Kuno Kinzoku Industry Co., Ltd.

We can provide even three million pieces of pressed parts a month with a quick turnaround.

We are a manufacturer of precision pressed parts established in 1947. We are extending our business mainly in the fields of automobiles and industrial machines. Our company has a system for providing one-stop services from design and development to mold creation, press working, weld assembly, machining, and surface treatment. We satisfy various customer needs by manufacturing pressed parts from several hundred to three million pieces a month, with up to 1,200-ton progressive molding and quick turnarounds. We have confidence in our technical power. We reached the quarterfinals in the All-Japan Manufacturing Koma Taisen Global Tournament 2015, where participants compete for technical superiority by using handmade game pieces.

[Company strength]
We can cover from product design and development to trial manufacturing, mold creation, and mass production in-house for part manufacturing by progressive pressing up to 1,200 tons. This is why we can proceed with pressed part development while minimizing the risk of leakage of the customer’s confidential information. Trial manufacturing assumed for production enables a smooth transfer from post-trial verification to mass production. We have made many proposals for using pressing to manufacture forged and machined parts or sintered parts. We can make it possible to conduct all progressive pressing and enable one-process completion by using the press machines and automation equipment that we developed in-house. Our company possesses more than 150 press machines, and we have a great variety of press machine models. Our stock includes progressive servo presses up to 1,200 tons (bolster size: 4.5 mm) and servo robot presses up to 250 tons (maximum 15 processes).

[Business description]
Our company provides one-stop services for automotive and industrial precision pressed parts from product design and development to mold creation, press working, weld assembly, machining, and surface treatment. We can manufacture pressed parts in a wide range of quantities from several hundred to three million pieces a month. We can handle up to 1,200-ton progressive molding with quick turnarounds. Our in-house mold production ratio is over 90%, and we can quickly provide complicated high-precision pressed parts. We developed photovoltaic panel mounting brackets in-house, which make it possible to install photovoltaic panels on the roofs of factories and warehouses with maximum efficiency. Our products have already been adopted by more than 10 major manufacturers because of our overwhelming product power. We have been participating in the All-Japan Manufacturing Koma Taisen since 2013. This is a spinning-top contest that supports Japan’s manufacturing industries. We participated in the Global Tournament in 2015 and reached the quarterfinals. 


[Strength of products/technologies]
Our company makes use of unique drawing molds (patented) to manufacture a wide variety of unrivaled pressed parts. Our design and development of pressed products and mold design are fully based on our past achievements in manufacturing several thousand kinds of products. We also carry out simulations. We possess high-precision mold creation equipment, pressing machines developed in-house, and automation equipment. We adopt our in-house standard QDC system for all molds, including progressive and robotized articles. This is done to mitigate the issue of mold storage, which is a major problem for pressing factories. We store in-house molds in the minimum possible space by considering the balance between maintenance performance and cost. QDC also contributes to reducing the time required for trial mold creation. We developed photovoltaic panel mounting brackets in-house, which make it possible to install photovoltaic panels on the roofs of factories and warehouses with maximum efficiency. These brackets are currently available.

[Representative's message]
Our company has been supplying various high-precision pressed metal products with complicated shapes in Japan and throughout the world for about 70 years. We have high technical power and the production capacity to satisfy various customer needs. We have gained these advantages by proactively implementing cutting-edge equipment and improving the knowledge and skills of our employees. We participate in exhibitions several times a year to develop sales channels. Introductions by our customers and Web information have been leading to increased orders from new customers in recent years. We will further improve our technology and manufacture high-quality products to contribute to society.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our company is committed to Made-in-Japan production, and we export about 50% of our products to automobile manufacturers worldwide through our customers. We are also partially involved in direct sales to North America. We have staff who are proficient in English to directly deal with overseas engineers and procurement staff. We have experience in providing difficult-to-process products at quick turnarounds. We started up production in North America in 2.5 months for a product that usually takes half a year. We avoid the need to take measures against various risks such as quality involved in overseas production. We maximize the advantages of production in Japan to gain superiority in pressed parts in terms of added value, turnaround, supply stability, and total cost.
