Successful continuous operation at the equivalent to 1 MW of MTC’s Unit 8 Mercury Target Container at J – PARC.New
Metal Technology Co. Ltd.’s designed and manufactured 8th Mercury Target Container unit, which was delivered to J-PARC (High Intensity Proton Accelerator Facility) in September 2017, has achieved high levels of operation. J–PARC, which is run by the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA), started the proton beam of around 300 kW after installing the Mercury Target Container (Unit 8) in early September 2017. After gradually raising the output, the unit successfully operated at 500 kW from on April 19, 2018 to June 30th, 2018. On July 3rd, 2018, we achieved our desired goal of operating continuously at 1 MW. This is a fantastic achievement that MTC is very proud to have achieved. We can confidently state that the Mercury Target Container (Unit 8) has displayed a high performance and our thanks go to all of those connected to the project.

Metal Technology Co. Ltd. employee received the “Award for Excellence” at the 12th Nuclear Fusion Energy Alliance Workshop on June 29, 2018.
Due to the recent developments in desirable energy for the future this was a wide-ranging academic workshop which aimed at mutual understanding in several related fields. Progress in research utilizing nuclear fusion energy, in fields such as core plasma and nuclear fusion engineering, are developing to support its use in future energy applications. Hironobu Kudo from our fusion group presented "Consideration of a blanket with box type ribs for production of a prototype reactor and concept for manufacturing", gaining high praise and the award at the workshop.

-Presentation details-
In the nuclear fusion prototype reactor, a blanket having the function of self-production of fuel, extraction of heat for power generation, and shielding is needed. The blanket requires high robustness (toughness) to allow high temperature/ high pressured cooling water to flow through under tough environmental conditions inside the reactor. Currently, a joint special team for designing a prototype reactor is developing a blanket installing ribs inside a box type casing to meet such demands. However, it has been an issue that this blanket structure was too complicated to manufacture by using general welding methods. Therefore, Hironobu proposed a method using diffusion bonding with Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) and proved that it can be manufactured with high accuracy of internal structure by making a partial mockup.
