ALF Co., Ltd.

We are developing our business in press mold die parts in Japan and abroad.

We are a die parts manufacturer with a track record of doing business in Japan and overseas. We mainly manufacture and sell press and mold die parts. Our main strength is our high-precision grinding technology, and we can also deal with materials such as steel, ceramics, carbon, and fiber reinforced plastic (FRP). We have satisfied various customer needs and expanded our business. We have a track record in joint R&D with the Muroran Institute of Technology as a case of industry-university collaboration. We received the New Value Creation Award at the New Value Creation Fair 2015 held by the Organization for Small & Medium Enterprises and Regional Innovation, Japan.

[Company strength]
Our representative accumulated expertise in precision metal working technology while he was engaged at Chimera Co., Ltd., which is a company in our city in the same business as ours. He established an independent company in cooperation with Chimera in order to handle more precise processing technology, and develop a business with ultra-precision technology. Both companies continue to maintain a cooperative relationship, and our company targets the market for more minute articles in order to coexist in the market. Our representative has devoted himself to the study of technology power. He is advancing our business with the strong will to make the impossible possible. We are aggressively advancing ultra-precision manufacturing for die parts and other mechanical parts for customers throughout Japan based on our representative’s philosophy.

[Business description]
We make use of profile grinders, grinding machines, NC machine tools, and ultra-fine abrasive grains to provide die processing and manufacturing with micron-order precision. Our main strength is our high-precision grinding technology. Most of the precision die parts we manufacture using our high technology are produced on a build-to-order basis. We receive orders from about 40 customers throughout Japan. We also manufacture and process ceramic precision parts, as well as steel parts, and we can handle fiber resins such as carbon and FRP.

[Industry]
Die part manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
We possess processing technology with accuracy on the order of 1 to 2 one-thousandths of a millimeter, or 1 to 2 μm. We employ this accuracy to conduct metalworking of ordinary steel and other high-hardness alloys. We have a particular advantage in our technology for creating high-hardness alloys such as zirconia with superposition precision of 3 to 5 μm, and we can create punch shapes with a tip shape of 0.01 mm. We excel in grinding processing of miniscule articles with a size of 30 mm or less, and we can also handle ultra-high-hardness alloys.

[Representative's message]
We have been studying the niche field of ultra-precision machining by grinding. We think we have accumulated a considerable amount of technology to date. Our current transactions with enterprises in Hokkaido are small in scale. Most of our business is with enterprises outside Hokkaido. Our customers are distributed throughout Japan, in Chubu, Chugoku, Shikoku, and Kyushu, including the Kanto region. We hope to cultivate customer companies that want to apply this technology to overseas business as required. We think that our technology is second-to-none in our industry, and we make use of it so we can achieve what had been thought to be impossible. We genuinely hope that we can be of assistance to various customers in a range of fields.
