7th International Conference on Tribology in Manufacturing Processes

International Research Group of Tribology in Manufacturing (IRGTM) in collaborations with Thai Tribology Association (TTA), National Metal and Materials Technology Center (MTEC), King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT), and Khon Kaen University (KKU) are organizing the 7th International Conference on Tribology in Manufacturing Processes (ICTMP) during February 28 to March 2, 2016 in Phuket, Thailand.

The aim of the conference is to present the latest developments in the research of tribological aspects in manufacturing processes, particularly in the following topics:

  • Tribology in forming processes
  • Tribology in cutting and finishing processes
  • Tribology in joining processes
  • Functional surfaces
  • Advanced (nano/bio) tribology

The scope of interest is related to friction, lubrication, wear, surface engineering, process modelling, applied plasticity and environmental issues. In this conference, we are strongly interested in “Tribology of Tool Materials and Designs for High Performance and Extended Service Life”. Focused tool applications are (but not limited to):

  • Extrusion
  • Forging
  • Machining
  • Stamping

The applications can range from nano scale, to micro/meso scale, to macro scale. In addition, the presentations include practical guidelines for solving tribological problems in an industrial environment.

The conference will be held at Mövenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket, Thailand from Sunday February 28 to Wednesday March 2, 2016.
