Established in 1952, the Japanese company is specialised in machinery predominantly used for the production of non-equilibrium metal materials, such as metal powders. They have extensive experience in vacuum technologies, temperature control (rapid cooling), and motion mechanisms.
The company is offering order-made manufacturing services for:
- metal powders / ribbons;
- gas atomization devices that can produce metal powders
The metal powders are produced using alloys specified by the client. The Japanese company then uses their on-site equipment to experiment with the alloy resulting in powder down to diameters of 10 micrometres. Manufacturing metal ribbons is done using their quenching machines capable of rapid cooling (thinness of plates is negotiable)
All of these services are bespoke to client’s requirements.
Their gas-atomized powder has been used for a large number of applications. Notable examples are: 3D printing materials, soft & hard magnetic materials, battery materials, thermoelectric conversion materials, special glass materials, solder balls, metal injection molding (MIM), light metal materials, thermal spray materials, and plasma welding materials.
The company is looking to expand their activities to Europe starting with Germany and France, and is offering potential partners their capabilities through a service and/or manufacturing agreement.
They are willing to consider partners such as universities, research institutions, and private sector companies that are researching non-equilibrium metal materials.
The aim is to establish a long term relation with the potential users of their manufacturing services providing them regular support in their needs.
