Seki Press developed and patented a metal splitting technology that has proven useful in many industrial applications from control panel manufacturing to the automotive industry. The Warisaki metal technology was developed in 2012 and has since been patented in Japan and several other Asian countries. Warisaki allows the company to provide end users with novel solutions to longstanding design problems that were simply not possible in the past. Seki Press (SP) no longer supplies their customers with standard products/ Instead it asks customers the question, “what can we create together”? Seki Press’s metallurgists worked hard to apply the Warisaki technology to split the high strength titanium alloy 64, an alloy […]
A wide range of orders–from the semiconductor to the automobile industry–reach KOBAYASHI PRECISION INDUSTRY Co.,Ltd., where we work with a variety of metals. Constantly challenging new fields, our company can also show for supporting JAXA’s “Hayabusa” project in the past. Furthermore, we take on development of original products and have therefore created small-breed dog implants in cooperation with Nihon University. In the field of animal treatment, there is a definite need of medical equipment for small-breed dogs. Our product completely reflects this need and as an improvement to the current state, there is a big demand to be expected in the field of animal treatment.
In the transport equipment used on the production line, it is common for only a small portion of the parts, such as the sliding surfaces and rails that convey products, and the chuck claws that grab products, to wear down. However, you currently need to discard and replace the entire part due to wear on just one portion. If you could replace the weaker parts with a more durable material, and could replace them like the blade of a box cutter, couldn’t you use the part itself for much longer? And if the part had a longer life, couldn’t you reduce running costs, use resources more effectively, and more easily […]
Calking technology allows the jointing of two metal sheets without welding, metal fittings, or adhesives. The technology has advanced even further and is now essential in a wide range of products for industrial equipment, electronic equipment, and home appliances. With its high strength, air tightness, and commanding manufacturing speed, Enami Seiki Mfg. Co. Ltd. ‘s machines held a 40% market share of world microwave oven production until a few years ago. Enami Seiki’s calking technology has the capability to form even coated steel sheets by press working without heating as its advantage. With high technological competence that competitors cannot imitate, Enami Seiki has been in business with all domestic home […]
Pipes are critical to the infrastructure of modern society. While there are many approaches to pipe manufacturing, Tokyo-based Sakae Casting is the only company to have developed pipe-casting technology that opens up new possibilities. The extraordinary precision of the casting enables a minimum clearance of 0.5mm, with a space between both parts of just 1mm, a plate thickness of 8mm, and a pipe diameter of 6m. Sakae has used this technology in creating their “water-cooled thin-type cooling plate (cold plate),” a mainstay product that has been adopted by the world’s largest semiconductor manufacturers, and their high technical ability is already attracting attention from around the world. The company is also rapidly […]
Ohzen is a manufacturer of machining processes for cast iron, stainless steel and specialty metals. The metal parts that it manufactures are widely used in ultra-high precision devices such as Japanese-made three-dimensional measurement equipment and the electron microscopes used in brain surgery. It is also involved in the machining of difficult-to-cut materials and specialty metals like titanium and magnesium. The clutch levers and steps that it cuts from titanium for use in American-made motorcycles were originally made just for the company’s own use, but their remarkable quality has earned them the rabid devotion of fans. This skill in high-precision metal cutting has made itself known in a wide variety of fields, ranging […]
MURAMASA: the Japanese sword (katana) that is famous for its highest quality. Today, that extraordinary sword is reborn in the mold used in the preparation of medicine. Nanno Co., Ltd., a company that designs and manufactures metal molds, has developed a tableting mold called “Muramasa” for compressing and molding powder that becomes medicine tablets. The “MURAMASA” mold has the durability that surpasses conventional products found in the market, and so it has attracted a great deal of attention in the pharmaceutical industry.
Almost 30 years ago, Kashima Bearings Corporation began manufacturing their plastic ball bearings. When the founder Shizuo Kashima visited his wife’s hometown, someone at the fishing port complained to him that the conveyor belt that carries fish would always get rusty. So, he suggested using parts made of plastic resin that is resistant to alkaline from fish and corrosion by salt water. And then, he designed his own plastic ball bearing and started manufacturing it.
