Hitachi Metals established the new corporate research lab, "Global Research & Innovative Technology Center (GRIT)," in April 2017, and promotes the creation of new businesses that will take the company into the next generation, aiming to promote medium- to long-term R&D on advanced materials that contributes to sustainable growth and society.

The company also takes part in an industry-government-academia collaboration project, "Creation of global advanced metallic material base - Next Generation TATARA Project," which was selected by the Cabinet Office as a recipient under its "Regional University and Local Industry Revitalization Grant Program" in November 2018. In this project, the company works with Shimane Prefecture, Shimane University and local businesses in R&D on materials for aircraft engines and energy-efficient motors.

In this context, Hitachi Metals signed an agreement with the University of Oxford regarding the establishment of a joint research organization on amorphous ribbon and Ni-based superalloys, and opened "Hitachi Metals- Oxford UTC of Metallurgy."

By integrating the metallurgical technologies held by University of Oxford, a world leader in this research area, and the material development technologies of Hitachi Metals, a manufacturer of high-performance materials, this joint research organization will promote efforts to build a process model of Fe-based amorphous ribbon and to identify dominant structural factors affecting mechanical properties of Ni-based superalloys, with the aim of establishing processing and material technologies that will contribute to the advancement of next-generationenergy-efficient motors and aircraft engines.

Through this joint research organization, we will further strengthen open innovation and create products and solutions that anticipate market change.
