Precision mechanical switches for Automation!
We manufacture and sell industrial switchs and sensors for precision measurement and control that will facilitate factory automation. Our original high-precision mechanical sensors can provide highly precise performance even in poor environments with airborne coolant and chips. Our "tool setters" that can detect worn-out blade edges have achieved remarkable sales results in Japan and overseas. We focus on expansion into Asian countries including China, Thailand, and India as well as to Germany and South America. We have an extensive track record of transactions with leading companies in Japan and overseas. We have won awards including the Global Niche Top 100 selection by METI in 2014.
- Precision mechanical switches for Automation!
Precision mechanical Switches - Precision Mechanical Switches Contribute to Automation -
It is used for "precision positioning" and "determining the reference position" in a limited space, such as balancing the neurosurgical microscope and correcting thermal displacement of the XY stage of semiconductor manufacturing equipment. Because it is a “precision mechanical type” which does not use an amplifier, there is no temperature drift due to the external environment or self-heating, and it outputs high-accuracy position signals stably. Although it is a small mechanical type, it can withstand 3 million cycles mechanically and electrically. https://www.metrol.co.jp/en/case/2962/
Air Gap Sensor - Prevent Processing Defects and Automate your Machine Tools -
A must-see for machining centres and CNC lathes users! - Eliminate processing defects due to poor seating! - “± 0.5μm repeatability” overturns the common sense of conventional pneumatic “gap sensors” that could only detect the presence or absence. Reliable detection of poor seating caused by chippings between the jig and the workpiece. Prevents processing defects during the manufacturing process. A strong record of utilisation among numerous large automotive manufacturers. Click here for Denso's case https://www.metrol.co.jp/case/interview_denso/
Machine Tool System Integrator
Dear System Integrator of Machine Tools, Our company is a sensor manufacturer for machinery and equipment. We provide our customers with a variety of sensors, particularly, air sensors. We would like to cooperate with the companies interested in retrofitting our sensors, adopting them to new facilities and technical support. Dear Grinding Machine Users and Manufacturers, By installing an air sensor on the NC grinder, the reference position can be determined instantly without stopping the rotation of the grindstone. ・ Wish to automate the grinding machine? ・ Wish to standardise the reference position search? We would like to have opportunities to meet grinder users and manufacturers who have the above interest.
Company strength We do not imitate others. We develop original products to provide behind-the-scenes support for manufacturers all over the world. We specialize in industrial sensors that contribute to factory automation. We offer original products making full use of our abundant experience and accumulated know-how. We have acquired a large number of patents in Japan and overseas.

We will make every effort to achieve and improve these four purposes. Business description We design, manufacture, and sell precision measuring sensors and industrial sensors that contribute to factory automation and their applied products. Our products are used by more than 70 machine tool manufacturers in 17 countries as tool setters that detect worn-out blade edges. We maintain a globally top-class market share in the machine tool industry. We contribute to improving accuracy and reducing costs for industrial machines in numerous fields including the automobile, machine tool, robot, medical device, and smartphone industries. We do not imitate others. We develop original products and technologies so as to provide behind-the-scenes support for manufacturers all over the world. Strength of products/technologies We are a manufacturer that was established in 1976. We specialize in industrial sensors for factory automation. We have developed a precision mechanical sensor that is unmatched in the sensor industry, in which the market share is mostly held by major electric appliance manufacturers. Our precision mechanical sensor can offer higher accuracy compared with other makers' electric sensors, even in bad environments with airborne water and oil droplets. We were selected as a Global Niche Top 100 Company by METI in 2014. This is an award for manufacturers of high-value-added goods. Representative's message We aim to be the No.1 manufacturer in precision positioning technology, which is indispensable for factory automation. We plan to grow from being a switch maker into a measuring instrument manufacturer. We will do this by enhancing our air and electrical technologies in addition to the mechanical technology that is the core of switch manufacturing. We have active plans as our global expansion strategy to establish offices in Germany and South America in addition to those in China, Taiwan, India, and Thailand. We will do this to construct a global direct sales network. Company structure for market development/overseas expansion We launched a direct sales site for overseas customers in 1998 and started overseas sales activities. We established our own Internet distribution system combining electronic payment by credit card and international courier services. We have a track record of electronic transactions with more than 1,200 companies in 60 countries. We established a fully owned sales subsidiary in Shanghai, China in 2008 as the first step of our overseas expansion initiative. We set up a branch office in Bangalore, India in 2011, and a subsidiary in Taichung, Taiwan. We have plans to have an office in Bangkok, Thailand as our business base to deal with the ASEAN countries. We are actively advertising and promoting direct sales to machine design engineers all over the world by participating more than 20 special exhibitions in Japan and overseas per year.
