Kusunoki Seikou Co., Ltd.
Manufacturer of Japan’s top-class proposal-based die holders
We design and manufacture made-to-order die holders, with our main focus on die holders for hot forging presses. The hard plate changer (HPC) die holder that we developed dramatically reduces the time and labor required to change the dies and improves safety by firmly securing the dies while maintaining precise concentricity. We have also contributed to the reliable supply of forged products with our involvement in peripheral die changing equipment and material feeders. Our products are used by automakers and forging press manufacturers, and are increasingly adopted in overseas markets in response to the need for labor reduction.
[Company strength] Having our parent company as a customer, we are able to actively collect information and exchange ideas on forging technology to supplement our inventory of technology and apply it in our designs. Customers request a truly wide range of die holders. While technology is obviously important, we believe communication with customers is the most critical aspect of producing die holders that satisfy customers. Because we also develop and design die holders, our sales representatives and design engineers work side by side with the customer to provide the optimal equipment. [Business description] 1. We develop, design, produce, upgrade, overhaul, and weld and repair broken parts of die holders and die sets for various forging presses. 2. We endeavor to maintain and deliver toughness and precision, using world-leading SKT4 steel for the structural materials of die holders for hot forging for automation and labor-saving equipment (material feeders, conveyors, transportation dollies, inverting equipment). In 1982, we developed a single die setting method by improving a compact die using the block building method, from the uniform structure seen in conventional cast steel, and combining it with a die conveyor. [Industry] Metal die manufacturing [Strength of products/technologies] The hard plate changer (HPC) die holder that we developed is a system that dramatically reduces the time, labor, workforce, and floor space required to change dies and improves safety by firmly securing the dies while maintaining precise concentricity in forging presses. Our HPC systems are in place in over 100 production lines in Japan and abroad. We have also contributed to the reliable supply of forged products with our involvement in peripheral die changing equipment, material feeders, and other automated conveyor equipment. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] Our three-member sales division serves as a prompt and attentive contact point in Japan. We have constructed an in-house system, with a development sales team member as our contact point, for handling overseas business. We work in partnership with trading firms to ascertain customer needs and expand our made-to-order sales business. [Market share/Ranking] Kusunoki is almost synonymous with die holders for hot forging presses, which demonstrates how well known we are in the forging industry. As the only designer and manufacturer of made-to-order die holders in Japan, we are the leader in terms of market share and in terms of standard of quality, short turnaround, and technology. [Awards and media coverage] [Awards] Certified Aichi Brand company (2010) Outstanding (Special) Contribution Award from the Confederation of the Chinese Metalforming Industry [Media] “Chubu Corporation Wins with This,” Nihon Keizai Shimbun; “Succession as Lifework,” Mid-Japan Economist; “Businessperson,” THE 21; “Our Company at the Forefront of Metal Material Technology,” Sokeizai [Authorization/Certification] ISO 9001 [Joint research and development] We routinely receive inquiries from customers to develop or improve die holders for the reliable supply of forged products. [Main Clients / Business History (overseas)] We have made both direct and indirect deliveries to local forging companies in China, Taiwan, South Korea, India, Thailand, and the United States.
