Only a small portion, such as chuck claws, of the overall production line for transportation wears off. But factories need to replace the whole set of the production line once those small parts wear away. Wouldn’t it be cost saving and efficient if we could change the weaken parts than the whole set? Or make the wearable parts more durable? MITEC Co., Ltd, a company in Japan, challenged this and provided solutions using ceramic adhesive technology. Ceramics are 10 times resistant than metals, but also costly than metals. MITEC, however, used the smallest portion of ceramics to cut down the cost, while providing extending the life of the production line.
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.
