JT-60SA: research excellence and
Italian industry in Japan

The experimental reactor for nuclear fusion JT-60SA speaks italian. it will be completed in the next two years in Japan as part of the international research project Broader Approach.

The first JT-60SA coil arrived in Japan

The first JT-60SA superconducting coil TFC-01 manufactured by ASG Superconductors has arrived in Japan at Naka site.

The magnets to study the brain

ASG to build the magnets for a high energy magnetic resonance system designed to produce even more detailed images of the brain, at GIL Hospital in Gachon (Seoul)

The first ITER magnet in La Spezia

One of the largest and most complex magnets ever built in the world has come to the final stage of manufacturing, with the completion of the coil, in the factory of ASG Superconductors in La Spezia. ITER is one of the most important research projects in the world that aims to demonstrate the possibility to produce energy with the same process you can find in the sun and stars.


ASG is manufacturing the toroidal superconducting coils for ITER, one of the most important research projects in the world. ITER seeks to demonstrate the possibility of producing clean energy using the same process used by the sun and stars. To learn more, watch the demonstration videos of the project and of the nuclear reactor's characteristics.


ASG has been collaborating for many years with CERN in Geneva. The magnets supplied for the LHC tunnel, as well as for the CMS and ATLAS detectors, contributed to the discovery of the Higgs Boson.


ASG's know-how, along with Columbus Superconductors' magnesium diboride (MgB2) cable, has allowed us to create an open ("anti-claustrophobia") and cryogen-free MRI system, the only one of its kind in the world. MrOpen is entirely designed and developed in house and is already in use in diagnostic centers in the USA, Canada and UK.


Superconducting technology is bringing innovation also to energy storage systems and is helping to make grids safer, protecting them from blackout risks. Discover the innovations and projects ASG is developing for SMES (Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage) and SFCL (Superconducting Fault Current Limiter) systems.


ASG Superconductors - whose activities span from superconductivity to innovative materials research to magnet technology - is part of the high-tech supply chain owned by the Malacalza family. The chain includes Paramed, which has developed an "open" MRI system using magnets of a unique design, and Columbus Superconductors, which in turn produces an innovative "high temperature" superconducting cable in magnesium diboride (MgB2).
