Social Liaison & Research Center / Advanced Additive Manufacturing Research Center

ImagePromoting the innovation of additive manufacturing(AM) technology and development of human resources.
This is performing the development of additive manufacturing mostly with metal materials that are essential to “Monozukuri (manufacturing)” for the next generation, along with the development of a new multi-material 3D printer.
With laser additive manufacturing modeling as a target, we are tackling the monitoring and analysis of melting and solidification mechanism, the simulation of thermal deformation, and the clarification and computerization of the relations between the powder characteristics and fabrication conditions of functional materials. We are also developing 3D printer with various types of materials made of metals, polymer and ceramics.
Innovation of “Monozukuri” in local industries and development of human resources is another major objective.
