Analysis Technology Research Center
We support the manufacturing and development of our group's products through advanced analysis and CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) technologies. Our main bases are in our Osaka, Itami and Yokohama works. We have bases in external facilities such as the Kyushu Synchrotron Light Research Center.
Strategic CAE Infrastructure Development
Keywords: simulation, computational server, high-performance computing
The use of CAE is not simply intended to improve product development efficiency. We regard it as a key technology for attaining market competitiveness. Our efforts are directed toward infrastructure development to enhance core functionality of CAE within the Sumitomo Electric Group.
Dissemination and Promotion of CAE Analysis Technology
Keywords: simulation, promotion, widespread, training, automatic
We promote the development and widespread use of CAE analysis techniques that are useful for product design. We work on the transfer of analysis techniques to our design departments using procedures that precisely meet designers’ needs. Our efforts include providing training to designers and developing simplified/automatic analysis systems.
Electric Wire Service Life Prediction
Keywords: simulation, metal fatigue, cable
Mobile phone hinges, automotive doors and robot arms incorporate electric wires and cables in their moving parts. We are working on the development of CAE technology for predicting the service life of such wires and cables until breakage due to twisting and bending.
3D Structure Visualization
Keywords: 3D, CT, FIB
Three-dimensional structure visualization has been developed to observe the internal structures and targeted areas of composite materials, parts, products. This technology is useful for improving product quality and developing solutions to problems.
Elemental Mapping with Sub-Micron Resolution
Keywords: elemental mapping, electron probe microanalyzer
We are working on the development of technology to visualize, with high spatial resolution, the distribution of a low-concentration dopant that determines the characteristics of functional materials and parts, using an electron probe microanalyzer.
Fine Structure Analysis with Atomic-Resolution
Keywords: atomic-resolution,Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM)
Our efforts are directed toward developing fine structure analysis focusing on scanning transmission electron microscopes as well as their practical application. Utilizing these technologies, we promote the development of high quality and highly functional materials and devices.
Synchrotron Radiation and Neutron Analysis Combined with Simulation Techniques
Keywords: synchrotron, neutron, in-situ, first-principles calculation
We are developing analysis technologies using synchrotron radiation and neutrons in order to investigate material structures at the atomic level and to perform in-situ measurement of chemical reactions. We utilize two beamlines of synchrotron radiation those are exclusive to Sumitomo Electric Group. Additionally using simulation techniques such as first-principles calculations, we are exploring new materials through the clarification of their high performance mechanism.
