Tatsumi Kasei Co., Ltd.
Our integrated production system covers all processes from planning to manufacturing of the final product.
We are engaged in the planning, design and machining of plastic products, and dry carbon molding. To become a ‘proposal-based company,’ we introduced a series of in-house facilities to handle all processes from prototype fabrication to die design, manufacturing, molding, and assembly. Our integrated production system has led to a reduction not only in lead time and cost, but also in the risk of information leakage. We also conduct hot melt molding – a special technology where the mount boards are molded at low pressure and low temperature – and high-speed, mass-production molding of dry carbon. We are also able to apply new technologies to solve any issues that may arise.
[Company strength] To become a proposal-based company, we introduced a series of facilities for conducting all manufacturing processes in-house, including prototype fabrication, die design, manufacturing, molding, and assembly. We believe that this integrated production system is critical for achieving high-speed, low-cost production while preventing information leakage. Our molding machines handle 10 to 550 tons in mass, and machining is conducted using NC lathes and milling machines. In addition to machining, we perform secondary processing using ultrasonic welding, laser welding, and UV-curable urethane. We also make proposals that use new technologies for solving customers’ problems. [Business description] [Industry/Type of Business] Planning, design and mockup of plastic products; design and manufacturing of dies; injection molding, post processing and assembly [Main Products] Gas meter parts; water meter parts; housing parts; plastic parts for machinery; dry carbon products; hot melt molding; racing simulator [Main Facilities] Machining tools for die production; injection molding machines; machining tools for resin processing; UV-curable foam gasket devices; laser welding machines Our main line of business is general plastic molding, which includes support for product design, prototype fabrication and die design, and manufacturing and mass production of moldings and assemblies. [Industry] Plastic products manufacturer [Strength of products/technologies] We use our original technologies to conduct hot melt molding (the mount board is molded at low pressure and low temperature), as well as high-speed, mass-production molding of dry carbon. Dry carbon products used to be made by hand by skilled technicians, which made it rather expensive. Our high-speed dry carbon molding stabilized the quality, and lowered the cost of mass production. For super engineering plastics that excel in heat and chemical resistance, we can mass produce PI (polyimide) and PEEK (polyether ether ketone) products with high precision. [Representative's message] The dry carbon market is expected to grow dramatically. We will continue to work hard based on the following principles: 1) Respond to the customers’ needs, and commit ourselves to making quality products. 2) Develop rewarding policies that inspire our employees and fulfill their expectations. 3) Develop and grow the company so that we can contribute to the community. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] The dry carbon market is expected to grow dramatically. We will continue to work hard based on the following principles: 1) Respond to the customers’ needs, and commit ourselves to making quality products. 2) Develop rewarding policies that inspire our employees and fulfill their expectations. 3) Develop and grow the company so that we can contribute to the community. [Market share/Ranking] Gas meters, one of our main products, use UVFG technology (UV-curable foam gaskets), and we hold 30% of the domestic market. High-speed dry carbon molding is our original technology. The TSK racing simulator is also our original product. Each lot is customized to the customer’s needs, and manufactured on a build-to-order basis. The high-quality dry carbon products give us a comparative advantage. [Awards and media coverage] [Awards] Aichi Prefectural Governor’s Award as an excellent SME that succeeded in business rationalization (January 2002); employees (trade skills test commissioners) are awarded for long-time service by the Aichi Prefectural Vocational Ability Development Association (November 2013); others [Media] Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun (mentioned dry carbon on January 29, 2015); Chubu Keizai Shimbun (mentioned dry carbon on September 18, 2015); Wellness Valley (introduced as a manufacturer in the region by the Osaka City Wellness Valley Promotion Council (brochure); bulletin issued by the Osaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry (on the topic of making the Osaka brand global); Matchfull OBU; member letter from the Central Japan Plastic Products Industry Association; others [Authorization/Certification] ISO 9001 (JQA-QM6013); Special Class, First Class, Second Class Molding Technician (individual employees’ certification) [Joint research and development] October 2009: Subsidy granted for the development of hot melt molding under the Manufacturing SME’s Product Development Support Program. 2013–2015: Subsidy granted under the Manufacturing SME’s/SME’s Trial Manufacturing Support Program.
