Metal and Alloy Materials Testing
Testing, Analysis and Inspection of Metals and Alloys
Shimadzu manufactures a complete range of analytical tools for the evaluation of all types of metals from the traditional precious metals used in fine jewelry to modern ultra-lightweight alloys used in jet aircraft.
Below are some examples:
Evaluation of Press Work on Sheet Metal
Pressed parts made of lightweight materials with poor workability, such as high tensile steel, aluminum alloys, and magnesium alloys, are essential for reducing the weight of transportation equipment. Repeatedly modifying the die to achieve a target shape not only increases costs, but also lengthens the development period. One solution currently being tried is to reduce the number of actual samples evaluated by using simulation to predict forming problems in advance. As simulation technology continues to evolve, the use of methods such as the Yoshida-Uemori Model, which considers a greater number of factors than previous methods, including plastic strain dependence of elasticity based on the r-value and the Bauschinger effect, has increased.
