Pig iron casting manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
We bring together the skills of craftsmen who are well versed in the flow and contraction characteristics of molten metal with state-of-the-art equipment and recent technologies such as inspection equipment. Our technical advantage based on this combination is that we can provide products and quality by maximizing the merits of hand molding (complicated shape processing, fine adjustment, and trial manufacturing). We design casting plans based on the expertise of skilled workers for high-quality, low-cost manufacturing of products with complicated shapes and having many cores. We derive accurate manufacturing processes by making the most of casting simulation (CAE).

[Representative's message]
Our policy is that Monozukuri craftsmanship is all about crafting people. We focus on cultivating human resources, and consequently on the stable improvement of our technical level. We are making the most of our inherited technology and the latest information technology to create a database through our production management system. This captures the manufacturing know-how and skilled workers’ techniques accumulated on the factory floor. We are attempting to establish the knowledge of our organization in this visualization process. We have no direct overseas transactions. The market is becoming global, so we hope to make the best use of our technology on a global scale by proactively introducing our products at overseas exhibitions.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We have arranged staff in the sales department as a point of contact in charge of new customers. Our technical staff directly visit customers as required to solve technical issues, and also to make better-elaborated proposals. Our company has implemented a production management system to monitor the manufacturing processes for each product. We share information between the manufacturing and sales divisions to manage costs and delivery dates.

[Market share/Ranking]
We think that there are a limited number of business operators in our neighboring areas that manufacture cast parts for large capital goods, and few have our kind of know-how.
