Applying its core technology of plating, Satosen is capable to handle pure gold (99.9%) to bond chips to printed circuit boards (PCBs). Manufactured at the only one company to provide in-house MADE IN JAPAN PCBs from the scratch, Satosen’s products are installed in mobile phones, LED, noise reduction module of high frequency units, heat dissipating modules. and etc. It takes any request from prototyping to mass production of  PCBs.

2) NO CLOGGING by SHAFTLESS CONSTRUCTION

SHINKO KOGYO INC. (Read on for details)

DSCF0434  P1050154

Now the MADE IN JAPAN shaftless screw conveyor is available from Shinko. Shinko is the ONLY ONE manufacturer in Japan, who has succeeded in bending harder and thicker metal plate for screw flights, whose plates were impossible to be bended outside Japan. Its shaftless screw conveyors are designed by the latest patented technology to transport goods (sludge and powder) three times faster then shaft conveyors (20 tons per an hour), even vertically.

3) DISSIMILAR METAL BONDING METHOD

KAWAKAMI WORKS CORPORATION (Read on for details)

DSCF0462  P1050158

Friction pressure welding of different metals is the new technology to reduce material costs and improve productivity, by producing heat and to plastically displace material under compressive force contact of work pieces rotating to one another. Kawakami proposes methods to eliminate waste and improve the strength of components by reworking your processing technologies and processes from scratch on the basis of drawings.

CEO Mr. Matsuda started his presentation from the employees’ singing video in the wooded room at cold headed parts factory. He explained their effort, called “New Value Creation”, to transfer mass production base from standard parts to specialized parts by employing new technology development in advance. Its goal is to introduce “Material Base Development”, including:

●Parts and material development from VE point of view

(cemented carbide at necessary portion only, normal steel at others)

Developed two core technologies:

1) Solid phase bonding technology for expensive raw materials used where it is easily worn down and different materials.

2) Surface reforming of cemented carbide by plasma laser hybrid spraying.

And applied those technologies to in-house tooling for manufacturing cemented carbide mold and for reusing mold.

●Branded products

Another challenge is to develop B to C business. One of them is a metal block “META ROCK” for adult to be released in 2016.

** MATSUDA is promoting proposal base marketing as “Crush simply and effectively than machine cutting” and started “T type” collaborative marketing.

●HR development
The key factor of MATSUDA’s challenge is company staff. To assist HR development it uses group training organized by its affiliated company, Osaka Caos. Although MATSUDA is a SME, it is possible to offer competitive rookie training program and  to let them identify group member from several companies as a class mate.
