[Strength of products/technologies]
Sanko Hamono Co., Ltd. develops and manufactures various types of special cutting tools for industries including woodworking, resin fabrication and metalworking. These cutting tools are used in many manufacturing processes such as for building materials, transportation structures, industrial molds and sports goods. Furthermore, we challenge new industries such as aviation and medical fields as our new focused development. Many of new inquiries includes tool requests of new materials (carbon and glass composites). Basic issues includes burr-edge control, delamination, tool life enhancement, and we provide proposals depending on your budget. Special coating service is also available for anti-abrasion and for other issues.

Our company manufactures a wide variety of special cutting tools and industrial cutters, including articles for wood, resin, and metals. This allows us to get involved in the manufacturing processes of various industries such as construction materials, transportation equipment, dies, and sporting goods. We have been focused on cutters for the aircraft and medical device industries in recent years. Many customers ask us about how we deal with machining new, composite materials. There are some issues associated with CFRP composite material, aramid, and Kevlar composite material, such as how to prevent fluff, flaking and burrs, and the tool’s service life. We will suggest optimal solutions based on your budget and other considerations. We can also apply a special coating to our tools to resist wear and abrasion. 

[Representative's message]
Sanko Hamono Co., Ltd. recently focuses on development and research on cutting tools for CFRP composite materials, which are known as difficult-to-cut materials, and more inquiries are coming in. We actively participate in overseas exhibitions and are glad to accept inquiries from who are interested in our tool development. We have introduced new facilities, in 2015, such as a high-powered microscope and a high-speed camera that are necessary to analyze more complex behavior of cutting tools in order to speed up development of the latest cutting tools.  Also for production facility, the latest NCN forming grinder and aerolapping mirror polishing grinder have set up in order to meet the demand of cutting tools with higher accuracy.

We have been receiving an increasing number of inquiries about CFRP composite material, which is a difficult-to-machine material, so we are putting more resources into R&D efforts regarding this. These efforts have been paying off, and a visitor to our booth at an overseas exhibition asked us to develop products for them as a result. Reducing R&D cycle time is another focus in our company. We plan to introduce high-powered microscopes and high-speed cameras so that our tools are developed and delivered in the shortest possible time. We will also introduce new CNC molding and grinding machines and aero lap mirror surface polishing machines to prepare for needs related to higher-precision cutting tools.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Experienced staff will offer services on your request. We participate in overseas exhibitions such as Paris Airshow and Aeromart as we especially focus on CFRP drills and end mills development for aviation industry. Currently, we tie up with a language support service for English communications and deepen relationships with overseas clients. Utilizing consulting communication sheets for technical discussion, we offer same services for foreign market as for domestic clients. We will recruit in-house global sales contact in future in order to develop these services.

Our experienced staff respond to customer inquiries. We have been focused on special drill development for CFRP composite material in recent years, and this material is used in the aircraft industry. This is why we participate in Paris Air Show and other overseas exhibitions. We have no English-speaking staff in-house, but we have external staff who can handle inquiries in English, and they are quite familiar with our business. We try to have meetings with overseas companies in the same way that we do with our domestic Japanese customers.
