●Corporate management as an independent corporation

トラストWhen synthetic rubber rollers were industry standard, Techno Roll developed special compound resign rollers to provide superior print-ability.

Nishiwaki founded the Techno Roll in 1980. Since he had developed new technologies for 20 years as an engineer in the printing industry, his name was well known to the industry people worldwide. That is why he was asked to manufacture the high grade resin roller by an US corporation for uprising printing method even as the start-up corporate.

His business principle has been not to become a subcontractor. Nishiwaki said, “SMEs tend to take large orders from the specific LME without self-development. We took a different business approach to be independent, without any restriction from large companies, made every possible effort to establish own distribution network. Techno Roll must live up with high quality.” (note: LME is Large Manufacturing Enterprise)
So when Nishiwaki was requested to develop and supply components for a color copy machine, he declined its offer, although most of SMEs could willingly accept the offer to assure business stability. “On top of parts development we needed to accept mass production for the one LME. It would totally change our production capacity, schedule and human resources to respond to possible frequent design changes. It could cause inconveniences to our existing customers,” Nishiwaki explained the reason.

●Break a stereotype view

アークIIARC-II can clean rollers and belts automatically, reducing dangerous work of cleaning rollers and machine downtime substantially.

Even in a business depression Techno Roll has taken positive countermeasures backed by the problem solving ability created through cross technical field study.
Nishiwaki said, “Rubber rollers are said to be handled only by a chemist, however it’s not sufficient. We need to provide customers with our solution proposal by developing printing devices to be equipped with our rollers, control system of printing technology and device maintenance skills. At Techno Roll collaboration is prevailing among chemists, machine designers, computer system engineers and machine maintenance specialists and other technical field. This cross category work is exceptional activity at SMEs.”

●“High quality comes first” and “Thinking out of the box”

Techno Roll has been growing with their sincere respond to request from customers and expanded exclusive products in and out of printing field. They are exporting technologies to 14 countries and have received “Excellent Company of OSAKA” award from Osaka Prefectural Government and other certifications. Techno Roll took the different approach to the business, away from price competition, based on Quality First principle.
Nishiwaki always repeatedly requests his members to be creative and original. He himself takes the initiative all possible future plans, such as buying out the corporate and uplifting an age‐limit system for retirement. In 2014 Techno Roll will install the latest printing machines both at Osaka and Tokyo factories for in-house roller evaluation to accelerate roller quality improvement. Moreover he plans to invite partners from 14 countries to the “Licensee Meeting” and to review the state-of-the-art technologies.
Thinking out of the box and targeting to develop the first technology or the first service program in the industry, Nishiwaki knows no boundaries in business development.

1) To extract chemical liquid from 3mm depth – JAPON

Japon develops variety of FRP pumps that are capable of handling seawater and are resistant to chemicals. Their pumps are applicable at LCD panel factories because of high corrosion resistance against pharmaceutical products such as hydrofluoric acid, phosphoric acid and sulfuric acid.

The Japon’s new model works at very low liquid level, even it is only 3mm depth. The secret of extraction is the unit bottom structure:

The pumps are color coded by the type of chemicals from point of operator friendliness.

2) To automatically bundle soft or hard products – TAIYO SEIKI CO. LTD.

Taiyo mentioned “This model, JD-240 is supposed to be the one in every household whenever they need to manage a million dollar bills!”
