- Can you provide material samples?
- Yes, we can provide material samples. We also provide services upon request, such as assistance with subsequent prototyping and suggestions on how to evaluate prototypes etc. Please feel free to contact us.
- We would like to develop a new product using magnesium alloys.
- We will examine what kind of support is suitable and make a proposal by utilizing our development resources for commercialization in "materials, prototyping, testing and evaluation".
- What kind of prototyping, testing and evaluation is available in Kurimoto?
For example, we can provide the following types of prototyping, testing and evaluation using our resources. We can provide prototypes using die-casting machines that we do not have, in cooperation with our partner companies.
・Metal mold casting, sand casting, die casting
【Tests and evaluations】
・Metallographic observation and chemical analysis (related equipment: SEM, EDS, XRF, EPMA, etc.)
・Measurement of various mechanical properties such as hardness, tensile, fatigue, friction and wear, etc.
・Measurement of various thermal properties (related equipment: laser flash apparatus, transformation point measurement system, etc.)
- I have the impression that magnesium is flammable and dangerous.
- Our Mg alloys are safer to use because they are less flammable. We can also provide advice on the handling of magnesium upon request. Please refer to the website of International Magnesium Association（https://www.intlmag.org/）for basic knowledge and workshops on the safe handling of magnesium.
