Miruc Optical is renowned for the fine craftsmanship and high quality of its measuring microscopes and fine-tuned sliders used in positioning. The company’s mainstay product, the “Dovetail Stage,” is a slide unit that is particularly favored for its smooth, long stroke and load-bearing capacity. Miruc’s artisans created a product with motion so smooth that it cannot be compared to those from other firms. As a standard component for positioning and measurement, these tools are widely regarded as essential workplace items.
With the help of Maeda Shell Services compressed air quality measurements and the resulting installation of air filters a broad variety of problems in several industries could be solved. We introduce some cases where energy and cost savings could be realized, because defects disappeared and machine malfunctions were significantly reduced. 3 in1 Multi Dry Filter – It combines three filter functions in one filter body – It reduces all forms of particles and oil mist larger than 0.01μm by 99.99% – Its auto-drain function drains the filter automatically – HACCP, FSSC22000, ISO8573-1 compliant
Sample formed with Digital Mold®. With this type about 150 shots can be formed. Japanese SME Fuels the Manufacturing Revolution with Digital Mold® The small town of Ina would be an unlikely place to find a revolutionary. However, this is Japan and Ina is smack dab in the nation’s manufacturing hub. This story is about the unlikely cog turning the wheel of Japan’s manufacturing revolution – Swany. 3D printing is fast revolutionizing the manufacturing field worldwide by slashing the time it takes to produce products to a fraction of what it used to be. The cost is also much lower. Techniques using 3D molding resins and ABS plastic for […]
Until Metal Injection Molding (MIM) producing ultra-precision components used to require high cost machining. With MIM, you simply inject fine metal powder and binding materials into a mold to create a finished form. MIM is widely used throughout the United States and Japan, however, Castem has further refined the MIM process through its innovative patented technology that allows for lower manufacturing costs and greater design versatility. The result is a cost savings that could never have been imagined in the ultra-precision components production industry. It would not be an exaggeration to call Castem’s offerings revolutionary. On a balmy day in late June one of our reporters went to Castem’s corporate […]
