At the lecture, Akinori Yui, the professor of National Defense Academy, gave a speech on the topic of “cutting-edge grinding techniques and grinding equipment.”  He introduced highly efficient grinding methods such as creep feed grinding and speed stroke grinding.  The international safety standard “ISO16089” for grinding machines established in November 2015 was also mentioned.

Professor Yui explained that the allowable thickness of grindstone covers differed between ISO16089 and domestic standards, and he introduced the differences between the two standards in an easy-to-understand manner based on experimental data. Many participants were interested.

In addition, Naomichi Furuki, the  Associate Professor of Kansai University explained how to cut die mold steel while reducing the wear of diamond tools. Various approaches such as nitriding treatment of mold steel materials were mentioned. The center was founded by Chubu University in 1988 for technical research through industry-academia collaboratio.
