The PI was one of the lecturer in the initial CISM (International Centre for Mechanical Sciences) course in Udine in Italy. The event was supported by CISM and ERC SIREN Adv grant of Prof. Gabor Stepan.
Stiffness calculation was performed by considering spring elements for the rolling parts of bearings and linear guides. This calculation showed 3.62e8 N/m stiffness by not considering the foundation of the force sensor superstructure. By using replaceable elements the stiffness can be lowered with the special design of the force sensor.
Proceeding paper was submitted to the ASME IDETC/CIE 2019 MSNDC conference with the title: "Modeling and Stability of Milling Processes with Active Damping" by David Lehotzky and Zoltan Dombovari. The paper is about the effect of digital control on regenerative time-periodic dynamical system.
Proceeding paper was submitted to the ASME IDETC/CIE 2019 MSNDC conference with the title: "Optimization of Edge Geometry of Cylindrical Milling Tools to Enhance Dynamic Stability" by Zoltan Dombovari, Daniel Bachrathy, Gabor Stepan. The paper is about the theoretical base of the general edge optimization scheme of a cylindrical milling cutter. The research was partially supported by ERC SIREN.

A talk was given in UTIS conference in Turkey about axles rolling process with the title Basic Regenerative Modelling of Axles Rolling Process by Zoltan Dombovari , Attila Szlancsik , Kristof Bobor and Ruben Merino.
The first version of the digitally controlled manuscript has been compiled. It is under in-house review.
In order to have an efficient methodology to determine the rolling force and to build-up sufficient semi-analytical mechanical model w.r.t. the technological parameters, a simple parametric FEM model is compiled. This model can run with different indentation, roller-diameter and feed. The animation is about the first successful and valid run.
The connection features for mounting the industrial roller shaft are designed on the force sensor. The connection surfaces with the bores and the perpendicular stiffening parts are ensuring the mechanical integrity of the device.
The concept drawing of the retrofitting is finished. The concept is ready for the next iteration step which will contain the force sensor in it. The workpiece is going to be the top shaft, while the roller is going to be placed underneath. This roller is capable to perform feed motion with the linear guides.
The first concept drawing of the force sensor. The forces measured on the four legs placed to the roller mounting part is enough to determine the complete 3D contact force between the roller and the workpiece shaft. The bore between the legs are the place for the threaded shaft that produces the feed motion.
The proceeding paper handled in the 14th IFAC workshop on Time Delay Systems was published online in IFAC Papers online with the title: “On Basic Modeling of the Dynamics of Axles Rolling Process” by Denes Farago, Ruben Marino and Zoltan Dombovari.
The 3D model of the old rolling mill is completed. We have measured the main geometric properties of the duo rolling mill that takes place in Department of Materials Science and Engineering. This old rolling mill is going to be the base of the high performance axles rolling measurements.
The proceeding paper was submitted and presented in the 14th IFAC workshop on Time Delay Systems.
A seminar was given by Tamás Molnar in IUTAM symposium in Novi Sad (Serbia). A two pages extended abstract was submitted with title: “Semidiscretization Method for Nonlinear Time-Periodic Time-Delay Systems”, by the authors: Tamas G. Molnar, Zoltan Dombovari, Tamas Insperger and Gabor Stepan. The talk was about the nonlinear numerical method, that is capable to predict the behavior of nonlinear periodic delayed dynamical systems.
The mesh convergence test was finished. The resulting indentation-force diagrams showed that under a certain size (4mm) of the mesh does not provide better force evolution in the case of indentation-driven calculation. This is not the case in force-driven case when the results depend greatly from the mesh size.
The problem is specified for the digitally controlled milling process.
