Kawashima Metals Co., Ltd.

High-performance production of mold bases related to two-color molding and others

We produce made-to-order precision molds, mold parts, mold bases, etc. required for high-precision mass production of plastic products. Our solid track record in producing mold bases for optical, medical, automotive, and stationery applications, plus two-color molding, as well as our long history of technical cooperation with camera manufacturers, allows us to respond to the needs of a wide range of fields. We finish our products with micron-order polishing accuracy through precise detection of any warp or distortion of plates. Plate deterioration, etc. is minimized by maintaining a constant temperature of 23 ± 1 ℃ in our plant’s temperature-controlled room, and all mold base processing is carried out within a production delivery time of two weeks, as a standard.

[Company strength]
Optical, medical, automotive, stationery, there are many mold base of production performance of the two-color molding related, etc., various techniques have accumulated over the years technology collaboration with camera manufacturers, today is the application of the technology, various fields it can to get started. In addition, in a thermostatic chamber factory, always 23 ± 1 ℃ original temperature management thorough of, to minimize such as alteration of the plate, the production delivery in mold base all processing, including the inspection, as a reference within 2 weeks we are running.

Our solid track record in producing mold bases for optical, medical, and automotive applications, plus two-color molding, as well as our various accumulated technologies and long history of technical cooperation with camera manufacturers, allows us to meet the needs of a wide range of fields. In addition, plate deterioration, etc. is minimized by maintaining a constant temperature of 23 ± 1  ℃ in our plant’s temperature-controlled room, and all mold base processing including inspection is carried out within a production delivery time of two weeks, as a standard.

[Business description]
[Precision mold base production]
Plastic mold for custom mold base. We have been custom-made precision molds needed to high precision and mass production of "Plastic Products", which is a daily necessities, mold parts, the mold base and so on. In addition to making full use of 1966 founded since accumulated technology, we are pleased to provide a stable quality.

[ES (freezing) chuck]
+ 17 low temperature coagulant can be frozen fixed and processed the work is used to freeze at ℃, is a new fixation techniques. Metal and non-ferrous metal, since other materials can be fixed and machining, and can be utilized to it is no longer necessary labor and materials cost reduction and new technology development such as jigs and tools in the material and shape that was in trouble in the clamp.

[Precision mold base production]
Special mold bases for plastic molds. We produce made-to-order precision molds, mold parts, mold bases, etc. required for high-precision mass production of plastic products, which are daily necessities. In addition, we make full use of our technology cultivated since 1966 to provide consistent quality.

[ES (frozen) chuck]
New technology capable of frozen fixing and processing of work by using a low-temperature coagulant that freezes at +17C. Our ES chuck makes it possible to fix and machine metal, nonferrous metal and other materials, and thus eliminates the need for jigs, tools, etc. for materials and shapes that are difficult to clamp. Thus, the ES chuck reduces the processing time and material cost, and can be applied to new technology development.

[Strength of products/technologies]
[For mold: Precision mold base]
Polishing accuracy and assess the warp-distortion of the plate, make the finish in microns table. In addition, since there is a quality control department in-house, you can provide a stable quality. I will be kept to an error of about 10 microns even processing from both sides.

[ES (freezing) chuck]
Ceramics, glass, non-magnetic material or very fine, such as aluminum, also shape be reliably fixed to the fixed hard work for the processing table stable under typical securing method at irregular. Cold coagulant to freeze at + 17 ℃ is compared to a fixed wax or adhesive, Ki can easily fixed, since it is possible to suppress the fixed stress to the work, makes it possible to suppress the distortion of the processed .

[For mold: Precision mold base]
We finish our products with micron-order polishing accuracy through precision detection of any warp or distortion of plates. In addition, we have a quality control department in house, and thus provide consistent quality. Error suppression is within approximately 10 micrometers, even in processing both the front and back surfaces.

[ES (frozen) chuck]
Our ES chuck is used on the processing table to securely fix and stabilize workpieces made of non-magnetic material such as ceramic, glass or aluminum, or extremely fine or irregularly shaped workpieces, which are difficult to fix by conventional methods. The low-temperature coagulant, which freezes at +17 ℃ , easily fixes the workpiece and reduces the stress on the work compared with using wax or adhesive, thus making it possible to suppress distortion after processing.


[Representative's message]
Patronage is look forward to exceptional patronage, and extremely grateful.
In backing, we were able to celebrate the 40 th of the year to May 1, 2012. Since its 1966 founding, even while faced with various difficulties, to maintain an independent, that it was possible to continue the business, I would like to solely appreciation than the gift and the heart of your support and patronage of everyone.

The future, we will maintain a culture of quality pursuit of its founding years, and made a change along the flow of the other hand era, we will continue working hard so that we can spread the further growth rings and after 100 years after '50.

Continuing with "mold base" and "mold / equipment parts", "material", please consult us.
In the future, about unchanged for your guidance and encouragement, thank you.

Due to exceptional customer loyalty and support, in 2012 we celebrated our 40th anniversary since the company’s origin in 1962 and continued as an independent business even during difficult times. While changing with the trends of the times, we have always pursued the highest quality of mold bases, parts and materials, with the goal of reaching our 50th anniversary and then our 100th.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Estimates Staff resident four a, so that it is possible to provide an estimate responded to until the day - the next day, we have established a system. In addition, female staff who can speak to quickly respond can be four languages (Japanese, English, Chinese and Korean) in meeting with overseas manufacturers are resident.
Also there dealings with Southeast of local manufacturers.

Four of our staff members respond to requests for quotation within one or two days. We have one staff member who speaks four languages (Japanese, English, Chinese and Korean) and immediately handles meetings with overseas manufacturers. We also have a trade relationship with a local manufacturer in southeast Asia.
