Kodama Corporation Co., Ltd.

We cut and machine parts with five-axis and multi-axis machines.

We are engaged in software development and production services for prototype models. Our main software focus is CAD/CAM. Our main focus in prototypes is industrial design models and working models in conjunction with CAD/CAM systems. Our clients include the IHI Corporation, Terumo Corporation, Sumitomo Riko, Oiles Corporation, and TBK. We have excellent fabrication technology, and we cut and machine automotive parts with five-axis and multi-axis machines. We handle aluminum, ADC, iron, and stainless steel, as well as increasingly in-demand GF/CF plastic components, allowing us to address all kinds of customers’ needs.


Other presentation

[Company strength]
Our prototyping division uses the TopSolid series of integrated 3D CAD/CAM systems, which realizes “end-to-end data,” and the latest machine tools to produce metal and plastic prototype models. Since opening the prototyping division in 2001, we have prototyped numerous precision parts and components for automotive parts, medical devices, digital cameras, audio equipment, home electronics, sports equipment, and many more. In 2009, we opened a manufacturing technology lab, where we started researching manufacturing technology to make full use of the capabilities of five-axis machines and multi-axis machines, based on our experience as a CAD/CAM vendor. Recently, we have been researching such topics as machining difficult‐to‐machine materials.

[Business description]
We develop and sell CAD/CAM software, and our primary business operations are selling CAD/CAM/CE and network systems, providing system construction, operation, and management services, providing training and support services for a variety of systems, and providing CAD/CAM consulting. We established a prototyping division in 2001, so that we can prototype industrial design models and working models in conjunction with CAD/CAM systems.

Software and prototype model production services

[Strength of products/technologies]
We excel in cutting and machining automotive parts using five-axis and multi-axis machines, which can be applied to aluminum, ADC, iron, and stainless steel, as well as increasingly in-demand GF/CF plastic components, as easily as to metal. We also handle machining of difficult‐to‐machine materials like Inconel and Hastelloy. Furthermore, in the medical field, we supply various test samples through simple metallic molding using aluminum dies.

[Representative's message]
If there are 100 manufacturers, there will be 100 unique problems to be solved. Quickly solving these problems requires a proper grasp of the main factors behind the problem and the ability to reconstruct a system that can correct them. Our mission is to realize the best manufacturing performance on the factory floor for all kinds of manufacturers, enabling them to dramatically cut delivery times and costs and to bring to market high-quality, high-added-value finished products, by consistently providing optimal services, from presentation to analysis, consultation, and proposal. To fulfill our mission, we always take a user-oriented viewpoint, without adhering to existing values, and giving the best pioneering recommendations.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our company seeks market expansion for our prototype model production services through the sales operations of our prototyping division and the sales operations of our Yokohama headquarters and CAD/CAM system sales bases in Osaka, Nagoya, and Nagano. Our prototyping division also independently exhibits at trade shows. Last fiscal year, we added one five-axis machine, one multi-axis machine, and one 3D metrology machine, strengthening our platform for handling diverse customer needs.

[Market share/Ranking]
Because we produce prototype models, it is not possible to determine a market share.
