Projects|Material Solutions Center, Tohoku University(MaSC)

Tohoku University Material Solutions Center (MaSC) is a cooperative base between industry, academics and government that has been set up in a joint effort by Tohoku University and its Institute for Materials Research, Institute of Multidisciplinary Research for Advance Metals, and Institute of Fluid Science and uses grants for facilities expenses from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.


Development of electron beam melting based additive manufacturing technology and new materials
This project aims to elucidate the various physical phenomena that occur in electron beam melting (EBM), a type of 3D printing for metals, by experiments and computational simulations, and to develop new additive manufacturing technology based on the findings. Furthermore, this project seeks to establish a new academic field of physical metallurgy which systematizes the physical reactions specific to EBM, that is, EBM metallurgy, and develop new highly value-added materials.
