Welcome to the
Micromachining and Manufacturing
Modeling Lab (m3) was created in 2010 in order to cover the
educational and research needs in advanced manufacturing fields,
and micromachining in particular. In addition, the m3 supports
manufacturing subjects of mechanical engineers in general, such
as machine elements. m3 lab provides advanced scientific
knowledge to students, while being actively involved in research
collaborations with other Universities and Research Institutions,
and promoting collaborations with enterprises for the resolution
of practical problems.
The research fields where m3 is
actively involved, or provides services via the Special Research
Fund Account of the Technical University of Crete, are:
Simulation of manufacturing processes, Microtechnologies,
CAD/CAM/CAE, Finite elements method analysis for production
technologies, Reverse engineering and Specialized subjects of
bioengineering and nanotechnology.
The research conducted at the m3 Lab involves theoretical
development and applications of manufacturing processes and
especially Gear Cutting, Face and Peripheral Milling, Turning,
Drilling and Laser engraving. m3 is engaged in the development
of a wide range of optimization procedures for the above
processing technologies. The research and
educational activities of the Laboratory have been funded by
several grants obtained from the European Union, the Greek
Government, financial institutions and private companies.
