 square_cha Mechanical Engineering Center

  square01_b Functions of Mechanical Engineering Center

 Mechanical Engineering Center provides mechanical engineering support to KEK's research, extending
 assistance in fabricating and designing equipment and the necessary parts for KEK's research.

   a. Request for Fabrication :
If KEK staff or researchers of joint utilization research urgently require modifying equipment for an experiment or creating new jigs in the course of their research, we can meet their requirements using machine tools. We respond to requests for fabrication if technological requirements make it difficult to order from a company. We also comply with requests for fabrication that are difficult to satisfy because of budget constraints or a tight research schedule.
We can perform tasks that can be completed with machine tools, measuring instruments, and other instruments. We are always ready to introduce technologically appropriate companies and place orders with them.
   b. Development Business :
When each laboratory or facility develops new instruments or equipment, we participate in the research team from a mechanical engineering perspective and share designing and fabrication work that consider the construction method, mechanism, and strength. We also offer consultative services, providing advice on technological issues submitted by laboratory and facility personnel. Please refer to the column introducing research contents mentioned below for research subjects.
   c. Research on Mechanical Engineering :
KEK conducts research on instruments and equipment for high-energy physics, but it is sometimes difficult to construct these instruments and equipment using conventional technology. In such situations, we take the lead by conducting research on new construction methods and mechanisms. We make constant efforts to actively support KEK's research from a mechanical engineering perspective.
   D. Others :
We purchase or acquire parts, tools, and materials necessary for processing, fabrication, and adjustment in an experiment room or a processing factory. We also provide KEK's personnel with education on operation technology for safety usage of designated in-house machine tools, and provide education on manual processing technology to personnel from other universities.

  square01_b Organization of Mechanical Engineering Center

  The Mechanical Engineering Center has four instructors, 16 engineering officials, one assistant
  engineer, and one clerical assistant. The current organization is as follows:

   a. The center manager, who is also a professor, supervises the entire Mechanical Engineering Center. Associate Professor and Reseach associates concurrently engaged in research support him.
   b. Engineering officials belong to the Mechanical Engineering Section of the Engineering Department. A manager affiliated with the center manager organizes four groups and responds to diverse tasks.
   c. The mechanical Engineering Center responds to various requests flexibly, while one group mainly takes care of requests for fabrication. Likewise, groups mainly involved in development work try to execute requested work if they have sufficient time. Thus, all staff of Mechanical Engineering Center provide multi-faceted research support.

  square01_b Introduction of Research Contents

  Research work of Mechanical Engineering Center is roughly divided into three groups. First, is the
  work in which Mechanical Engineering Center plays the central role. Second is KEK's research work
  in which it participates as a member of the research team. Third is the work that we are conducting
  in close collaboration with other universities such as joint research or joint development research.
  The boundary of the above three works is obscure because we are pursing part of KEK's future
  research from a medical engineering perspective. Our main research subjects are as follows:

   a. Research on manufacturing superconductive cavity using copper-niobium cladding materials and improvement of its performance
   b. Development of seamless pipes of niobium-copper cladding materials
   c. Research on super precision machining and bonding for x-band accelerator structure disks
   d. Research on surface cleaning of x-band accelerator structure disks.
   e. Research on super precision machining and surface profile measurement for x-ray mirrors
   f. Basic research on straightness measurement system for linear collider.
   g. Research on hexapal magnet for superconduting.
   h. Development of on an automated and robotized transfer system in high-intensity Xrays or γrays.
   i. Development of on neutron choppers.
