The Fourth CMI Symposium was successfully held with attendance of many people.
We have posted the presentation materials, so please refer to it.

The world’s aircraft industry is maintaining a high rate of growth of 5% per year by economic growth in emerging countries and the development of globalization. Besides, aiming improvement in fuel efficiency, CFRP, titanium and Al-Li alloy are being applied to aircrafts to make the airframe lighter. They are called difficult-to-cut materials and establishment of new technologies for high speed machining is necessary. In April 2013, CMI, a project through industry-university-government collaboration was launched. In CMI, 3S(Science, Speed, Same Target) is our slogan and active researches are conducted.
In this symposium, we will introduce you about current market outlook, technology trends and also participations of small and medium-sized companies in CMI activities.
