This apparatus is jointly developed by Fuji Electronic Industrial Co.,Ltd.
and National Research Institute for Metals to contribute to research and development
in the field of iron and steel materials in the 21st century based on our technology
for manufacturing and controlling heat-deformation simulating machines acquired over
a long period of time. It incorporates a mechanism for arbitrarily controlling
temperature of the specimen and deformation dies at the time of processing and
a mechanism for changing the direction of processing (multi-axis) for controlling
internal microstructure of various kinds of metals.
