Keywords Metal matrix composites, Low pressure infiltration process for MMCs, Microstructure control
Summary Metal matrix composites have great promise as next-generation materials in wide-ranging industrial field. In our lab, we have been developing a new fabrication process for MMCs by introducing micro or nano scale metallic particles into preforms by using a special technique. Previously, a pressure infiltration process for the fabrication of MMCs required a very high pressure resulting in high costs. However, large reduction in critical pressure for the infiltration and precise control of the reinforcement distribution in MMCs can be achieved simultaneously by using this novel process. In addition, to realize a recycling-intensive society with zero emissions, we also focus on development of recycling technology for waste MMCs. Especially we are working to develop an effective separation process for the recycling of MMCs.
