Innovation Center for Production Engineering (the organization of Chubu University) held a lecture on March 5, 2018 (photo).
Approximately 40 people participated from machine tool, automobiles, optical relations industry.
In the special lecture, three researchers including the organization and universities participated as speakers.
Akira Hosokawa, the professor of Kanazawa University, gave a lecture on turning processing of difficult-to-cut materials with ADRT tool.
In the ADRT in which turning processing is performed while rotating a circular tool, heating and cooling of the cutting edge are repeated during processing.
Since the thermal load on the tool is reduced, it is expected to be applied to machining of difficult-to-cut materials.
Professor Hosokawa explained the superiority of ADRT in machining difficult-to-cut materials and the optimum machining condition from the viewpoints of cutting temperatures, cutting resistances, and chips.
Also, four professors from Chubu University attended the center and reported their research results.
Professor Hirofumi Suzuki introduced a highly efficient micro machining technique of titanium for implants.
The organization was founded in 1988 by the university for the purpose of technical research through industry-academia collaboration.
