In view of the increasing competitive market, global economic climate and the rising cost of resources, productivity and sustainability has become of paramount concern of manufacturers. The proposed seminar will introduce Cryogenic Liquid Nitrogen (LN2) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) assisted technology to assist manufacturers in 3 primary areas:

  1. Achieving higher productivity through reducing heat generation in cutting zone where high thermal influences in machinability effect tool life and surface quality in the manufacturing process.
  2. Reduction or substitution of the use of conventional liquid coolant as a cooling agent to possibly reduce the needs for costly conventional chemical rinsing, baking and drying secondary process.
  3. Increase productivity by improving yield of high value materials and products such as those in the aerospace, pharmaceutical, electronic, oil and gas industry where conventional cooling technology have been reported to be insufficient or in situation where liquid coolant is forbidden in contaminate free manufacturing process.

The objectives of this seminar are:

  • Introduction the Cryogenic LN2 & CO2 assisted technology for higher machining productivity, sustainability in manufacturing and remanufacturing applications.
  • Introduction to Cryogenic LN2 & CO2 collaborative industry projects under the productivity improvement adoption programme.
  • Round table and feedback session on Cryogenic & CO2 assisted technology adoption.
