History

Conference History

Importance and advantage of high speed machining (HSM) of Aluminium alloys was recognized during 1930’s by Professor Solomon. His pioneered results were rediscovered at beginning of 1990’s. Intensive development in field of cutting tools (especially sintered carbide), machining chatter prediction and avoidance, design of high revolution motorized spindles, application of linear drives and also advanced control systems enabled again to use the principles of HSM in practical applications. 1990’s brought explosion of new knowledge and application of HSC. Thus, research team leaders at Université de Metz - LPMM (France) and PTW Darmstadt (Germany) decided to start the High Speed Machining conference focused on sharing practical experience as well as scientific results in field of HSM. The basic board of organizers was extended in 2006 by Tekniker research institute (Spain). Since 2006 also the conference was organized once per one year regularly. The conference scope included wider spectra of machining aspects and also machine tool design and control. RCMT (Czech Republic) joined the board of organizers in 2008. Through the joining of NUAA (China) in 2010, the conference confirmed the worldwide dimension of this machining researcher meeting. Today, the High Speed Machining conference involves also other type of progressive manufacturing technologies, including high performance machining, laser machining and texturing and additive manufacturing technology. Also design of machine tools and related topics of virtual simulation, optimization, increasing of machine tool accuracy etc. are important part of the conference. The upcoming 16th High Speed machining Conference follows the long conference tradition, excellent scientific and application quality confirmed by CIRP sponsorship and also worldwide dimension.
