Dr. Ahmed El-Gohary, President of the Egyptian Japanese University of Science and Technology, announced the registration of a new patent at the university, after a research team succeeded in creating a design of a two-dimensional vibratory device developed to be applied in milling machines to overcome some of the problems of the developed vibrational designs.
El-Gohary explained that the university seeks to link scientific research with industry and sets priority to support applied research that serves society and arrives at solutions to industry problems in order to support the implementation of Egypt’s strategy for sustainable development 2030.
He pointed out that the importance of this innovation lies in overcoming some of the difficulties faced by the industry, as innovation provides a manufacturing method for hard, hard metals that are difficult to operate and cut.
For his part, Dr. Mohab Hussam, the principal researcher of the project, explained that it has become difficult at the present time to meet the increasing demand for the manufacture of micro-components designed from difficult-to-cut and fragile materials through traditional and advanced manufacturing processes, explaining that to solve this problem, the research team succeeded in introducing vibration into a process. Cutting by applying a certain frequency of vibration, which is called vibration assisted cutting (VAM), where vibration is applied in various ways in technological processes to improve the performance of the machines.
Dr. Mohab added that the research team had registered a one-dimensional patent, and as a continuation of the development work, the research team came up with the innovation of the two-dimensional device to improve performance in the cutting process.
Dr. Mohab Hussam emphasized that vibration assisted manufacturing techniques have recently become an area of interest for many engineering applications, and the introduction of vibration in operations can lead to improvements when applied in a controlled manner, indicating that the patent targets the application and control of two-dimensional vibration during a workpiece. Milling process, in order to improve the cutting performance.
He added that many researchers have made different designs to apply two-dimensional vibration to obtain better cutting performance in the milling process, but these designs have some problems that affect the accuracy and performance of vibration applied during the cutting process, and therefore this innovation introduces the design of a two-dimensional vibratory device developed to be applied in Milling machines to overcome some of the problems of the previously developed two-dimensional vibratory designs.
