Comprehensive tie-up for Development of Printing Technology with the Advanced Research Insitute for Science and Engineering, Waseda University


A press conference was held at the Advanced Research Institute for Science and Engineering of Waseda University on August 31, 2005 to announce the comprehensive technical cooperaton in the development of printing technology between the university’s Advanced Research Institute for Science and Engineering (Mr. Yoshimasa Hama, Director) and TKS.  With a history of 50 years the former Research Institute for Science and Engineering was newly reorganized in April of 1993 to form the Advanced Research Institute for Science and Engineering.  About 900 people are involved in research work which includes research in differing fields to link society with developments relating to fundamentals and application of science and engineering with the purpose of “contributing to the development of scientific technology and welfare of mankind”.  The research structure can be classified into three categories:  technology, science and environment.

Through the mutual and effective utilization of human and material resources and intellectual properties, which the university and enterprise both possess, development of business and advancements in academia can be attained while contributing to society.  In the next five years, themes will be determined for joint research projects and in addition to the technical achievements, the intent is to utilize the results to create new entrepreneurial opportunities.

This year’s joint research themes are: 

    1. Theoretic behavioral analyses of printing cylinders.
    2. Evaluation of blanket cylinder behavioral characteristics.
    3. Research on rewritable printing cylinders.
    4. Research on remote systems for various devices.
    5. Research on next generation printing systems.

Every year thereafter, checks will be made on the progress status with determinations made on whether to continue or revamp these themes.

With this comprehensive cooperation, TKS can look forward to being able to take a differenct perspective look at the printing process overall, instigating development of next generation printing systems, securing human resources and expanding human relationships, and utilization of the concentration of brain power.
