Aims and Goals

Machining technology is indispensable for the manufacture of industrial products, and progress in procedures actualizing high-level functions, downsizing/fining down, multi-lamination, and integration of products is impossible without advances in machining technology. The portability of hardware requires innovative machining technologies that should be essentially dissimilar from existing technologies.

This committee develops and conducts investigative researches on machining technology leading to technical innovation with intensive collaboration between the world of academe and industry. The committee aims at globally sustainable progress of technologies in society by the development and spread of future-oriented machining technology and by returning the fruits of those achievements to society.

Research Themes

1. Analyses and considerations of technologies for manufacturing mechanical/functional components and materials in the past, present, and future
2. Development of manufacturing technologies for new materials as well as new manufacturing technologies that integrate materials and machining technologies
3. Development of manufacturing technologies for semiconductors, superconductors, magnetic substances, dielectrics, insulating films, and particles
4. Development of manufacturing technologies for devices with new functions, including sensors, memory, actuators, and displays
5. Establishment of technical procedures in evaluating or estimating the physical and mechanical properties of materials to be machined
