Chicago – Make plans to attend the IMTS 2014 Conferences to learn about Machining Optimization of Composite Materials.
DATE: Thursday, September 11 from 10:00 AM - 10:55 AM ROOM: W-194B
SPEAKER: Gary Meyers, Product Manager - Solid Carbide, Niagara Cutter LLC
Composite materials are widely used in many industries (Aerospace, Defense, Nuclear, Sporting Goods, etc.) because of high strength-to-weight ratio and high stiffness-to-weight ratio properties. These materials are difficult to machine using conventional cutting tools due to the abrasive properties of the materials. Although the major percentage of engineered components are manufactured by near-net fabricating techniques, the conventional and advanced machining techniques on composites play a vital role in meeting the dimensional and assembly requirements. The tooling used to machine the composite materials are very expensive so it is important to use proper techniques and fixturing when machining the composite materials group.
• Tooling Optimization when Machining Composites and Advanced Materials
• How machining techniques can improve part quality
• Machining techniques that control cutting temperatures and effects on materials
The educational and informative conferences run Sept. 8-11, 2014 in the West Building, Level 1. To register for this or any session, visit www.imts.com/education/imtsconference.html.
