Kashihara Kougyou Co., Ltd.
[Company strength] We started our corporate history as an ironworks related to shipbuilding, and later initiated a reverse-engineering and prototyping business based on laser scanning. Manufacturing structures are currently undergoing remarkable changes. Our company has built up and implemented a new business model for digital manufacturing using a laser scanner. We use a 3D laser scanner to convert object shapes into 3D data as they are, and create current status drawings for objects whose drawings have been lost. We also provide a wide-area 3D measurement service applicable to buildings, plants, and disaster-stricken areas. [Business description] Our company used to manufacture products based on plans. Many years of experience used to be necessary for accurate product manufacturing by picturing solids from plans. We implemented 3D CAD and built up a system for all our staff to be able to understand product images visually. We have been creating 3D CAD data for all our products to improve work efficiency since we introduced 3D CAD. 3D data enables high-accuracy NC laser cutting, pressing, and other kinds of processing of steel materials. This improves downstream process efficiency. [Industry] Metal product manufacturing [Representative's message] Japan's manufacturing industry requires innovations now that the market and labor environments are experiencing great changes. We think that current methods are not sufficient to keep up with changes in this environment. Entering new markets is not enough when we consider digital Monozukuri craftsmanship, foreign laborers, overseas collaboration, and Japanese human resources as keys for business continuation. We must aim to be an enterprise that survives by targeting market creation. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] Our company was established as an ironworks for shipbuilding in 1962. Our businesses are tank manufacturing for shipbuilding works, OEM production for ship equipment manufacturers, and laser cutting and other kinds of consignment processing. We also offer 3D digital prototyping. We will particularly showcase the advantages of 3D digital prototyping for cost reduction and efficiency improvement in the shipbuilding, construction, and plant equipment industries. This is how we want to promote sales and grow 3D prototyping as a core business. We established a local corporation in Vietnam in 2013 and have been promoting the use of overseas human resources since then. We aim to collaborate with overseas businesses for our own business expansion. [Awards and media coverage] [Awards] The 25th Chugoku Area New Business Awards, Excellence Prize.
