This one-day forum will bring together industrial users with researchers to discuss the opportunities and challenges of advanced cooling and share the latest research and best practice.

This year, we welcome speakers from Seco Tools, Spirit AeroSystems, Institute of Precision Machining Hochschule Furtwangen University and University of Sheffield AMRC, with more to be confirmed.

Venue: AMRC Knowledge Transfer Centre, Advanced Manufacturing Park, Rotherham S60 5WG

The Nuclear AMRC is leading research into supercritical CO2 cooling for challenging machining tasks, combining it with minimum quantity lubricant (MQL) techniques for optimum performance. The technology has been shown to reduce tool wear compared to traditional oil-based coolants, but needs further R&D to optimise CO2 and MQL delivery parameters and cutting conditions for the most demanding tasks.

Carbon dioxide cooling can generally improve machining efficiency and increase tool life while minimising the risk of component failure. The Nuclear AMRC is developing this sustainable cooling approach to improve component surface integrity, cleanliness, reduce the cost of the components, reduce waste and cut the environmental impact of machining.

Discover how innovative research is helping to bring advanced cooling processes to market, see them in action on production-scale machines, and find out how your business could benefit from these exciting new technologies.
