The laboratory for cutting machine tools offers various laboratory exercises every semester for students from MAB/PS (6th semester) and as part of a mandatory elective module.
The individual laboratory topics are:
- Fixture construction (clamping a workpiece for machining on a milling machine)
- Turning and burnishing (CNC turning with different feed rates followed by burnishing to produce surfaces in the range of Rz 1 μm. Such processes occur in many areas of industrial manufacturing (e.g. hydraulic cylinders),
- Hard turning and grinding of a hardened component (comparison of the two processes used in industrial manufacturing to produce highly stressed precision components such as gear shafts or expansion screws),
- Force measurement and chip formation during turning (to determine the energy conversion during turning (Kienzle's cutting force relationship) and chip formation with different manipulated variables of the process and
- Gear machining (manufacturing and testing a gear by hobbing and profile milling).
