Careful work with proficient skill

There is a variety of work within a casting factory. There is the separation of scrap parts from products after they are casted by pouring molten metal into a mold, welding work where we use our welding technology for gas welding of defective areas which are unrelated to the function of the products, milling cutter operation to rough process the products, and other work all of which requires unique technology and proficiency.

The technicians employed by our company have sufficient knowledge and skill while also working hard to study and increase their skills day by day. Utilizing the achievements and experience accumulated over many years, we can meet a wide array of customer needs from improvement of product quality to cost reduction and more.
