We have developed a film-deposited roll that enables mirror finishing to a surface roughness of at most Ry 0.1.

Our company manufactures various rolls and papermaking blades for industrial machines. We also design and create surface treatment plants. We possess high-level technologies for coating, polishing, and surface treatment. We have development experience in coating with DLC, which is the second-hardest substance after diamond. Our film deposition rolls used for optical film manufacturing retain mirror finishing properties of at most Ry 0.1 in surface roughness. They make it possible to eliminate flaws up to 0.05, which is the limit level for visual inspection.

[Company strength]
We possess plating, thermal spraying, fluororesin, and DLC coating technologies, as well as super-mirror, ultra-high-accuracy, and hot polishing technologies. We also possess blasting and other special treatment technologies and a wealth of surface treatment technologies combined from them. We also possess machining technologies using the latest NC lathe and 5-face machining center. We support a wide variety of needs. We have even provided the largest roll manufacturing equipment in Japan and copper electroforming and plating equipment for rocket combustion chambers. We are experienced in plating and electrolytically polishing parts for nuclear power stations, Shinkansen bullet train rolling stock, and superconducting and normal conducting accelerators.

[Business description]
Our company manufactures various rolls and papermaking blades for major domestic Japanese manufacturers of films, batteries, paper, and iron as well as printing companies. Our products include molds for iron-making companies. We cover the whole manufacturing process from design and machining to after-sale maintenance. We also design and produce surface treatment plants and provide surface treatment technologies. We developed a new product coated with DLC, which is the second-hardest substance after diamond (product name: Tough Carbon Hv 5000). We also developed a product coated with a substance having metal-level conductivity (product name: Tough Conductor Hv 4000). Both have been applied to precision electronic parts.

Plating and other surface treatment, and machining

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our film deposition rolls used for optical film manufacturing have mirror properties of at most Ry 0.1 in surface roughness. They make it possible to eliminate flaws up to about 0.05, which is the limit level for visual inspection. We are the only manufacturer capable of manufacturing Japan's largest film deposition rolls, which are as large as over 48 square meters, and mirror-finishing them with no flaws. Our molds for continuous casting equipment for iron manufacturers withstand the pouring of 1,500ºC or hotter molten steel over 3,000 times. We can manufacture pressed rolls for electrodes of rechargeable batteries and coater rolls for optical films with deflection accuracy as high as 1 micron or less.

[Representative's message]
We have been dedicated to satisfying customer needs since our foundation. We have received a degree of appreciation for high quality and functionality regarding our rolls for various industries and molds for continuous casting. This is probably because we quickly satisfy customer needs, including technology, manufacturing, and quality assurance. We will continue to dare to take on the challenge of new industrial categories and products by utilizing these advantages of our company.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We hold a meeting organized by the president once a month to determine our activities for new customer needs. All our technical, manufacturing, and sales staff attend this meeting, which enables quick, integrated activities from R&D to manufacturing. Our company has an in-house ISO-compliant quality assurance system as well as various training systems for new employee training, in-house certification, and acquisition of official certificates. Our first overseas plating factory will be completed in this fiscal year.

[Market share/Ranking]
Large film-deposited rolls for optical films: 100% (specific type), 50% (TAC, PET, etc.).
Continuous casting molds for slabs: 50% in Japan, 5% abroad.
Plated blades for papermaking: 70% in Japan.
