Technical group of applied electrostatics was re-organized as a permanent group in 2011 with the name of technical group of electrophotography. Technologies related electrostatics of powder cover a wide range of applications, such as image formation, removal of fine particles, electrostatic powder coating, formation of functional thin film. For further improvements and innovations on such technologies, systematic research from fundamental to application are required from the view point of powder technology.
Current level of technology, trend and activities in future
Automakers are developing and commoditizing various electric vehicles such as hybrid car, plug-in hybrid car, EV, range extender EV. As the result, there is a tendency of multiproduct in in-car battery. Flexibility and database approach corresponding to various materials is required in equipment of battery manufacturing. Collaboration between equipment makers having core technology and material makers is indispensable to win global competition.
