Metal Links Co., Ltd.

We offer products for the digital alignment of forging presses.

Our company manufactures and sells alignment devices for punches, dies, and chucks. Our product digitizes the alignment of pressing parts in mold arrangement for visualization on a screen to assist in easy working. This alignment used to depend on experience and intuition. Conventional load detection devices for forging presses aim to prevent the spread of damage at a punch break or any other problem. However, our product aims to prevent such problems themselves. Our alignment device for forging press dies, fingers, and chucks is a unique product that is not available from other companies. We will actively approach overseas companies who prioritize numeric values rather than experience and intuition.

[Company strength]
Our representative has been engaged in mold design and other work related to forging presses for almost 30 years. He is very familiar with mold technologies, pressing machine structures, processing layout design, on-site work, and processing dynamics. This is why we can understand issues presented by customers and correctly reflect them in our in-house development programs. We can give advice about analyzing output to ascertain machine abrasion and mold problems.

[Business description]
Our company specializes in alignment devices for horizontal formers based on cold forging, but we aim to develop, manufacture, and sell alignment devices for various forging presses. Our alignment device digitizes the alignment of punches, dies, and chucks in mold arrangement for visualization on a screen to assist in easy working. This alignment used to depend on experience and intuition.

[Industry]
Forging press alignment device manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
We are the only manufacturer of alignment devices for forging press punches, dies, and chucks. Our alignment device digitizes the alignment of press parts at mold arrangement for visualization on a screen to assist in easy working. This alignment used to depend on experience and intuition. Our device can be compared with a conventional forging press load detection device. A load detection device aims to prevent the spread of damage at a punch break or any other problem, but our alignment device aims to prevent such problems themselves. Our device optimizes products by alignment to reduce eccentricity. It reduces the load on tools to suppress damage and manufacture products without stopping the pressing machines.

[Representative's message]
Press forging determines product quality. However, I was dissatisfied because all processes from arrangement to completion depended on intuition and experience. This is because most of this work has dynamic factors (such as mechanical slack) and cannot be checked visually. We achieved our device after many trials and errors for visualizing press working. Our device exhibits its power in the alignment of complicated multi-process presses and the analysis of processing. This is because dynamic factors can be checked on its screen. We use demonstration devices to cultivate markets so that potential customers can feel the improvement in work efficiency by using this product. We expect the same demand outside Japan as well, wherever intuition and experience are not trusted.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We will intensify our efforts so that major companies will understand our products. We will take demonstration and simulation machines with us wherever possible for product presentations. This will promote customer understanding and enable the active exchange of opinions.

[Market share/Ranking]
We are the only manufacturer of alignment devices for forging press punches, dies, and chucks.
