Pronics Co., Ltd.

We offer dimension measurement consignment services for plastic formed products and other products.

We have conducted consignment measurement for a total of over 1,700 companies, universities, and research institutes. Our company has 40 women working as measurers. Each measurer is in charge of one company and provides attentive support from quotation to delivery. Our measuring equipment includes machines for CNC coordinate measurement and CNC image measurement as well as vernier calipers and micrometers. We measure dimensions in the parts manufacturing process to verify that molds have been created as designed. This dimension measurement is an important process to support the quality of Monozukuri craftsmanship. This process is greatly affected by an increase or decrease in production output, so cost optimization is difficult. Outsourcing measurement work is particularly advantageous for fabless manufacturers as well as development and prototyping manufacturers.

[Company strength]
We have conducted consignment measurement for a total of over 1,00 companies, universities, and research institutes. Our measurement service customers have issues including the high cost of preparing a lineup of necessary measuring equipment, and a lack of know-how for training measurers. Their issues also include measurement exceeding the capacity in the on-season only, and the need to save labor costs in the off-season. We have a system that is capable of quickly solving these issues. Our inspection and measurement department has a staff of 40 measurers, all of whom are women. The percentage of repeat customers is over 90% among the 50 top companies in terms of sales. This is because of the attentive specification checking and service provided by our measurers, and also their reliable measurement quality. The number of new customers is also as many as 5 per month.

[Business description]
Our mainline business is dimension measurement consignment services for plastic formed products and pressed parts. We measure dimensions before starting mass production in the process of manufacturing part molds for automotive parts and home electronics appliances. This is done to verify that molds have been created as designed. We also measure dimensions at mold acceptance, modification, addition, update, and trial manufacturing and compile the results into a quality report. We possess coordinate measuring equipment such as CNC coordinate measuring machines, CNC image measuring machines, measuring microscopes with data processing systems, and surface roughness shape measuring machines. Our extensive lineup of equipment also includes tools such as vernier calipers and micrometers.

Manufacturing (inspection and measurement data services, mold manufacturing, trial and production forming)

[Strength of products/technologies]
Measurement is an important process supporting the quality of Monozukuri craftsmanship. However, this process often bears the brunt of cutbacks as work not directly contributing to production. The volume of measurement work greatly depends on the production output, so it is difficult to balance fixed costs and variable costs and to optimize costs. There are growing expectations for Japanese manufacturing companies to make Japan into a developing and prototyping manufacturer rather than a factory. Fabless companies, top manufacturers in global niche industries, and development and prototyping manufacturers can optimize costs in this context by outsourcing measurement work instead of making it in-house work.

[Representative's message]
Our company started overseas expansion from 2002 when the Internet Bubble collapsed after the Year 2000 (Y2K) issue. We opened offices in Vietnam and Shanghai at the same time. We established PRONICS VIETNAM in 2005, and now this site is our main factory. We started up Shanghai Pronics Measurement Co., Ltd. (measuring company) in 2004, and Shanghai Pronics Modeling Co., Ltd. (molding and forming company) in 2005. Dalian Pronics Precision Mold Factory (measurement, molding, forming) opened in 2006. We also started up VTECH VN (assembling factory) in 2010 and established PRONICS THAI in 2013. We are now promoting overseas business expansion, and will continue to promote it aggressively.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our company always has about 5 employees in the inspection and measurement department who are in charge of support for new customers. Engineers specialized in measurement support customers according to their needs for coordinate measuring machines, image measuring machines, measuring microscopes, and so on. We communicate with overseas companies only through email. We take advantage of our locations in China, Vietnam, and Thailand to have our sales staff outside the department take care of translations. We are ready to provide support in English and Chinese.
