Advanced Manufacturing Processes Laboratory (AMP)
Welcome to the Advanced Manufacturing Processes Laboratory (AMP) at the University of British Columbia (UBC). Our research focuses on improving existing and developing new manufacturing processes, in order to fabricate precision components with high-quality surface finish, geometric accuracy, and high process efficiency. The research is applied in aerospace, optics, bio-medicine, and electronics industries. We conduct both theoretical and experimental investigations to understand the fundamental process mechanism , and apply the results to enhance the manufacturing performance.
Specific areas include: machining of composite materials; hybrid additive manufacturing – machining processes; shear localization in chip formation in machining; surface texturing; vibration assisted machining; surface integrity analyses etc.
|Machining of CFRP Composite Components
Laser-based Additive Manufacturing Machine
|Tool-Chip Interaction in Metal Machining
||Micro – Milling with Vibration Assistance
We have openings for Ph.D. and Master’s students. Specific Requirements are listed below:
- Applicants for Ph.D. positions should have Master’s degree in Mechanical or Materials Engineering from accredited college or university.
- Applicants with strong theoretical and practical backgrounds in materials mechanics, vibrations and mechanical design are preferred.
- Applicants should have demonstrated written and oral English abilities.
Please refer to http://mech.ubc.ca/graduate/prospective/applications-admissions/#research for Admissions Requirements and Processes.
We are actively seeking academic and industrial collaborations in the areas of precision machining, additive manufacturing, optics manufacturing, aerospace and automotive manufacturing and biomedical applications.
