Biken Co., Ltd.

We support the automobile industry with their production equipment.

Our company provides production equipment to major automobile manufacturers. We provide integrated services including design, processing, assembly, adjustment, installation and maintenance of automation equipment, jigs, conveyors and machining equipment, industrial robot teaching, and supervision for setting up overseas factories. Our production equipment (labor-saving systems and so on) are also adopted by suppliers. Our operations have recently expanded through other activities such as R&D on next-generation equipment under the instruction and management of a major automobile manufacturer (engineering division). We plan to acquire more customers for our robot teaching business in China and Thailand. 


Other presentation

[Company strength]
We can make use of CATIA 3D design to offer one-stop solutions that go beyond standard design services in the automobile industry. This includes manufacturing (fusion of mechanics and electric devices), robot systems, on-site operation (installation, maintenance), and support for overseas operations. We manufacture robot systems in-house, so we can reflect the requirements you want based on our deep understanding of the movement and characteristics of robot systems from the design phase. This also allows us to reduce the manufacturing cost and lead time. These merits are our strengths. 

[Business description]
Our company provides design, processing, assembly, adjustment, installation, and maintenance services for automobile production equipment (automation equipment, jigs, conveyors, machining equipment, etc.) for major automobile manufacturers. We also offer supervision for setting up overseas factories. We offer production equipment (labor-saving systems and so on) to suppliers in an integrated manner starting from the design stage, in the same way as for major automobile manufacturers. We are currently conducting R&D of next-generation equipment under instruction and management by a major automobile manufacturer’s engineering division (the company name cannot be disclosed due to a confidentiality agreement). 

Automobile production equipment manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
Robotization is advancing in all automobile manufacturing processes including pressing, welding, coating, assembly, and engines and transmission. There has been a shift from humans to machines along with heightened requirements for speed (using servo motors), positioning precision, and repeat accuracy in conveyors, machining tools and assembly machines. We address these needs for labor conservation on the manufacturing floor and for manufacturing cost reduction by proposing and manufacturing such equipment. We help our customers through all phases from planning to implementation. In our robot teaching operation we have been able to reduce lead time in setting up the equipment. This was achieved by reducing and minimizing error correction between offline teaching with CAD (RobCAD) and when teaching data is loaded to the actual equipment. 

[Representative's message]
Our company has promoted offline robot teaching for major automobile manufacturers. Verification is increasingly required early in the CATIA drawing phase, and we plan to target China, Thailand, and other Asian countries for opportunities. 

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We are a company that has many young employees, and we are always moving forward toward a specific goal. We will act according to our principles of being creative, thinking outside the box, and taking actions to realize a goal. We will do this so that we can maintain our proposal-based work style to satisfy customer needs.

[Market share/Ranking]
We are a niche company that offers completely made-to-order products.

[Awards and media coverage]
Letter of appreciation for post-disaster overseas reconstruction efforts (major automobile manufacturer); award of excellence for the equipment division, and special award for the transport division.
