ASANO Kazunori

Position
Professor
Laboratory
Composite Materials Laboratory
Foundry Engineering, Composite Materials Engineering

We are actively involved in research on heat-resistant and wear-resistant composite materials in which metals are reinforced using ceramic particles or fibers. We are also doing R&D on environmentally benign melting and solidification technologies aimed at saving energy, conserving resources, and recycling.

TOMITA Yoshihiro

Position
Lecturer
Laboratory
Ferrous Materials Laboratory
Foundry Engineering

Metal for complex shapes such as an engine is cast by first melting the metal and then pouring it into a mold. We study environmentally friendly casting processes and do research on enhancing the value added to products as well as boosting their functionality.
