Top technology from Sirris at the High Performance Cutting Conference

The 7th High Performance Cutting Conference will be taking place in Chemnitz in Germany between 31 May and 2 June. This is a top event covering both current and future cutting technologies and the industry. Sirris is also actively involved with a number of its own innovations.

We are making two presentations at the High Performance Cutting Conference with rapid, cost-effective and innovative projects involving cutting technologies. They came about during a recent research programme into precision processing. The aim of the event? Meeting up and having interesting discussions and the sharing of ideas with other organisations, scientists and engineers. 

Fast prototyping and integrated laser beam hardening

During the first presentation we will be showing how we made a prototype gearwheel in a precision cutting machine within a short space of time. This type of production normally takes 12 weeks. We completed everything in 24 hours.

Our second presentation is about our initial research results for laser beam hardening. Using this technology we made an injection moulding nozzle much harder than is possible with conventional technologies. It took just a few seconds.

Organisation in first rate hands

This year the High Performance Cutting Convention is being organised by the famous Fraunhofer IWU (Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology) and is once again supported by CIRP (College International pour la Recherche en Productique).

Interested in top cutting technologies?

Register for the High Performance Cutting Convention and attend our presentations. Information about the event is on the event website.

We will be addressing in more detail our projects via Techniline in June. Moreover, we will also be publishing the scientific papers.
