Yasuhisa Kouki Bio Mechanics Co., Ltd.
We provide prototyping and development services, and give shape to what had not existed in the world.
We prototype and develop precision equipment, medical and welfare equipment, and general industrial equipment under an integrated system from design to production. We specialize in a niche field and feature the capability to produce articles from scratch by combining multiple elements from various angles. Prototype development: We have made use of our 40 years of experience and know-how to develop collapsible color cones and writing implements for the visually impaired. Our prototype development abilities are highly appreciated, and particularly for artificial hearts. This is why we were selected by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry as one of Japan’s Seven Startups at the World's Top Level.
[Company strength] Our company elaborates designs by making use of the know-how and experience we have accumulated to date, and we entrust part machining to over 50 partner companies in Ota Ward. We assemble manufactured parts in-house to complete assembled products. We flexibly satisfy customer requests for performance, pricing, and delivery date by making use of a cross-contracting network. [Business description] We accept prototyping and development orders from customers (research groups of universities and companies) and design and manufacture products under an integrated system. Our products include precision equipment, medical and welfare equipment, and general industrial equipment. We handle metal, resin, rubber, and wood materials. The former president established our company in 1969 and we have been engaged in trial manufacturing of artificial hearts ever since. [Industry] Machine design, precision machine part processing, and jig manufacturing [Strength of products/technologies] We specialize in a niche field and design and manufacture trial products with added value. We visited the local prefectural police for a different matter, and they said the safety cones they had been using could not fit into the trunks of police cars. They said that collapsible cones would be handy. This was the source of the idea for our Patacone product, which we commercialized in a joint development project. We have sold more than 40,000 pieces. [Representative's message] It is a feature of our company that we can give shape to what had not existed before (even overseas) by combining various elements from various angles. Our tactile drawing pen has no equivalent even outside Japan, and attracts people at exhibitions and demonstrations. However, the unit price is as high as about 100,000 yen. We are now manufacturing molds for mass production with a subsidy from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, which will be completed soon. We will also expand sales of a low-priced version to the overseas market. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] We have over fifty partner companies, and our design and arrangement staff know their particular strengths in machining. We can manufacture products with various kinds of materials, accuracy, and shapes by assigning the right people to the right positions. We can make use of this network to develop products with added value and expand our business to overseas markets. [Market share/Ranking] Our company has received orders from over 30 universities in Japan since our establishment in 1969.
