Summary The Thermal Engineering Laboratory in the Advanced Metal Mold Technology Division conducts research into various natural phenomena caused by heat transfer based on experiments and computer-assisted calculations. One of the studies, for instance, is on the relationship between the shape of ice and the flow of water around it when the ice melts and the water freezes. To manufacture plastic products, resin is hardened in a mold, which is machined out of metal. We study how resin flows when it is poured into a metal mold and how it hardens when the mold is cooled, with the aim of finding better ways to make metal molds.
