Summary The annual economic cost associated with corrosion is estimated at several trillions of yen. Research efforts in corrosion science and corrosion engineering help reduce corrosion costs as much as possible and improve the reliability of structures and equipment. In response to demands from the mold-making industry clustered in Iwate, I have developed and commercialized anticorrosion equipment which is used for a wire-cut electric discharge machine used in precision mold production. My research is also focused on corrosion measurements to detect, magnetically and in a noncontact manner, the corrosion reaction that occurs in reinforcing steel in concrete that is invisible from the outside. For the measurements we use a SQUID fluxmeter, which can detect very weak magnetic signals.
