SYMPOSIUM 11: Advanced Materials and Innovative Processing Ideas for the Production Root Technology



“Production Root Technology” symbolically refers to an integration of six production technology groups including casting, molding, forming, welding, heat treatment, and surface treatment. The production root technology entails both materials and process technologies. These are hidden behind products and do not frequently appear outward.  However, they are very important fundamentally and greatly influence the material features. As the functions of products become more complex and robust, the importance of this production root technology is concurrently growing.


Unlike other technology fields, the production root technology has an interdisciplinary nature in itself, since it inevitably includes a broad spectrum of skills from material synthesis all the way up to parts and modules manufacturing. Also, when the development of industrial components with improved features is demanded, especially by employing the novel materials and ceramics and composites or by employing functional (low-friction, protective, or decorative) coating methods, the interdisciplinary approach plays even a greater role. Therefore, this symposium is designated to properly serve and to provide a precious opportunity for the world’s leading scientists and engineers from many fields to exchange ideas and to build up new collaborations in the field of production root technology. Many successful stories and noteworthy examples of transforming 3 D (dangerous, dirty, and difficult) aspects of production root technology into the ACE (automatic, clean and easy) form will also be recognized and shared.
