Maruchu Kigata Seisakusho Co., Ltd.

We manufacture wooden patterns and molding articles by hand and NC machines.

We mainly manufacture wooden patterns for casting, trial manufacture of the patterns for the products by using 3D data, processing of molding articles and processing of patterns other than the casting products. Materials used are wood, styrene foam and chemical wood, etc. We manufacture a wide variety of patterns for machine tools, forming machines, compressors, transmission gears, construction machines and other industrial machines. We manufacture high-quality wooden patterns in accordance with the casting factory where the patterns are used. We excel at manufacturing large to medium-size wooden patterns by making use of the scale of the factory, facility and the skill of our engineers. We deal with two types of manufacturing: handmade and NC processing using 3D data. Another one of our strengths is that we can process quickly by using three sets of large-scale NC processors.

[Company strength]
Since our foundation in 1969, we have been manufacturing wooden patterns for casting.
We respond to requests from our clients with our 5 wood-pattern engineers and 3 CADCAM/NC engineers. In 2011 our company was selected as “Sainokuni (Saitama Prefecture) Factory” and the “Skill Promotion Model Office in Kawaguchi City” for our performance so far. In order to maintain our technological strength, we also train young engineers and pass the technology on to them.


[Business description]
We mainly manufacture wooden patterns for casting (wooden pattern, styrene foam pattern, resin pattern and urethane pattern). Additionally we also conduct trial manufacturing of products by using 3D data, processing of modeling items and processing of patterns other than the forging products. The materials to be used are wood, styrene foam and chemical wood, etc. We manufacture a wide variety of patterns for machine tools, forming machines, compressors, transmission gears, construction machines and other industrial machines. We constantly strive to manufacture the highest quality wooden patterns which are easy to use, in accordance with the casting factory where the patterns are used.

[Industry]
Manufacturing of wooden patterns for casting

[Strength of products/technologies]
We are good at manufacturing large to medium-size wooden patterns by making use of the scale of the factory, facility and the skill of our engineers. Our manufacturing is done using 2 methods: traditional hand crafting and NC processing using 3D data. We can respond efficiently to various sizes and shapes by using either method individually or in unison. Another one of our strengths is that we can process quickly by using our three large-scale NC processors. Manufacturing the handmade wooden patterns by craftsman requires the technology and knowledge gained through experience. The skills are necessary for manufacturing light-weight, high-strength wooden patterns with little deviation, by utilizing the grain and other properties of the selected wood.

[Representative's message]
We have long been manufacturing wooden patterns for casting and accumulating know-how in the Monozukuri City of Kawaguchi. We also focus on the training of young engineers in these days.  We can create high-quality wooden patterns through good team work between the young staff and skilled craftsmen. We would like to support many customers through our technological strength.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our president carries out sales activities directly. We listen to the needs of the customers carefully, and respond appropriately. We make suggestions and proposals to the customers as necessary for the manufacture and design of the casting parts.
