Kikusui Forgeing Co., Ltd.

We are extending our business of hot-forged products and machined products to various fields. 

We are a part manufacturer established in 1950. We mainly manufacture products for motorbikes and cars, construction machines, agricultural machines, and industrial machines by hot forging and machining. We have many domestic Japanese customers such as Daikin, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Toku Pneumatic Tool Mfg., Yasukawa Electric, and Yanmar. We have done business outside Japan with companies from the United States and Taiwan. We also handle hot forging of special steels and other difficult-to-process materials such as magnesium and titanium alloys. We even meet various customer needs by machining rock drills, steel rolls, and other articles as large as up to five tons in weight.

[Company strength]
Our company has been accumulating experience through a corporate history of 65 years. We also possess four hammer lines (0.5 to 3 tons) and four press lines (400 to 1,600 tons) to handle a wide range of products. We are highly appreciated as a manufacturer with user convenience. This is because we have 12 workers who hold forging qualifications, including two certified by Tottori Prefecture as master forgers. We are devoted to acquiring new customers and extending our sales channels for new items by making use of our company’s advantages. These include delivering 25% of forged products after completing processing up to machining, and also quick turnaround because 100% of the molds are manufactured within the company.

These are mainly for motorbikes and cars, construction machines, agricultural machines, and industrial machines, and are sold to customers throughout an area from the northern Kanto region to Kyushu. We also handle hot forging of special steels and other difficult-to-process materials such as magnesium and titanium alloys. We supply forged products made of difficult-to-process materials for optical equipment and medical instruments. We offer machining work in downstream processing for in-house hot-forged products, as well as rock drills, steel rolls, and other articles as large as up to five tons in weight.

[Industry]
Forging and machining

[Strength of products/technologies]
Small to large products made of difficult-to-process articles: We handle products weighing from 100 g to 30 kg, even made of difficult-to-process materials such as magnesium and titanium alloys.
Various shapes and kinds: We treat more than 1,300 kinds of products from precision articles having a small draft angle to large ones with complicated shapes.
Product design to completion: We have an integrated production system from product and mold design using 3D CAD/CAM (SPACE-E = CATIA V5 compatible) to creation, forging, thermal treatment, and machining.
Wide range of lots from small to large: We support high-mix low-volume production (50,000 to 50 pieces per lot).
