Materials Science Forum publishes collaborative research article on materials and products for accelerator targets.
A journal published by Trans Tech Publications Inc. entitled "Materials Science Forum Vol. 1024" Online March 15, 2021 covers the area of joint research on materials and products for accelerator targets involving several engineers from Metal Technology Co. Ltd.
ALE Co. Ltd. (Minato-ku, Tokyo) is a space startup company that was started in 2011 to create the world's first man-made shooting star. Metal Technology Co. Ltd. (Nakano-ku, Tokyo) founded in 1960 is an engineering company with expertise in metal processing. At first glance, these two companies would seem to have little in common, but in fact, they are in partnership together to make a difference. Metal Technology Co. Ltd. (MTC) is supplying additively manufactured components for ALE's satellites.
What do you imagine when you hear the words “Super Plastic Forming”? When you read academic and professional articles on the topic, they can be inaccessible and challenging for those who do not know about the technology. Here, we try to present an easy to understand and accessible explanation on Super Plastic Forming (SPF).
Here at Metal Technology Co. Ltd. we are closely involved in a variety of material development and manufacturing. Alongside this our subsidiary in Sweden, MTC Powder Solutions (hereafter MTC PS), has also developed knowledge and understanding of duplex stainless steels used for Oil and Gas equipment. In this piece below, we would like to introduce a short overview of the usefulness of Duplex Stainless Steel written by Jan-Olof Nilsson, a Senior Advisor for MTC PS and an expert in materials technology.
On May 29, Metal Technology Co. Ltd. (MTC) donated one hundred face shields, which can be utilized to prevent coronavirus infection, to the Kanagawa prefectural government. MTC’s Kanagawa plant and technical center staff have been responsible for the production of the face shields.
Face shields compatible for those wearing glasses, Distribution will be made to medical institutions and the manufacturing data to be made accessible
Metal Technology Co. Ltd. (MTC) has begun producing "face shields" that can be used by medical professionals. We are using our 3D Printers at MTC’s Kanagawa Plant to manufacture the shields. MTC plans to distribute face shields to medical professionals from early May.
Metal technology Co. Ltd. will be present at the exhibitions below.
・TCT Japan 2020
29 th January 2020 (Wed) to 31 st January 2020 (Fri)
・Additive Manufacturing Expo
26 th February 2020 (Wed) – 28 th February 2020 (Fri)
In cooperation with Metal technology Co. Ltd. (MTC) Shimoda Iron works Co. Ltd. has successfully obtained NORSOK certification. The certification covers flanges with a maximal thickness of 184.2mm which are produced using Near-Net-Shape techniques (HIP-NNS method). We are the first manufacturer in Japan that has been successful in acquiring this NORSOK qualification for this product.
The Mercury Target Container Unit 8 was delivered to J - PARC (High Intensity Proton Accelerator Facility) on the 22nd of September 2017. Metal Technology Co. Ltd.’s engineering division was responsible for designing and manufacturing the Mercury Target for the 7th time. Under the guidance of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA), we thoroughly reviewed the contents of the design and production of Unit 7,the previous product, and applied several improvements to this new Unit. As a result, we were able to complete it after a 2 year design and production period. In mid-April 2018, at J-PARK, a proton beam of around 300kW has been continuously irradiated under user manual operation. From the end of April, we have been able to meet our original goal of operating at 500kW.
Dr. Sakai, an Associate Professor, and his laboratory team at the Resilience Engineering Research Center, University of Tokyo is conducting advanced multi physics simulation technology into atomic/resilience engineering, as well as food and pharmaceutical engineering areas.
A device to be installed at MLF (Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility) of J－PARC (Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex). Protons are accelerated and made to collide with the graphite target, thus producing muons.
A light scattering device constructed to reduce the background noise through high speed neutrons on the measuring instruments. MTC has supplied 4 T0 Choppers to J-PARC’s (Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex) MLF (Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility).
A NBI (neutral beam injection) electrode made of oxygen-free copper for the JAEA Japan Atomic Energy Agency.
A ceramic vacuum chamber to be used as part of the X-ray Free Electron Laser facility SACLA. The inside of the vacuum chamber is the orbit for the electron beam. The product is completely non-magnetic.
MTC has rich experience with the brazing of beryllium that has a high transmissivity of radioactive rays and is therefore often used for accelerator and X-ray source windows.
The collimator (movable mask) is part of the SuperKEKB, a large scale accelerator of the electron-positron collider-type (large scale electron-positron collider-accelerator).
Prototype electrode and support frame for NBI (neutral beam injection) device to be installed at ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor).
MTC has rich experience with building L-Band and S-Band tubes and other accelerator cavities of linear particle accelerators.
A device installed at MLF (Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility) of J－PARC (Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex).
A PSD (position sensitive detector), used in the field of neutron research. Until now, Stainless Steel has been used for PSD, but MTC realized the world’s first PSD made with highly Neutron-transmissive Aluminum Alloy.
MTC has rich experience with the construction of target anodes for medical and industrial use electron accelerator. Targets are used to produce x rays by radiating the electron beam.
A light scattering device that siphons out a certain energy (level) off the neutron beam, in which several (levels) of energy coexist.
Apart from the visible matter we know, the universe is made up of dark matter: invisible, unknown matter, the existence of which could not be demonstrated yet.
Metal Technology Company has conducted collaborative research with members of the Quantum Science and Technology Research and Development Organization (QST), and Ibaraki University (Saegusa Laboratory) on the ECH (electron cyclotron resonance heating) of the superconducting tokamak plasma nuclear fusion experiment device “JT-60SA”.
The beam pipe is a vacuum chamber with a complicated structure that is used as part of the SuperKEKB, a gigantic accelerator leading the physics experiments in elementary particles in Japan.
Diffusion bonding is one bonding method performed by diffusing atoms. Through heating and pressurizing metals, but without melting the base metals, you can produce a perfectly bonded part.
Metal Technology Company designed and manufactured the latest version of the SCRIT electrodes, which form the core part of the “study of the internal structure of short-lived unstable (radioactive) nuclei” conducted by RIKEN.
