We would like to thank Prof. Dr. Seiichi Ando.

In this Welding laboratory, Dr Seiichi Ando, who was appointed from the Japan Railway Technology Research Institute at that time to a professor at Nihon University in 1954, opened the our Laboratory.
The research origin is of Shinkan-sen welded rails. High-speed railway construction was difficult if the rails were not welded, and Dr Ando's advanced welding technology was applied. Our research has been accelerated by the introduction of electron beam welding equipment.
