The center will focus on the testing of super-tough lightweight structural material.
The center will focus on the testing of super-tough lightweight structural material.

Teijin Limited has opened a Technology Development Center at its Matsuyama Factory in Matsuyama, Japan for the research and development of its high performance fibers and composite materials business.

The 7,700 m2 center has facilities for test production and evaluation of structural materials, design and evaluation of smart wearables and a burn evaluation system for protective clothing (to be transferred from the Osaka Research Center in December). The center is also equipped with facilities for design, test production, measurement, analysis and evaluation of materials, parts, products and services.

The center will initially focus on developing solutions for high-performance composite materials and expanding its scope of monitoring services. Projects are already underway for smart wearables and lightweight structural materials to be developed by integrating high materials and IT.

The company also plans to make new business opportunities by strengthening collaborations with Teijin Product Development China Co, Ltd, a yarn and textile product development site opened last year in Nantong, Jiangsu, while leveraging the Matsuyama Factory’s R&D functions in plastics, carbon fibers and composites.

Events

2nd Annual International Conference on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

Initiated in 2014, ICNSNT continued its’ momentum to explore the emerging advances in nanoscience and nanotechnology. The ICNSNT-2015 has scheduled an excellent programme consisting of an Executive Round Table, an exhibition, special sessions, discussions, a social networking dinner, a cultural show and an optional post conference tour.

2nd Annual International Conference on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology encourages the exchange of ideas between chemists, physicists, material scientists, biomedical researchers, engineers and other researchers who are active at the frontiers of this diverse and multidisciplinary field. Coverage extends from basic research in physics, chemistry and biology, including computational work and simulations, through to the development of new devices and technologies for applications in a wide range of industrial sectors (including information technology, medicine, manufacturing, high-performance materials, and energy and environmental technologies).
