The strong points of Iwate University’s Faculty of Science and Engineering are die-molds, casting, and devices. This is a center for research and development that integrates and combines the research and development of die-molds, casting, and devices. We aim to improve each technology, create new industries and new products, form an academic research base, and foster international researchers and engineers to build a manufacturing hub that is connected to and integrated with the region.
Research Center for Die and Mold Technology
This is the first center for die and mold technology at a university in Japan. It was established to advance technological research of die and mold technology and to become an international research hub.
