CESMII (The Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute) invests in Smart Manufacturing innovation through projects with funds awarded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE). The objective of these projects is to develop emerging technologies, drive research and innovation, and deliver on their mission to democratize Smart Manufacturing. ITAMCO (Indiana Technology and Manufacturing Companies) and the University of Buffalo were awarded the opportunity to develop “Hybrid Modeling for Energy Efficient CNC Grinding.” The Project Lead is West Virginia University. PROJECT OBJECTIVE The principal goal is to reduce the extremely high energy consumption of grinding processes for gear manufacturing by at least 15% through hybrid modeling of the grinding system holistically.
