How do we effectively utilize advanced materials to boost the capabilities, performance, and environmental adaptability of components used in products such as aircraft and automobiles? We research processing methods that form the essential foundations of manufacturing. In particular, we are developing methods and equipment for manufacturing composite materials that combine metal, polymer, and ceramic. We make materials and machines myself, and explore the importance of "Connecting with different things".
