Manufacturing Research Laboratory (MRL) is involved with R&D activities in the area of machining processes and machine tools. Being one of the most commonly used manufacturing processes due to its unmatched capability in generating high quality parts and flexibility, machining continues to play a very important role in variety of industries such as aerospace, die and mold, automotive, defense etc.

Our focus is mainly on the modeling and monitoring of the process mechanics and dynamics such as cutting forces, chatter stability and machine tool dynamics. We have research interests in the fundamentals of the cutting process as well as multi axis milling, turning, boring and broaching etc. operations.

Our research activities are targeted towards achieving high performance and high precision machining with industrial applications. We collaborate with other universities, research institutions and industry such as aerospace and machine tool companies at an international level.
