Ohtsuki Tekkou Co., Ltd.

We are a metal product manufacturer that has launched an aerial photography business using drones.

We are a metal product manufacturer established in 1953. Our company mainly offers ironworking and canning production. We manufacture and sell plant equipment, tanks, air-conditioning ducts, racks, and sand pipe supports. We have been accumulating knowledge and experience since our foundation, and we also make use of 3D laser processing machines. We have confidence in machining iron materials and we satisfy various customer needs as a specialist in iron materials. We took note of the potential of UAVs such as drones and multicopters to launch a new business, which currently focuses on aerial photography and survey photography using UAVs. We provide low-altitude and medium-altitude photography services that are not available with aircraft.

Metal product manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
3D laser processing equipment opens a new path: 3D laser processing equipment can provide efficient, high-accuracy processing of sheet materials, and also pipes, H beams, and angles. It can even cut out parts directly from materials. This equipment enables quick and accurate processing of complicated three-dimensional shapes that used to require high technology.
Provide new aerial photos using UAVs: UAVs are optimal for low-altitude and medium-altitude photography that is impossible with aircraft. This makes it possible to take photographs even where there is not a broad area for takeoff or landing. We possess high-performance UAV equipment for high-quality photography that demonstrates its power in surveys even where people cannot enter.
