Umehara Model Co., Ltd.

We support trial manufacturing by offering processing such as plastic machining and vacuum casting.

Our company offers total support for trial manufacturing using plastic. Our strength in plastic machining involves machining nylon glass using resin-containing glass fibers (resin containing filler). We have achieved a processing method to minimize the influence of warpage. This method has been used for trial manufacturing of parts for automobiles, motors, and so on. We mainly use silicone rubber for molds in vacuum casting, and urethane or epoxy resin is used as a material for cast molding. We have applied this technology for trial manufacturing of automotive parts, office automation equipment parts, parts related to amusement devices, and so on.

[Company strength]
Our company has received many inquiries about machining nylon glass using resin-containing filler. Resin with high strength and heat resistance is prone to warping when it is machined. We apply our unique know-how to manufacture high-precision products (such as automotive parts and motor parts). We perform various kinds of resin processing including multi-surface shapes, complicated shapes, and products requiring high precision. We select machining or vacuum casting according to the kind of processing, material, cost, or delivery period. Our short delivery periods and response capabilities are highly regarded by our customers.

[Business description]
Our company applies the most advanced technology combined with the know-how we have been accumulating for 40 years to offer total support for trial manufacturing using plastic. We have introduced advanced technology in the form of sophisticated equipment including 3D CAD/CAM, high-speed machining centers, and 3D instruments. This enables us to manufacture high-precision products in a short period. We can apply the know-how we have been accumulating for 40 years to select a suitable processing method for a product. We have also established a method to shorten manufacturing times. We have been handing down our craftsmen’s technologies for engraving machines, general-purpose lathes, and so on to achieve these results.

Resin cutting

[Representative's message]
We have been performing plastic processing for nearly 40 years since our former president established our business with an engraving machine in 1975. We manufacture trial models including mock-ups of high-performance designs and working models focusing on functionality. This is based on our plastic machining know-how as well as the latest CAD and NC technologies. We aim to contribute to trial manufacturing and development in various fields by taking on orders for sets of molds for trial manufacturing, additional processing, sheet metal parts, and so on. We strive to more quickly provide our customers with high-quality products at lower costs.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our company has indirectly supported Monozukuri craftsmanship in Japan as a local pioneer regarding trial manufacturing of plastic parts. We will research needs in addition to improving our technology in order to develop new products. Our manufacturing and sales teams will cooperate to enhance our strengths as a company. We will cultivate new marketing channels overseas as well as in Japan according to the growth of our business.
