The research at DMMS falls broadly into three categories: Machine systems, Processes and Precision and measurement techniques.
The field of machine systems deals with construction and design principles for machine tools and machining systems for advanced component manufacturing. It includes "smart" machines and testing and analysis of their condition.
The area of processes focuses on manufacturing processes such as milling and turning, but also hybrid machining and strategies for machining.
Precision and measurement techniques
The area of precision and measurement technology is about development of new tests and analysis tools for monitoring and characterizing the condition and performance of manufacturing systems. Smart sensors, data collection systems, integrated data analysis and drones for industrial environments are included as new parts of theses activities.
