Sales Pitch

Working model
What is a working model?
A working model is a model for product design verification. It is used mainly for checking functions. Based on our abundant experience and technology, we can confidently meet such requests for processing mechanical parts and design covers of gears and pulleys in various shapes and materials with high accuracy.
Production of working models
<3D scan>
We provide integral services from scan data, prototyping and molding. 

<3D printer SLA (Stereolithography)>
We can make large prototype parts in one day.

We can handle a full range of resin and metal cutting.

<Simple mold>
We provide consistent services from simple molding to injection molding.

<Vacuum cast molding>
We recommend vacuum cast molding for inexpensive plastic parts.

<Lathe processing of gears>
We provide high-precision lathe machining for gears, pulleys, etc.

<Quality control and inspection work>
Quality control is an indispensable part of our services we provide for our customers.
Design model
What is a design model?
A design model, also called “design mock-up,” is a model for checking design. It requires a finish that does not allow any compromise in many aspects including surface design processing and decoration. Experience the high quality that we, a general prototype manufacturer, can achieve.

Other presentation

[Company strength]
Our company conducts quality management with 3D measuring machines at all our sites. We satisfy customers with our part system and quality. We do business with customers in a wide range of fields as a trial manufacturing company. We possess many techniques acquired from this business. Our corporate culture is to take on the challenge of something new with flexibility and adaptability. We support product development and trial manufacturing from the viewpoint of our customers.

[Business description]
Our company has 60 machining centers at our Ome head office and factory, Gotemba factory, and Vietnam factory. We mainly perform vacuum molding (urethane forming) using silicone molds, aluminum mold manufacturing, injection molding, and quality management using 3D measuring machines and image scanners at these three sites. We also have in-house coating and printing facilities. We actively propose VE by implementing speed plus reliability plus adaptability. Consult us for trial manufacturing and high-mix low-volume part production. We also offer consignment design services and develop experimental devices and prototypes.

General plastic processing, molding, and forming

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our company manufactures aluminum molds for development. We also use them for high-mix low-volume production because their service life is about 10,000 shots. We are expanding our integrated services of design, trial manufacturing, molding, and production for customers that have problems in small-lot production.

[Representative's message]
We believe that the purpose of a product is to improve convenience and enrich our life. An idea should emerge and be implemented for the birth of a product. Recently 3D printers and other technologies that are comparatively easy to implement are becoming a trend. We hope to make further contributions to customers as a source company of Monozukuri craftsmanship, including fusion with the latest technologies. There is much that our company can do, because we are deeply aware of the importance of principles and trial manufacturing for development.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our company has a production factory in Hanoi, Vietnam. We are thinking of gradually establishing an in-house system for future activities in Europe and the United States. We have no problems with our management system because about 80% of our sales are from transactions with major companies in Japan.
