SIG Meeeting: Thermal Issues

Thermal effects are regarded as a major contributor to errors on machine tools, on measuring equipment and on work pieces.
Measurement of thermal effects is becoming more important as work piece tolerances decrease, as thermal effects not only use a larger part of the tolerances, but also influence repeatability and long term stability of machine tools, and equipment.

As a consequence, several research groups and industries are working on simulation of thermal effects, in order to finally compensate thermally induced errors, or new help to develop concepts to reduce thermally induced errors.
The intensive on-going work in this area led us to bring together a further internationally-coordinated meeting.

Come and join your international peers and maintain a leading edge on technology, customers, partners and suppliers. Access the greatest minds in working within the field of thermal issues  research and development. Share knowledge and information and stimulate debates.

Themes :
Measurement of thermal influences in production equipment, process and product
Modelling and model reduction techniques
Compensation and correction of thermal effects
Design principles for thermally robust production equipment (e.g. Machine Elements, Machine Structures)
Test workpieces and assessment
Thermo-energetic design
Temperature Measurement & Control

The local hosts and organising committee supporting euspen for this Special Interest Group meeting on Thermal Issues are :- Dr. Theo A.M. Ruijl, MI-Partners Bv, NL; Dr. Josef Mayr, ETH Zurich, CH; Prof. Christian Brecher, WZL, DE and Prof. Steffen Ihlenfeldt, TU Dresden, DE and Fraunhofer IPT, DE
