Gaws Co., Ltd.
We cater to a wide variety of needs through powder injection molding technology.
Our company is a powder injection molding manufacturer established in 1985. Our accumulated experience and know-how allow us to meet various customer needs, including materials (metal or ceramic), sizes (minute parts), and irregular shapes. We are particularly confident about our ability to change from machining to near net shape processing for difficult-to-machine material. Our company has introduced a wide range of equipment to conduct all processes in-house, from development and production of molding materials to molding, degreasing, and sintering. We have joint R&D projects underway with the University of Hyogo, Tokyo University, and Tokai University.
[Company strength] (a) We possess a rich selection of molding compounds, from metal to ceramic materials. (b) All processes are conducted in-house. This includes molding material development and production, as well as molding, degreasing, and sintering. Our company possesses the necessary equipment for developing applied products with a wide range of materials. This includes kneaders for trial and mass production, atmospheric pressure high-temperature and atmospheric pressure degreasing furnaces, and vacuum and air-atmosphere high-temperature furnaces. (c) We have experience in joint research and joint development. [Business description] Our company provides metal powder injection molding (MIM) and ceramic powder injection molding (CIM). We also develop and produce injection molding compounds. We possess sintering technology, and support new materials from product development through applications. [Industry] Manufacturing [Strength of products/technologies] One of our strengths is that we can change difficult-to-machine material into a near net shape (shape of the final product). Another strength is that we offer many kinds of materials (e.g., stainless steel, tool steel, magnetic materials, Ti alloys). Near net shape technology realizes tetrapod type artificial bones weighing 0.005 grams, and carbide parts weighing 140 grams. This is done using difficult-to-machine materials and 3D or irregularly shaped near net shapes. Molding with an injection molding machine can better handle irregular shapes, and binder removal (degreasing) and sintering are managed. This is why the resulting dimensional accuracy is within ±0.5% of the requested dimensions. [Representative's message] We have a wide range of materials available for production. This is advantageous when developing a market. We offer a larger degree of flexibility in the molding shape compared to other manufacturing methods. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] Our company has completed many new material development and research projects through metal powder injection molding and ceramic powder injection molding. We can accommodate a wide range of needs with our wealth of equipment. This includes kneaders for material development, injection molding machines, a degreasing furnace, and various sintering furnaces (atmosphere furnace, vacuum furnace, air atmosphere furnace). [Awards and media coverage] [Awards] [Media] Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun, Chemical Daily, and so on. [Authorization/Certification] We have been granted a patent for “Nickel and Manganese-Free Stainless Steel” (abbreviated title). [Joint research and development] University of Hyogo: Development of exothermic particulate production method through powder injection molding (2012) and development of nickel and manganese-free stainless steel (2008). Tokyo University: Development of artificial bone unit with projection (2006). Tokai University: Development of pressure-less sintering technology for titanium boride (2004).
