Research

I have been working with the field of CAD/CAPP/CAM since 2003 and developed some interesting methods and approaches. My field of interest is widespread from Design to Manufacturing and the following areas are of utmost importance to me:

Computer Aided Design (CAD) / Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) / Computer Aided Process Planning (CAPP) / Machining of Free Form / Prismatic / Rotational parts (5/3 axis), Tool Path Generation / CAD/CAM Modeling & Automation (Coding Java, C++, C, Cloud-Web based @CAD/CAM - UG NX/Solid works/ProE, etc.) / Industry 4.0 / Digital Twin / Manufacturing Processes and Benchmarking/ Feature Recognition / Agent based Integration (AosJack) / CAE / STEP AP203/214 and STEP NC Automation / DFMA / DFX / FEM analysis & Simulation of Manufacturing Processes / Statistical Analysis for Quality & Six Sigma / Metrology systems.
