Basque Research Center Begins Work on Cryogenic Machining

CICMarguneResearch organization CIC marGUNE has announced a cooperative research line to study cryogenic machining properties.

CIC marGUNE, a high-performance manufacturing cooperative research center located in the Basque region of Spain, will work with UPV/EHU (University of the Basque Country), Spanish technology center Tecnalia, and the University of Mondragón to study the process of cryogenic machining and its applications in aerospace manufacturing. Researchers are keen to focus on sustainable aspects of cryogenic machining, particularly the reduction or absence of chemicals that manufacturers must dispose of at high cost in order to prevent negative effects on the surrounding environment.

Additionally, cryogenic machining’s use for aerospace manufacturing provides a cheap and precise technique for manufacturing safe parts under tight tolerances.

“[Carbon dioxide] can be applied externally to an already existing machine, without the need for any modification to the equipment, greatly saving on investment,” Franck Girot, coordinator of the CIC marGUNE research line, said in a statement. “There are already proof that the technology functions and so it is a research line directly related to our companies, and which may well arrive onto the market shortly.”
