Mechanical Design and Manufacturing


Dr. Adilson José de Oliveira is Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN) since 2010. He was Guest Lecturer at University of Boras, Sweden, in 2016. He received his Master's and Doctorate degrees, in Mechanical Engineering, from State University of Campinas (UNICAMP), in 2003 and 2007, respectively, both in the manufacturing subjects. He works on mechanical design, instrumentation, and machining processes. His current research focus is milling and turning of hardened materials, dynamometers based on strain gauges, design and manufacturing of mechanical manipulators, integration of CAD/CAM/CNC chain. During his professional career, he worked at ZF Brazil and Picchi (currently MetalCoop) companies, as well as at Educational Society of Santa Catarina as Lecturer.



Adilson José de Oliveira é Professor Associado do Departamento de Engenharia Mecânica da Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN) desde 2010. Esteve como Professor Visitante na University of Boras, na Suécia, em 2016. Concluiu o Doutorado e o Mestrado, em Engenharia Mecânica, na Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP) em 2007 e 2003, respectivamente, ambos na área de manufatura. Tem como principais áreas de interesse o projeto de sistemas mecânicos, a instrumentação e a processos de usinagem. As linhas de pesquisa atuais envolvem o fresamento e o torneamento de materiais de alta dureza, construção de dinamômetros, o projeto e a manufatura de manipuladores mecânicos e a integração da cadeia CAD/CAM/CNC. Ao longo da carreira profissional trabalhou nas empresas ZF do Brasil e Picchi (atual MetalCoop), além de ser professor-pesquisador na Sociedade Educacional de Santa Catarina.
