Multi Tool Turning- Supported by Department of Mechanical Engineering IIT Guwahati:

PhD work guidance in progress at IIT Guwahati Student Mr R Kalidasan (2010-17) along with Prof U S Dixit

Objective:

To understand the multi tool turning process comprehensively and to evaluate its suitability

Methodology

Design and develop suitable tooling for deployment of two single point cutting tool for turning operation in a conventional center lathe

Develop condition monitoring system to measure and monitor the cutting and feed forces of double cutting tools, temperature of workpiece and cutting tools and vibration level of cutting tools
