Irradiation test of metallic fuel at fast test reactor JOYO is planned. By using techniques of casting, fabrication, analysis and inspection, metallic fuel elements were made for the first time in Japan. In this paper, fabrication technique of metallic fuel elements is reported. After filling up thermal bond (Na), a reflector element, a thermal shelter element and a fuel slug, the upper plug was welded. Sodium bonding treatment was carried out by vibrating the fuel element under heating. By inspection, it was confirmed that the specifications were satisfied.
