S11: Advanced materials and innovative processing ideas for production root technologies

“Production Root Technologies” refers to a collection of six production technologies including casting, molding, forming, welding, heat treatment, and surface treatment. Production Root Technologies involve both materials and process technologies that are hidden behind products and do not frequently appear outward. However, they are very important fundamentally and greatly influence material performance. As the functions of products become more complex and robust, the importance of these Production Root Technologies grows concurrently.


Production Root Technologies have an inherent interdisciplinary nature, inevitably including a broad spectrum of skills from starting materials all the way up to component manufacturing and module integration. As demand increases for sustainable energy, especially by employing novel materials, composites and/or functional (e.g., energy scavenging, storage, and saving) techniques, the interdisciplinary approach plays even a greater role. Therefore, this symposium is designed to provide an opportunity for the world’s leading scientists and engineers from many fields to exchange ideas and to build new collaborations in the fields of Production Root Technologies. Many successful stories and noteworthy examples of transforming 3 D (dangerous, dirty, and difficult) aspects of Production Root Technologies into ACE (automatic, clean and easy) form will also be recognized and shared.
