9th International Conference on Virtual Machining Process Technology (VMPT)    

University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario

Dr. Kaan Erkorkmaz – Conference Chair

Instructions for submitting abstracts forthcoming………………..

VMPT 2020 is sponsored by the Canadian Network for Research and Innovation in Machining Technology (CANRIMT) and is integrated with its annual general meeting. VMPT 2018 builds on previous successful VMPT conferences held in Canada and Taiwan and attended by both academia and industry. Industry requires the rapid development, prototyping, testing and deployment of machining strategies in order to reduce costs and achieve the highest quality. A key tool in achieving this goal is the modelling of product development and manufacturing in a digital environment using science-based approaches in which the complete machining process can be simulated and optimized before resorting to costly and time-consuming physical trials on the shop floor. Digital models must now be integrated into the manufacturing environment to allow an autonomous and continuously optimized production of quality certified parts.
