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.

High technical capabilities of machining and quality control cultivated by imaging parts production over five decades allows TENKING CO., LTD. to respond to market demand correctly and timely and to expand business in an automobile industry and a single-lens reflex camera. Recently they are devoting to develop the new category product.

3) Ion Nitriding & Vacuum Heat Treatment

HATTA KOGYO CO., LTD. (Read on to find details)

DSCF8471  DSCF8482

Because their heat treatment method is unique in Kansai (Osaka area) they provide immediate and short lot run services.

With vacuum heat treatment there is no opportunity for corrosion to set in extending component life and distortion is significantly reduced due to the precise control of the temperature in the furnace, and the heating and cooling speeds. Particularly when applied to higher alloyed steels, plasma nitriding imparts a high surface hardness which promotes high resistance to wear, scuffing, galling and seizure.


<Part Two-Free Discussion>
