Dr. John Schueller, Professor



Dr. Schueller's research is focused on improving the productivity of machining operations. He and his students take an integrated approach, considering such issues as speeds and feeds, tool materials and geometries, cutting paths, fixturing, coolants, and machine tool characteristics (as appropriate for the raw material and final product) to achieve high quality discrete parts in reduced cutting times. They have applied the concepts of high-speed machining to the milling of hardened steel, aluminum, titanium, and magnesium alloys. Current research involves sensing and adaptive control during turning, applying Dr. Schueller's complementary expertise in automation and robotics.
