The use of super-critical CO2 as a coolant for milling has generated considerable interest in recent years due to the efficiency gains this technology can create, especially for medical device manufacturing. The technology is considered a potential game changer for efficient milling.

In this seminar at the KSF Lab, Institute Director Prof. Dr.-Ing. Bahman Azarhoushang will give a live demonstration of the technology and present the results from the latest trials. The seminar takes place on March 24th, 2022 in Tuttlingen and will be held in German. You can view the program and register directly via the link below.

If the seminar is fully booked or you cannot make it to Tuttlingen, we will share with you the results from the latest trials in this webinar and review the potential of the technology for medical manufacturing. The webinar will be available in English from May 4th.
