Materials Manufacturing Group

Our group consists of two subgroups:"Metal Melting & Plastic Working" and "Welding". "Metal Melting & Plastic Working" subgroup has a full range of technologies and facilities, from metal melting to plastic working, to support in research into metallic materials. We carry out materials fabrication and provide technical support for research and development that a researcher might request. "Welding"subgroup offers high energy density beam welding process using electron beam welding.

Specialized Research Field

  • Melting & Plastic working : Vacuum melting, CCLM melting, ESR melting
  • Forging & Rollong
  • Welding : Laser welding
