Starting as a special steel trading company, Nagoya Tokushuko entered into the die and mold manufacturing industry after learning the processing technologies through effectively using CAE and CAD. The company now has a top class share in the market for crankshafts and connecting rods, both important parts of an automobile. The company's precision dies and molds, indispensable for CVT's for automatic transmissions, are manufactured with high-level technologies unparalleled in the country.
An advantage of Nagoya Tokushuko is its production system which integrates the whole process of the production of the dies and die parts for forged and sintered products, from design and process simulation to the direct cutting of the impressed parts, fitting, finishing, and trials. What supports this system is the company's know-how on special steels that it gained as a trading company dealing in these materials. The company's ability to propose a comprehensive solution package from a selection of materials that best suit customer needs, and to the design and construction of the dies and molds, has won the great confidence of customers.
Fully satisfying our customers' needs for technologies, product quality, delivery times, and reduced costs
In the market of dies and molds for auto parts, competition in quality and cost have been increasingly keen in recent years. Here, the company has quickly responded to customers' exacting requests for thorough cost reduction, productivity, shorter delivery times, and new products as well as pursuing the development of new technologies to live up to their expectations.
What supports these efforts is the employees' abilities. To further improve productivity, the company trains machine operators on a routine basis to help them become all-round players. Many of the employees are certified skilled workers.
In 2000, Nagoya Tokushuko installed an experimental five-axial press on its premises and started to use it not only for trials but also to collect various test data and to improve and develop the manufacturing process based on such data.
In 2002, the company set up a die and mold fabrication subsidiary in Kentucky, U.S.A., and started to supply Japanese auto parts makers in America with its products. In 2004, it started to fabricate press dies in the U.S.A. - Nagoya Tokushuko's spirit of challenge knows no limits.
