Purpose and goal

HYBRIDSURF aims to use unconventional cutting process data in combination with novel cutting edge geometries and optimized cooling methodologies to directly generate ideal surfaces containing the newly found microstructure during hard turning. However, an important part of HYBRIDSURF is the scalability and sustainability which needs to addressed to attract the industry in the long run.

Expected results and effects

Depending on the outcome from HYBRIDSURF, this might be the starting point for innovative research work that could change how we manufacture for example bearings, camshafts, and gears. Increased research in the field of machining toward innovative solutions to increase the acceptance of Hard machining as a final finishing operation to reduce the cost involved in manufacturing and also reduce the lead time to improve the productivity.

Planned approach and implementation

The project will start with a series of test-screening to evaluate the hypothesis and depending on the outcome, the results obtained from this project will be channelized through a workshop/seminar to create a strong industrial base including all major stakeholders. At the end of the project, the interest from the industrial partners will be scrutinized to evaluate the possibility for a full-scale project to push the research to next level.
