S11: Advanced Materials and Innovative Processing Ideas for the Production Root Technology

Screen Shot 2015-07-06 at 1.35.23 PM


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