Micro stamping process for medical and electromechanical compomemts
Meso-scale material modeling considering crystal structure and surface roughenss
Fabrication of bio and medical microtubes by dieless forming process
Non-contact measurement techniques of plastic deformation
Development of Intelligent metal forming process
Our lab. are conducting research on deformation process on the theme of "material deformation" related to metal forming and plasticity engineering, which is the basic technology of "manufacturing" in Japan. We cover both experimental and theoretical approaches such as stamping process, tube forming, material modeling, dieless forming without using any dies and tools, micro metal forming by focusing on “permanent deformation of materials” from a standpoint of cross-cutting issues from micro to macro-scale.
