Techniques for evaluation and assaying
The UACJ R&D Division provides customers with optimum solutions by installing a variety of evaluation equipment and analysis devices and pursuing the optimization of comprehensive materials, surface treatment and processing.
- Evaluation devices
Tensile testing machines, fatigue testing machines, creep testing machines, cyclic corrosion testers, stress corrosion cracking performance test devices, etc.
- Trial production equipment
Rolling mills, extruders, large-scale presses, fin-forming devices, brazing furnaces, FSW, etc.
- Assaying equipment
FE-SEM, SEM-EDX, TEM, EBSP, EPMA, AFM, high-performance optical microscopes, laser microscopes, etc.
Analysis of rolling, extruding, press forming, collisions, fluids, thermal conditions, solidification, dispersion, etc.
- By using various CAE simulations, the number of trial productions and evaluation tests can be reduced.
- By analyzing plasticity processing, the mechanisms of deformation can be revealed.
- Impact beams, bumper reinforcements, steering beams, various arms, buffering materials, etc.
Application examples for protecting the heads of pedestrians
Materials characteristics and optimum forming conditions can be predicted.
