Article Preview

Bamboo grows faster than other renewable natural materials. Bamboo fiber, in particular, has attracted attention as an environmentally superior material. Therefore, we proposed a sustainable manufacturing system using bamboo. An extraction method of bamboo fibers end-milled using a machining center with in-situ measurement is proposed. Bamboo fibers with high precision shape are efficiently acquired. In the present report, we propose the fabrication of binder-free composite by a hot press forming method that only uses bamboo fibers extracted by a machining center. We experimentally demonstrated various hot press forming conditions and achieved proper forming conditions to optimize the forming process. We also made various three-dimensional shapes considering the practical applications of the formed binder-free bamboo fiber moldings.
