Transportation machine and tool (auto part) manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
We conduct integrated production from the component production step (press, wire, and pipe parts) to the assembly step (electric arc welding and spot welding). We take advantage of our manufacturing experience with vehicle parts to handle various kinds of spot welding. This includes welding between iron plates, between iron plates and pipes, between pipes and wires, and so on. We weld iron plates from thin iron plates to planks (with thicknesses from 1.0 to 4.5 mm), pipes (diameter 10.0 to 32.8 mm), and wires (diameter 3.5 to 8.0 mm). We produce high-efficiency, high-quality assembly parts used for tightening bolts, press and rotary caulking, springs (screws), and so on.

[Representative's message]
We were founded in 1954 and celebrated our 60th anniversary in 2014. We started to work on sheet metal technology when the company was founded, and focused on pressing. We conduct integrated production using large press machines, and contribute to our customers. We have advanced our conversion from pressing processing, and we now focus on welding. We mainly work on seat frameworks, but we have only one client at present. Our goal is to make use of J-GoodTech to expand our transactions by 2020.
