This is a collection of some of my projects, along with the skills developed working on those projects.
Micromatic Grinding Technologies Limited, 2014-2015
Skills: Kinematics, Machine tool design, Grinding process design, Project management
Grinding non-circular contours on a cylindrical grinding machine is achieved by interpolation of the wheel-infeed (linear) – X-axis with the work-piece (rotation) – C-axis. I developed the algorithms to convert a non-circular work-piece profile into machine C,X coordinates, along with analysis tools for checking the largest grinding wheel diameter possible, checking for interference, profile smoothing, and motion optimization. I also worked on business development. This effort resulted in a new product line of non-round grinding machines for the company.
Micromatic Grinding Technologies Limited, 2012-2014
Skills: Grinding process development, System approach, LabVIEW
Developed a portable, in-process monitoring tool measuring power and wheel displacement signatures in cylindrical grinding machine tools. Such signatures, like health signatures in medicine, help in process troubleshooting, optimization, and benchmarking. Developed training materials and trained the application engineering team in its use for more than 40 case studies spanning multiple customers across the country.
