Ogawa Industry Co., LTD.

Our company is accelerating overseas expansion utilizing our strengths in thick-plate precision punching and machining products with irregular shapes.

Our company’s major advantages are: 
Manufacturing suspension, steering and other automobile parts, cold heading building products such as high nuts and top inserts, and pressed products. 
Precise shearing of thick plates using a unique fine pressing method developed by our company.
Developing advanced machining methods by combining cold heading and pressing methods.
Long-length penetration machining using a parts former.

Sales Pitch

We pursue high-precision, highly difficult plastic forming
Our company possesses fine pressing and plate forging techniques.
Fine pressing is our proprietary thick-plate precision shearing technique, which has a track record of processing 25-mm-thick plates.
The punched surface has high accuracy and high surface roughness accuracy, so this is an advantageous machining method for mechanical parts that require functionality on punched surfaces.
It is used mainly for transmission mechanism parts.
Plate forging is a technique that progressively processes plate-formed products that used to require finishing work or were processed by multiple single-action processing.
It has excellent productivity and contributes to various VA and VE efforts.
We have two types of forging techniques: part former near-net shape processing and combined plate forging.
Our company has been using the part former processing technique for more than 30 years. We particularly excel at processing long products with through holes and products with various shapes. 
Combined forging is a processing technique that combines a part former and a vertical forging press. It is used to carry out more complex and higher precision plastic forming by exceeding the constraints of a part former.
It is used mainly used for automobile seat mechanism parts and engine parts.
We are also actively working on developing plastic processing for SUS materials.
We also focus on developing techniques to perform resin insert molding on metals as an effort to reduce the weight of automobiles.

Other presentation

[Company strength]
Our company conducts high-value-added manufacturing by combining fine blanking (fine pressing) and cold heading (parts former) in complex processing. We use these technologies to proactively make VA proposals from the design phase in order to provide satisfying products to customers.
We also focus our efforts on improving our production sites and training. This is done through TPM activities (mandatory production assurance activities that aim to enhance the efficiency of the manufacturing system) and TQM activities. 

[Business description]
We manufacture and sell cold heading products and pressed products.
Automobile parts: Suspension and steering components, automatic transmission parts, seatbelt parts (pawls and gears), and so on.
Building parts: High nuts, top inserts, and so on. 

Metal product manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
The major advantages of our company are: 
Manufacturing of suspension and steering as well as other automobile parts, cold heading building products such as high nuts and top inserts, and pressed products. 
Precise thick-plate shearing using a unique fine pressing method that was developed by our company.
Advanced machining methods in which the cold heading method and pressing method are combined.
Long-length penetration machining using a parts former. 
We now also engage in the development of progressive forging. We are trying to break down the limits of metal forming through technological innovation by developing new engineering methods and improving mold technology. 

[Representative's message]
Our company started out as a manufacturer of nuts for construction use, and then entered the automobile parts market.
In addition to our fine pressing technology, we are developing new engineering methods and unique composite processing to meet various customer needs.
Our customers recognize our abundant know-how and high technological development capabilities. As a result, our products are used in a wide range of fields.
Further globalization of parts procurement is expected in the near future, so we plan to actively promote overseas expansion. 

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We set up a local subsidiary in China (Foshan City, Guangdong Province) in 2012 to meet the needs of our overseas customers, and started production after securing orders.
We built a new plant near the headquarters plant in 2013. This was done to create an organization that can respond to the needs of major companies, such as cost-cutting and difficult-to-make products. 
For the domestic market we will focus on developing high-value-added, difficult technologies and molds. At the same time we will gather information aiming to set up new overseas sites. 

[Market share/Ranking]
Acquired approximately 17% of the domestic Japanese parking pawl market (2010).

[Awards and media coverage]
300 of Japan's Vibrant Monozukuri (Manufacturing) SMEs (2009); TPM Excellent Continuity Award (2011); TQM Quality Encouragement Award (2012); SME Excellent Technology/New Product Award (2013).  
[Media] Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun (April 17 and 22, 2013); Kinzoku Sangyo Shimbun (January 30, 2012, July 15, 2013, and so on).

Acquired ISO 9001 and 14001 certification (2000 and 2005, respectively).

[Joint research and development]
We engaged in discussions with Osaka Prefecture University about joint research, but it did not materialize. We have mostly conducted independent development and VA proposals.
