What types of jobs are there in the region, and what is important for passing on these industries?

I participated in a class to discover the appeal of manufacturing with first-year students at Noda Junior High School.


・What is the job content of casting and non-ferrous metal manufacturing industry?

・Things and attitudes that are important when working

・What I want to tell today's junior high school students


Sand casting, which has been passed down for over 300 years, is circular manufacturing using in-house refining technology.

The students learned about the sustainable transformation of metals while interacting with unrefined metal scraps.



Class situation

At the start of the class, all students answered that they did not know about casting.

Were you able to convey at least a little bit of the image and fun of manufacturing to students who don't know about casting?

For second-year junior high school students, we learned about the historical background of Kanamori Alloy, manufacturing through sand casting, and environmental conservation by refining Hyatt Centric Kanazawa's discarded aluminum cans and other materials into tableware.


In addition, in the second half of the class, four student representatives experienced sand casting in the classroom. Showing their craftsmanship, the students carefully transferred the shape of the ”animal candy cut” onto the sand.

Kanaishi Junior High School, where 800 people were temporarily evacuated after the Noto Peninsula earthquake on January 1st. I could see smiles on the students' faces from time to time, and I was able to proceed with the class with some peace of mind.


For first-year junior high school students, we explained to first-year junior high school students what kind of products are made from traditional sand casting, and what kind of metal waste is recycled, all by touching the actual product.

It is difficult to see what the future holds for ordinary resource recovery. In order to help people understand recycling, we would be happy if you could learn about our recycling-oriented manufacturing in an easy-to-understand way.
