About this book

At the beginning of the 21st century, manufacturing industry is faced with new challenges stemming from globalization and the need for environmental sustainability. The progress of micro-/nano technology means that precision engineering is now considered to be one of the core disciplines necessary for coping with the sometimes severe requirements of new product and system development. From basic research to practical applications, advanced process-technological methods for the design and synthesis of micro-/nano-systems are becoming more and more important. This collection of papers, presented at 11th International Conference on Precision Engineering, includes high-quality papers for industrial and scientific sources, discusses leading-edge technologies and forecasts future trends. Topics covered include but are not limited to:

• advanced manufacturing systems;

• ultra-precision- and micro-machining;

• nanotechnology for fabrication and measurement;

• rapid prototyping and production technology;

• new materials and advanced processes;

• computer-aided production engineering;

• manufacturing process control;

• planning and scheduling for production and

• CAD/CAE/CAM.

Taken together, this volume is an up-to-date source of knowledge, a basis of further work for researchers and scientists, and also a good reference for graduate students in studying ideas and techniques related to precision engineering.

About the authors

Professor Kimura was a research associate at the Electrotechnical Laboratory of the Japanese Ministry of International Trade and Industry between 1974 an 1979 when he moved to the University of Tokyo as an associate professor. He has been a full Professor there since the late 1980s.

Professor Kimura is one of the pioneers in the field of solid modelling and CAD/CAM research. He has worked in solid modelling, free-form surface modelling and product modelling. Today his primary research area is Digital Engineering and Inverse Manufacturing (Environmentally Benign Manufacturing). His research interests now include the basic theory of CAD/CAM, concurrent engineering, engineering simulation, virtual manufacturing, total product life cycle modelling and management, reuse-oriented product/system design, and preventive maintenance. He is involved in the product model data exchange standardization activities of ISO/TC184/SC4, and is a national representative of ISO/TC184 and IFIP TC5, a member of IFIP WG5.2 and 5.3, and an active member of CIRP. He is chairman of the evaluation committee of the IMS Program under METI, the technical committee of the Inverse Manufacturing Forum, MSTC, and other governmental and public committees.

Professor Kimura has previously edited/written the following titles: Computer-Aided Tolerancing (0-412-72740-4), Geometric Modelling (0-7923-7538-6) and Rapid Product Development (0-412-81160-X).
