Paper Abstract

Recently, the focus is on microforming of three-dimensional products, and many products are being produced in this way. We have investigated the microforming technique and forming machine that exclusively fits for making of medical micro tool as medical forceps. In the forming, both the freedom of the forming shape and productivity are important conditions to a process. To answer to these requirements, it was considered valuable to study methods combining various machining processes. From such viewpoint, we developed the new microforming system by using pressing and cutting and its functions were investigated through the forming experiment.
