Fine Parts Co., Ltd.

We offer made-to-order contact probes that are finer than hair. 

Our company is a precision metal spring manufacturer and distributer. We manufacture springs on a made-to-order basis, with a focus on articles used in contact probes, ballpoint pen tips, and connectors. We specialize in making small springs with an outer diameter of 1.0 mm or less. Our smallest spring to date has an outer diameter of 0.06 mm. Our contact probe springs are widely used in the domestic Japanese market. Transactions are also increasing in other countries, and especially in Taiwan, which is known as a global production center for semiconductors. We created a unique wire working method with a multi-function coiling machine (for products like ballpoint pen tip springs). We received the Excellence Award at the 7th Japan Innovator’s Award 2008.

[Company strength]
Our company has the technology to manufacture the world’s smallest springs, with an outer diameter of 0.06 mm, which is finer than hair. We also possess a wealth of production equipment, including 100 units of coiling machine and plating equipment. Our on-site inspection equipment includes spring testers, spring durability testers, image measuring instruments, and X-ray fluorescent analysis thickness meters. These are sufficient for providing high-quality high-tech products in a short time. We also offer a wide variety of wire working services with the latest multi-function coiling machines and forming machines.

[Business description]
Our company is a precision metal spring manufacturer and distributer. We manufacture springs on a made-to-order basis, with a focus on articles used in contact probes, ballpoint pen tips, and connectors. We specialize in small springs with an outer diameter of 1.0 mm or less as our main products. The smallest spring we have ever made, which is also the world’s smallest, has an outer diameter of 0.06 mm. Our company is a world-class manufacturer in the field of ultra-precision springs. Our contact probe springs are widely used in the domestic Japanese market. Transactions are also increasing in other countries, and especially in Taiwan, which is known as a global production center for semiconductors. 

[Industry]
Precision metal spring manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our springs with an outer diameter of 0.06 mm are the smallest in the world, and finer than hair. No other company can mass-produce them. We are also developing springs with an even smaller outer diameter. Plating is available in-house, so we can make attractive offers in terms of lead time and, of course, cost. We have created unprecedented wire working methods with multi-function coiling machines (for products like ballpoint pen tip springs). We create new things by applying our extensive know-how and the world’s best technologies.
 


[Representative's message]
Our company manufactures 500 million springs every year, mostly for the semiconductor industry. Our products are procured directly and indirectly, and used all around the world, but there are areas of demand we have not reached, especially around Taiwan. We have the technology to create the finest springs in the world, and these springs must be necessary for many things. We believe that it is our mission to deliver our technology to users no matter where they are. Preparation is over, and we are ready. We hope to do business directly with everyone regardless of borders. 

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our overseas expansion efforts will focus on Taiwan as it is the world’s semiconductor production center. We have already hired Taiwanese sales representatives to support our existing customers, acquire new customers, and participate in SEMICON Taiwan. Our local sales representatives are fluent in Chinese as well as English, and are motivated for global expansion. Our domestic Japanese employees are also taking English lessons to get ready to target the world market as a team.



[Market share/Ranking]
We have a 20% share of the market for contact probe springs, a 40% share for ballpoint pen tip springs, and a 5% share for connector springs (our company’s data).
