A metal processing company handling more than 1,000 kinds of precision parts
We process more than 1,000 kinds of precision metals such as reduction gear parts, industrial machinery parts and printing/health equipment parts, focusing on key parts for machine tools. We possess more than 30 machines in our factory in Japan, including CNC lathes, machining centers, milling machines and grinders. We select where to produce parts according to whether the part is a complex-shaped, high-precision and hard-to-cut part or a simple-shaped functionality-focused part, thereby efficiently and flexibly providing high-mix and variable-quantity production. We now have a representative office in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, which deals with overseas procurement of economical simple-shaped parts.
[Company strength] We have supplied various industrial machine parts since our establishment, focusing on machine tool parts. Over the years, we have constantly modified the production system to adapt to environmental changes associated with facility rationalization, quality management, high-mix variable-quantity production and the like, and have accumulated technologies as product and technology strengths, thereby manufacturing products without compromise, which are our company’s strengths. [Business description] Established over 37 years ago, we process more than 1,000 kinds of precision metals such as reduction gear parts, transmission parts and industrial machinery parts, focusing on key parts for machine tools.

We opened a representative office in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in 2012 and thus started overseas procurement. We select where to produce parts according to requests for complex-shaped, high-precision and hard-to-cut parts, and simple-shaped functionality-focused parts, thereby flexibly meeting demand with economic, high-mix and variable-quantity production. [Industry] Metal products manufacturing [Strength of products/technologies] (1) High-precision processing and processing of three-dimensional complex-shaped products which require, in particular, 4 or more axis control, by introducing the latest facilities such as 5-axis MC ahead of other companies in the industry (2) Database of information on each production facility, tool and processing (including production history and failures), sharing the database throughout the company, and investigating ways of reducing setup man-hours and economic processing methods (3) Production management system for flexible high-mix variable-quantity production (4) Our strengths in products and technology are that we faithfully implement and verify product requirements by thorough quality management from the start, using high-precision measurement equipment, including three-dimensional measurement equipment such as air micrometers, pin gauges and ring gauges, management of all measurement equipment in a constant-temperature inspection room, and adherence to the ISO 9000 quality management system throughout the company. [Representative's message] Requirements are diversifying with market expansion and globalization. We analyze all requirements and ways to meet them. We receive requests for complex-shaped, high-precision and hard-to-cut material parts, as well as for simple-shaped functional parts, and pursue appropriate costs for both types. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] We opened a representative office in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in 2012, for overseas procurement of simple-shaped, economical parts. In addition, as we are licensed as an importer and exporter, we can perform reception (import), consignment processing, inspection of processed products (pass or fail decision) and shipment (export) of materials supplied from Japan. We can locally procure some materials. We can discuss specifications and requirements before processing, in Japanese. We are keen to assist consignment manufacturing companies with consulting such as on process management and quality management, using our interpreter. [Market share/Ranking] Details are unknown as there are no statistics on the industry, but we have a high market share for the processing of three-dimensional complex-shaped products (customer information).
