Grim Factory Co., Ltd.

We improve adhesion strength to metals and resins with UV inkjet printing.

We are a metal coating manufacturer established in 1997. Our company initially specialized in special printing such as silkscreen printing for text and numbers on remote controls and keyboards. Our current main product is baking finishing for timing chains, which are metal parts used in automobiles. This service has been used by all Japanese automobile manufacturers, General Motors, Renault, Hyundai, and Volkswagen since 2005. Our UV inkjet printing features excellent adhesive strength that clears the hurdles of washing and abrasion tests, and realizes colorful printing with a high degree of freedom and designability. We acquired a patent for this technology in 2016.

[Company strength]
Our company manufactured 77,138,900 units of timing chains in 2015. Our cumulative production volume since 2005 exceeds 600 million units, but there have been no reports of defects to date. We have developed original methods for production and inspection, and have succeeded in mass producing timing chains and other items that were difficult for other companies. 

[Business description]
Our company is a metal coating manufacturer that was launched in 1997 (corporate registration was in 2006). We initially specialized in the special printing field, such as pad printing and silkscreen printing for printing text and numbers on remote controls and keyboards. We started to provide baking finishing around 2005 for timing chains, which are metal auto parts, and this has now become our main product. Another line of business is UV inkjet printing on buttons, using a new printer that we introduced in 2009.

[Representative's message]
Most orders have come from companies in Tochigi Prefecture. We hope to demonstrate our patented technologies and approach potential customers in the Tokyo metropolitan area, and then enhance recognition of our brand name and technologies throughout Japan. 

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We have been working to expand our patented inkjet business, and it has recently acquired approval under a Monozukuri craftsmanship subsidy program. We will introduce a dedicated robot coating system to stabilize the adhesion layer and handle volume production. We previously had only one inkjet operator, but we have been assigning and training additional staff. We are also producing a special brochure in cooperation with the Tochigi Industrial Promotion Center to fully promote our patented technology. Our company did not have a sales department, but we have been forming one under the leadership of our president.
