Unics Co., Ltd.

Coating with wear resistance, noise prevention and sliding properties added

We apply technical coatings (PTFE such as Teflon, nylon, etc.) that give high-function characteristics including wear resistance, noise prevention and sliding properties to industrial materials and appliances such as powder manufacturing equipment and automatic assembly devices. Polyurethane coatings inside parts feeders are our main business. We have connections with many universities, and promote industry-academia partnerships. As a result, we have succeeded in developing high-function and high-performance polyurethane coatings, and are gradually developing sales channels. We have accumulated urethane coating techniques for part feeders for more than 30 years, and provide solutions meeting customers’ needs, including prompt delivery, high accuracy, and technical suggestions.

[Company strength]
1. We have connections with many universities and have produced good results in industry-university partnerships through active consultations and discussions.
2. As a result, we have succeeded in developing high-function, high-performance polyurethane coatings under the “Strategic Core Technology Advancement Program”, and are gradually developing sales channels.
3. We have accumulated urethane coating techniques for part feeders for more than 30 years, and have gained users’ deep trust in our prompt delivery, high accuracy, technical proposals, etc.
4. We proactively solve problems and focus on being a research and development enterprise. As a result of such efforts, we have earned the title of Excellent Company of Osaka, “Takumi” (artisan).


[Business description]
We apply technical coatings (PTFE such as Teflon, nylon, etc.) that give high-function characteristics such as wear resistance, noise prevention and sliding properties to industrial machines and appliances including powder manufacturing equipment and automatic assembly devices. Polyurethane coatings inside parts feeders are our main business. We have succeeded in developing polyurethane coatings accompanying the expansion of customers’ various needs for high functionality. We also conduct research and development on paints such as the synthesis of paints, synthesis/composition of new materials, etc. and we also manufacture and sell paints. We also conduct processing of engineering plastic parts, lining work of belt materials, trade export, etc.

[Industry]
Functional surface treatment processing such as polyurethane coating; development, manufacture and sales of urethane paints

[Strength of products/technologies]
1. Polyurethane coating enterprises in the same line of business do not develop their own unique paints. In contrast, we have succeeded in developing even higher-function, higher-performance paints that outperform their paints, and are expanding the applications of our products (e.g. high wear resistance, high elasticity, low contraction).
2. We have completed a high-sliding polyurethane raw material by composite manufacture through research and development for meeting customers’ needs. We are expanding the applications of the material, utilizing its ability to compensate for the weaknesses of PTFE (Teflon).
3. We have the ability to quickly deliver single products to single customers for most of our coatings, and the ability to respond to users’ price requests by our original tool manufacturing, as well as orders for mass production.



[Representative's message]
We have tried matching programs with domestic major enterprises and also participated in the Thailand-Japan Business Matching Conference this fiscal year. We are now negotiating with major enterprises which we have met at such events to develop new customers, and plan to continue these activities. In this process, we will focus on active training with partners and independent action, including training successors with the right management attitude. We will hire new sales and technical staff who can communicate in English, to improve our personnel and abilities in the manufacturing department. We will also focus on business, including technical know-how, without any local plant, as usual for overseas development.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We joined the Association of Powder Process Industry and Engineering, Japan, the Osaka Prefecture Manufacturing & Industrial Association, etc., and with introductions we have carried out sales activities through seminars and study meetings.
We joined the Japan-China Economic Relations and Trade Centre, and employed Chinese and Korean staff to handle foreign office work, thus expanding overseas.
We have prepared catalogs, product descriptions, sample boards, etc. in Chinese and English, and are now setting up a product website for publicity apart from our homepage.
We have released our products on the Alibaba internet marketplace. We subcontract English-related work to a trading company because we have no English experts. We will employ an English-speaker in the next fiscal year.



[Market share/Ranking]
We estimate that our share of the parts feeder-related coating business in the Kansai region is more than 60%. (There are 50 or so parts-feeder bowl manufacturing companies in the region, and almost all of them are our customers.)
