Research theme

Development of intermediate base materials and establishment of molding process.

I will focus on R&D such as continuous molding on FRP intermediate base material, and also examine optimization techniques in molding processes such as press molding using them.

My goals

I've done a lot of basic research on CFRP molding and engaged in the molding process of resin and CFRP until now. I would like to develop the continuous molding technology of CFRP and the scaled-up FRP molding process by taking advantage of the experience and knowledge.

Previous background/experience

As a technical support staff of Ishikawa carbon fiber cluster, I performed trial manufacture, molding processing and evaluation of the CFRP in Industrial Resarch Institute of Ishikawa. In addition, I have provided technical support and consultation to companies.
