Abstract The environment surrounding manufacturing is changing significantly and JTEKT, which produces mother machines (machine tools) as its flagship products, must respond to this change in order to secure its survival. Particularly signifi cant changes are the shift to electric vehicles and the reduction of the working population. In this paper, we will introduce our production equipment and processing methods enabling us to produce small, lightweight, high precision parts for EVs. We will also provide examples of smart technology for equipment and factories, as well as 3D metal molding technology as responses to the reduction of the working population.
