:00

The project co-ordinator is Wojciech Płowucha, PhD
University of Bielsko-Biala, Poland

The ISO standards for the Geometrical Product Specification and Verification (GPS) define an internationally uniform symbol language, that allows expressing unambiguously and completely all requirements for the micro and macro geometry of a product with the corresponding requirements for the inspection process in technical drawings, taking into account current possibilities of measurement and testing technology. This avoids ambiguities and inconsistencies during the planning of manufacturing and inspection processes and in addition costs through time-consuming arrangements between the client and suppliers.  The GPS that is inherently inscribed in design of mechanical parts plays important role in the competitiveness of a company and essential in client-supplier co-operation. Basing on the experiences of the consortium members and especially industrial partner VW, one can be sure that both the companies and engineers await a high quality training offer in the range of Geometrical Product Specification and Verification.
