Cutting products

The purpose of cutting is to form metal materials into a shape, dimensions, and surface conditions suitable for a specific purpose by using a drill, miller, or other tools. The typical cutting technologies are machining, fusing, and erosion processing. Lathes, mills, drills, grinders, and cutters are used for machining. Fusing includes cutting using lasers, gas welding torches, or plasma. Erosion processing is a technique using water jets or electrical discharge. In machining, cutting tools are used with machine tools, such as drills, bites, mills, end mills, reamers, taps, or hobs. A drill is used with a drill press, a bite is used with a lathe or shaper, and a mill is used with a miller. Machining is widely used in various fields as one of the technologies supporting Monozukuri (Manufacturing) craftsmanship.

CFRTP (thermoplastic carbon fiber compound material) pressing machines

RISOH PRECISION Co., Ltd.
From the metal pressing industry

Precision machine processing parts

Koda Manufacturing Co., Ltd.
Our company received requests from major machine parts maker A and semiconductor manufacturing equipment maker B requiring small precision parts within a few days. This was needed in order to maintain the quality and precision (such as geometrical tolerance) of the final product. We delivered these products and they were favorably received. These requirements were tough: tolerances in roundness, parallelism, concentricity, and straightness were to be less than 0.01. We were able to achieve these tolerances by reviewing the procedures in the machining process and utilizing our accumulated know-how in machining technology.

CFRTP (thermoplastic carbon fiber compound material) pressing machines

RISOH PRECISION Co., Ltd.
We provide machines that enable small-lot, low-cost sample molding for customers who wish to make the best use of the characteristics of CFRP in their products. These characteristics include weight reduction and strengthening.

Precision machine processing parts

Koda Manufacturing Co., Ltd.
We have all the necessary measuring instruments for measuring tolerances for customers with severe geometrical tolerance requirements in roundness, cylindricity, straightness, and parallelism. We also have combined machines and an accumulation of machining technology know-how. We can inspect and measure products immediately following production and give feedback to the customer. We can provide high quality and short delivery periods to customers with severe geometrical tolerance requirements. These have excellent properties such as corrosion resistance and durability like the high-purity stainless steels, titanium, Inconel, and Hastelloy that are used in pharmaceutical manufacturing machines and semiconductor manufacturing machines. However, these are extremely hard to machine. We can machine these difficult-to-machine materials with high accuracy. This will be useful in the aerospace industry.

CFRP machiningRISOH PRECISION Co., Ltd.

We process CFRP products with accuracy equivalent to metals.

CFRP is a difficult-to-machine material. Burrs and separation, etc., may occur with CFRP during machining. The cutting tools may be significantly worn down by the carbon fibers, resulting in an extremely short tool operating life.
To solve this problem we select the cutting conditions and blades from the material design stage. We have accumulated technology for many years to prevent problems during machining.
This is why we can process CFRP with accuracy equivalent to metals.
