The aim of digital machining research is to develop mathematical models of metal cutting operations, machine tool vibrations and control. The science-based digital models allow the virtual design, testing, optimization, monitoring and control of machine tools and machining operations. The model predicts the cutting forces, torque and power consumed in machining parts by considering CNC system dynamics, material properties, cutter geometry, structural flexibilities, and cutting conditions along the tool path.

Today's production with customized and specialized machine tools is often unable to achieve this requirement. As a result, autonomous systems that provide more flexible automation and more production freedom, while still maintaining high productivity and robustness regardless of lot size, are needed. Autonomous machine tools have the ability control the production themselves. In addition, the machine tools are able to adapt to unforeseen changes during the process. The basis for this are intelligent components with sensory and actuator capabilities. Intelligent Components for Autonomous Machine Tools

Artificial intelligence (AI) techniques have been successfully applied in various social and consumer applications, such as voice and image recognitions, social media, advertisement, etc. However, AI techniques have seen limited adoption in industry, primarily due to the difficulty in obtaining adequate sets of training data that are required by various machine learning or neural networks. This presentation will discuss the challenges of adopting AI techniques to industrial applications, and propose a concept of industrial AI (augmented intelligence). Furthermore, experienced operators or engineers accumulated significant knowledge or experience over their professional career. The value behind historical maintenance records should also not be overlooked. Additionally, when sensory data and algorithms are combined with the engineering models, human experience or expert knowledge, and historical records, a new paradigm of industrial AI (iAI) becomes a powerful solution to many industrial problems. Selected applications will be presented to demonstrate the value of this new iAI.Industrial AI and Its Applications

Invited Speaker

The smart machines in the smart factory are equipped with IIoT-enabled sensory and connectivity components which enable to capture and store the status of machine and work-in-process in the form of Big Data. Big Data, structured or unstructured, characterized by multiple sources, real-time velocity, and massive amount, can be processed, visualized, and analyzed for the purpose of improving quality of product, cost of operation, and delivery of finished product. The benefits of dealing with such Big Data can be achieved the four well-defined sequential analytics: Descriptive, Diagnostic, Predictive, and Prescriptive Analytics. Such Industry 4.0 related technologies as Statistics, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Optimization are the foundation for successfully creating values from those analytics. In this talk some of challenges and best practices will be presented to help particularly the small to medium manufacturing firms leverage the advanced technologies and analytics.The Brain of Smart Machines: AI and Data Analytics

Improving the basic properties of machines, especially the accuracy and quality of machined surfaces, machining performance and entire manufacturing processes, or the reliability of machines and processes are among the main objectives of development and application of advanced computing and simulations. One of the main challenges of current manufacture is the high degree of product individualisation. In particular, advanced simulation and compensation models help reduce the risk of poor final quality and enable better utilization of the machine's production potential. An appeal to scientific community to disseminate of smart strategies in real industrial environment is actual.Smart Machine Tools

Today, we live in an increasingly on-demand world. This transformation is happening in the manufacturing industry. The on-demand manufacturing technology makes personalised products with fast delivery possible. When the tool is damaged, the machine replaces the new tool automatically without interrupting the processing. The dedicated tool management function calculates the accumulated cutting time for each tool to record the total tool usage time and manage the tool lifespan. The function notifies users in advance when it is time to replace the tool based on the tool lifespan and optimises machining conditions for each tool through Hwacheon’s unique machining optimization functions.Smart Machines for On-Demand Manufacturing

Advanced optics must to be fabricated with nanoprecision on surface and profile. In order to achieve this, nanoprecision machine tools and machining processes must be applied to optical fabrication. In recent years, nanoprecision machine tools which are driven at single nanometric resolution have been developed and moreover, higher resolution toward picoprecision is now being started to be studied. The ion-shot processing can be used both for dressing on nanosurface grinding, and also for surface modification on cutting tools and workpieces enabling direct nanosurface cutting of ferrous materials using diamond tools.Optical Fabrication Technologies with Nanoprecision Machine Tools

In spite of the rapid development of the machine tool industry toward Industry 4.0 and Smart Factory, CNC controllers’ support has always been lag behind the customer’s up-to-date requirements and needs. Considering that all CNCs have a similar goal to accomplish accurate and optimal control of axes and spindle to produce qualified products with the given tool, workpiece, and cutting condition, there should be very little differences in its intrinsic fundamentals. Based on these beliefs and industrial needs, we prepared the intelligent and unified HMI platform to innovate the legacy old-fashioned CNC application development processes and to relieve the struggles of many researchers and application developers in the machine tool industry. We hope that this presentation could be a stage to share the latest application scheme of platform technology in the machine tool industry and to discuss better ways together.Smart Machine Tool Development based on Intelligent HMI Platform

During the last years, there has been an increased interest in the use of 3D Printing technologies in many industrial applications and it have been identified as one of the most promising production technologies. Why the 3D Printing is smart? First of all, because at the very beginning the 3D Printing technologies were identified as a segment with high growth potential as well as high performance manufacturing and correspond to high levels of technology maturity. Second one, if we stop printing, different internal components can be perfectly incorporated. Also, can be added sensors, mechanical components such as screws, nuts and even can be reinforced the plastic or biodegradable materials used with different reinforcements even metal reinforcements. The main objective is to identify benchmarks from different industrial branches, based on the criterion of the existing functionality and the companies need.Smart 3D Printing
