Near Net Shape Manufacuturing（anzai）Laboratory
Shaping things using computer-controlled processing machines
Many industrial products are mass-produced cheaply yet precisely with the use of molds. Needless to say, how a product should be processed and shaped is an important factor in creating a mold. Our laboratory is studying how products should be processed to attain desired shapes, and our research topics include how to shave metals at a high speed, how to make tiny engravings, how to make shiny surfaces and how to make models using laser exactly in line with what is designed on the computer.
