Sustainable Manufacturing Process & Systems
Novel sustainable production systems to minimize environmental loads for the manufacture of micro/meso-scale features and components are developed in this research thrust. In particular, the sustainable mechanical milling, drilling and grinding processes for difficult-to-cut materials such as titanium and nickel alloys are developed and their performances are evaluated. In addition, the new cooling and lubrication systems combining cryogenic gas flow and nanofluid are designed, fabricated and optimized to enhance the sustainability.
