In this laboratory, the development of manufacturing process of metal and metal powder materials using plastic deformation has been mainly studied. The components produced by these processes is at the core of the manufacturing industry. Among them, process technologies related to plastic deformation and powder metallurgy have been focused in this laboratory. Many kinds of processing technologies being investigated such as Metal Injection Molding (MIM) making mass production of complex parts possible, Laser Addictive Manufacturing producing directly complex 3D part from CAD data, Process for non-equilibrium powder whose atomic structure is controlled at random or nano scale. At the same time, we are also developing sintering modeling and simulation techniques for elucidating these fundamental phenomena. We are conducting a series of research from analysis to experiments for proposing new processing to industrial world.
