Yokouchi Seisakusho Co., Ltd.
We have a track record in 3D wood processing that realizes the designer’s image.
We manufacture and sell wood processing products and resin prototype models. We have established 3D wood processing technology in the field of wood processing products. This technology makes it possible to manufacture precise, complicated shapes exactly as imagined by the planners and designers, which had been difficult with manual wood processing. This is done by using 3D CAD/CAM. We can apply this technology to manufacture products such as display articles, acoustic systems and equipment, jigs for packaging, and made-to-order furniture. Our customers include shops, clinics, libraries, art museums, halls, and public facilities that value the warmth of wood. We have a track record of delivering resin prototype models to major home electronics appliance manufacturers and IT equipment manufacturers.
[Company strength] Our company has a number of advantages. (1) We can assemble products with 3D wood processing. (2) We can make optimal proposals for NC wood processing. (3) We can handle 3D processing of small articles with high dimensional accuracy (about 0.2 mm). (4) We can conduct wood processing of large articles. (5) We have arranged an integrated system covering from planning and design to trial manufacturing and mass production. (6) We have the ability to provide support even if there is no available data. (7) We can also handle small lot production. (8) We are located in the Tokyo metropolitan area. (9) We can make use of the skills of other industries, such as sheet metal. (10) We can provide quick deliveries by applying our integrated system for processing, coating, and assembly. [Business description] We apply processing such as our 3D wood processing to manufacture products including display articles, acoustic systems and equipment, jigs for packaging, and made-to-order furniture. Our customers include shops, clinics, libraries, art museums, halls, and public facilities that value the warmth of wood. We receive orders from major home electronics appliance manufacturers, IT equipment manufacturers, and so on. We make use of equipment such as machining centers to conduct processing from fabricating display articles as resin products and designing resin prototypes to manufacturing and assembly. [Industry] Resin prototype model manufacturing; wood processing [Strength of products/technologies] We have strengths in 3D wood processing technology. We can make an expert selection from both Japanese wood and wood from overseas (more than 20 kinds), so we can make wood selection proposals according to your application. We can conduct optimal planning of wood processing steps and make an optimal selection of jigs and tools. We can apply CAD data to conduct wood processing with a curve profile within a maximum error of 0.2 mm, which cannot be achieved by our competitors. (The accuracy of other companies is 1 mm to 2 mm.) Wood processing cannot be done using a 3D printer, and high-precision curve profile processing in particular is extremely difficult. [Representative's message] We have refined our technology for making resin prototypes and wood processing. Cheap processing in China has taken possession of the resin processing market, but we maintain differentiation in the field of 3D wood processing with complicated curve profiles. We are receiving an increasing number of orders via our website from customers who rely on our 3D wood processing technology. We will advance expansion of our markets in Japan and abroad by making full use of our 3D wood processing technology. We hope to advance our reception of orders for wood processing products with a character and warmth that are not present in metals, little environmental load, and high designability. These activities are supported by the Kanagawa Credit Union. We will do our best to expand overseas sales by making use of partnerships with outside organizations. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] Three staff members in the sales department, including our representative director, handle technical proposals according to customer requests for market cultivation and overseas expansion. We have a fluent Chinese-speaker in our manufacturing department, so we can handle technical consultations on subjects related to the ever-growing Chinese market. We have arranged a flexible corporate system for market cultivation that enables quick decision making. We will actively seek partnerships with outside organizations in cases where we have insufficient resources for overseas expansion. [Market share/Ranking] We cannot calculate our precise market share related to our processing technology, but we can note a number of statistics. Total shipments of major wooden furniture amounted to 665,779 million yen in 2013 (“Statistical Charts on Industry: Reported by Items,” 2013 edition). The total for shipments in industrial model manufacturing was 123,412 million yen in the same year (“Statistical Charts on Industry: Reported by Industry,” 2013 edition). [Awards and media coverage] [Media] We were introduced on NHK and TV Tokyo programs about 25 years ago as an excellent town factory. [Authorization/Certification] We have no special certificates or licenses as a company, but two of our staff members are qualified supervisory machine operators for wood processing. [Joint research and development] We possess one design registration for our Marker Collection product (a collection case exclusively used for golf markers, Japanese Design Registration No. 8232025). [Main Clients / Business History (domestic)] Toshiba (resin and wood prototypes); Sony (wood processing: speaker cabinet prototypes); Foster Electric (wood processing: speaker cabinet prototypes); Hirose Electric (resin prototypes); Mitsubishi Precision (resin and wood processing: parts for various simulators); Toto (wood processing prototypes); and NHK (wood processing: acoustic system cabinets). [Main Clients / Business History (overseas)] We have a track record of having delivered made-to-order products to the Singapore factory of an acoustic system company in the past.
