ESR13 - Muhammad Arif Mahmood



Muhammad Arif did his Bachelor’s in Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering from University of Engineering and Technology in Lahore (Pakistan). He did his final year project with Interwood Mobel PVT. LTD. on the Lean manufacturing and Ergonomics implementations to improve the quality, reducing cost of product through waste elimination and to develop safe, healthy and comfortable work environment. Later, he moved to Taiwan to study Master’s in Mechanical Engineering from National Cheng Kung University.


In his master’s thesis, he worked on a project in collaboration with China Steel Corporation, Kaohsiung, Taiwan. This project was related to the mathematical modelling of cold rolled surfaces which were used to observe light properties which was tested for Aluminum and CQ Steel cold rolled specimens and Tool Steel Roll morphologies. Experimental and simulational optical results were compared to provide the trustworthiness of mathematical model. Relationships were built-up between optical and fractal parameters not only for the cold rolled specimens but also for the roll surfaces. Last but not least, X-Ray Diffractometer, Micro/Nano Tensile test and Rockwell hardness tests were carried out to study the effect of reduction ratios over phase transformations and mechanical properties (Young’s modulus and Hardness).


All these experience gave him strong background in simulational and manufacturing tools which will be helpful in DOC-3D-Printing project.
