Cutting parameters used in machining operations are usually selected based on tool manufacturers’ catalogue recommendations or by operator's experience. This is not optimised to the application at hand. At Sirris, we can help you identify tool behaviour and tap the optimal performances in your machining processes with a simple but proven dynamics test.

Industry 4.0 stands for far-reaching digitisation of production and is a goal for many companies today. Including companies with metalworking activities. However, digitisation, standardisation and automation require first and foremost efficient and controlled machining processes. In a webinar series, we will refresh the basic knowledge and link it to digital evolution. In this webinar, we discuss how to switch from trial-and-error to a structured testing approach.

Industry 4.0, which stands for the far-reaching digitisation of production, is what many companies are striving for today. Including companies with a metalworking activity. Digitalisation, standardisation, automation ... require first and foremost, efficient and controlled machining processes. Via a webinar series, we refresh the basic knowledge and link it to the digital evolution. The first topic to be discussed will be tool wear.

Industry 4.0, which stands for the far-reaching digitisation of production, is what many companies are striving for today. Including companies with a metalworking activity. Digitalisation, standardisation, automation, ... require first and foremost, efficient and controlled machining processes. This is what we learn from the existing digital success stories. In a new webinar series, we will therefore first focus on the basics and then make the link to digitalisation.

Sometimes the question arises to what extent cryogenic cooling is environmentally-friendly, as the gases used are a consumable, unlike other refrigerants that can be reused. Cryogenic processing does have interesting environmental advantages. The environmental impact of the entire cryogenic cooling process is many times lower than that of conventional cooling.

Cryogenic cooling during machining stands for machining at very low temperatures. This has advantages both for tools made of heat-resistant materials, where the heat can be high during machining, and for the machining of softer materials, which will flow more easily during machining.

Almost 10 years after the introduction of cryogenic machining, a lot of research has been conducted on this technology, its application and pros and cons. However, despite the positive results, the step to the industry does not seem to be so obvious. High time to present this interesting machining method in detail in a short blog series, of which this is the first one.

The future of the machining industry will be digital. A Factory 4.0 has a transparent shop floor and connected machines, as well as other advantages. What exactly does digitisation mean for you as a machining company? And how does it provide solutions for the challenges you are facing today?

Due to developments in data-driven algorithms, more and more AI tools are being developed to process images. Supplying images of tools to AI models can automate this inspection process. The first steps in this direction have been taken in a recent research project.
