Artificial intelligence (AI) techniques have been successfully applied in various social and consumer applications, such as voice and image recognitions, social media, advertisement, etc. However, AI techniques have seen limited adoption in industry, primarily due to the difficulty in obtaining adequate sets of training data that are required by various machine learning or neural networks. This presentation will discuss the challenges of adopting AI techniques to industrial applications, and propose a concept of industrial AI (augmented intelligence). Furthermore, experienced operators or engineers accumulated significant knowledge or experience over their professional career. The value behind historical maintenance records should also not be overlooked. Additionally, when sensory data and algorithms are combined with the engineering models, human experience or expert knowledge, and historical records, a new paradigm of industrial AI (iAI) becomes a powerful solution to many industrial problems. Selected applications will be presented to demonstrate the value of this new iAI.

The aim of digital machining research is to develop mathematical models of metal cutting operations, machine tool vibrations and control. The science-based digital models allow the virtual design, testing, optimization, monitoring and control of machine tools and machining operations. The model predicts the cutting forces, torque and power consumed in machining parts by considering CNC system dynamics, material properties, cutter geometry, structural flexibilities, and cutting conditions along the tool path. The simulation system predicts chatter-free cutting conditions within the work volume of the machine tool or detects the presence of chatter vibrations along the tool path. An in-house developed virtual and real-time CNC system allows the design and analysis of any five-axis machine tool controller. Current research includes digital twin approach, where virtual simulation and real-time machine tool monitoring are integrated to achieve intelligent, self-adjusting smart machine tools.

Today's production with customized and specialized machine tools is often unable to achieve this requirement. As a result, autonomous systems that provide more flexible automation and more production freedom, while still maintaining high productivity and robustness regardless of lot size, are needed. Autonomous machine tools have the ability control the production themselves. In addition, the machine tools are able to adapt to unforeseen changes during the process. The basis for this are intelligent components with sensory and actuator capabilities.

Advanced optics must to be fabricated with nanoprecision on surface and profile. In order to achieve this, nanoprecision machine tools and machining processes must be applied to optical fabrication. In recent years, nanoprecision machine tools which are driven at single nanometric resolution have been developed and moreover, higher resolution toward picoprecision is now being started to be studied.
For practical application of nanoprecision machine tools, an advanced desktop machine has newly been developed. This machine has 1nm feed resolution, and can mount diamond milling & turning, and also sophisticated grinding capabilities especially with newly developed ion-shot processing. Variety of micro optics can be fabricated on this machine.
The ion-shot processing can be used both for dressing on nanosurface grinding, and also for surface modification on cutting tools and workpieces enabling direct nanosurface cutting of ferrous materials using diamond tools.

During the last years, there has been an increased interest in the use of 3D Printing technologies in many industrial applications and it have been identified as one of the most promising production technologies. Why the 3D Printing is smart? First of all, because at the very beginning the 3D Printing technologies were identified as a segment with high growth potential as well as high performance manufacturing and correspond to high levels of technology maturity. Second one, if we stop printing, different internal components can be perfectly incorporated. Also, can be added sensors, mechanical components such as screws, nuts and even can be reinforced the plastic or biodegradable materials used with different reinforcements even metal reinforcements. The main objective is to identify benchmarks from different industrial branches, based on the criterion of the existing functionality and the companies need.
