Research Center for Casting Technology

Role of the Research Center for Casting Technology

Research Center for Casting Technology

The Research Center for Casting Technology is supporting product manufacturing in the region through research and development of casting technology in a partnership between the region and the University. The research center consists of the Basic Research Division on the campus of the Faculty of Engineering and the New Technology Application Division at the Mizusawa Satellite in Mizusawa Ward, Oshu City.
The research center is engaged in research and development, industry-academia- government collaboration, fostering of human resources, development of product manufacturing, educational and public relations activities, and international exchange. It plays a role not only in research and development, but also in industry-academia-government collaborative development projects; the fostering of students, working people, and regional engineers; support for product manufacturing development in the region; and the establishment of a base for international exchange in technical research with universities in China and Korea.

Research Outline

The Basic Research Division consists of cast iron and casting, nonferrous, and materials evaluation sections. In particular, the cast iron and casting section aims to create highly functional, high-strength compound cast iron having the features of exceptionally high toughness, strength, cutting performance, and wear resistance.
