Abstract

Full mold casting (FMC), an effective manufacturing process for relatively large and small lot production, fits in well with information technology (IT) because FMC uses polystyrene foam for making patterns effectively shaped using CAD/CAM and a machining center, with IT making FMC extremely powerful in production. Kimura Chuzosho Co. which has been developing FMC since 1996, established original IT-based FMC in the early 2000s, maintaining domestic and international competitiveness in product quality, price, and cycle time as detailed in the sections this follow.
