The project has 3 RTD goals to facilitate and support a profiling techniques of coated and uncoated AL-sheets. honeycomb Al-structures and composite materials: improvement of cut quality and cutting velocity in order to save time and money in machining and in the future assembly and processing steps reduction of coolant media and dust/fume generation in order to reduce cleaning steps, health risks and environment pollution optimised production and system performance by installing a co-operation between European partners using a cutting data base, CAD-NC-file transfer, reverse engineering techniques and macro programming tools. The practical work will be carried out at the RTD-partners and at the industrial partners. All partners will be interconnected by personal contacts, cutting data transfer and electronic file transfer. By that existing machine facilities can be used from all partners right from the beginning of the project.
