KOS21 Co., Ltd.
We have a good record in manufacturing sputtering targets and processing aerospace-related components.
We can manufacture sputtering targets in an integrated manner throughout all the processes from machining to bonding. We have a relationship with aerospace businesses whose requirements are difficult to achieve. We have a good record of processing different materials ranging from aluminum to difficult-to-cut materials (such as magnesium and Ti).
[Product description] We handle machining, bonding, inspection, vacuum packaging, and shipment of sputtering targets, which are used for semiconductor and liquid crystals. As long as clients provide us with target materials and warranty on materials, we can supply target products to end users directly. We have a quality assurance system, and upon request, conduct analysis and store the data including crystals, hardness, and conductivity from metal tests. We can also handle back plates for cooling, which are called back plates for targets. Applying our technologies cultivated through manufacturing of sputtering targets made of aluminum with high purity, we manufacture sputtering targets made of copper or other materials.

[Product description] With our thin wall cutting technologies, we can handle slicing magnesium alloy and aluminum alloy from blocks in 1 mm thickness (the materials regarded as difficult-to-cut). This cutting technique is used mainly for aerospace parts, which require precision and lightness. These materials are, for quality reasons, processed by cutting rather than welding, even for the parts where the latter would be commonly used. In processing, we take preventative measures against distortion using jigs and against vibration during processing. We pay particular attention to measure, flatness, parallel accuracy, and surface roughness for processing precision.

[Product description] We provide electrical designing/manufacturing and installation services of automatic instruments combined with machining technologies, as well as designing and manufacturing of electrical instrumentation panels and control system. In addition, we also manufacture DCS input/output relay units, and provide chemical plants with that.

[Company strength] We can manufacture sputtering targets in an integrated manner throughout all the processes from machining to bonding. We have a relationship with aerospace businesses whose requirements are difficult to achieve. We have a good record of processing different materials ranging from aluminum to difficult-to-cut materials (such as magnesium and Ti). We can handle orders for different processes including turning and milling, of various kinds and in small lot or for samples. Our department of electrical design can handle manufacturing of automatic instruments by combining machining and can-manufacturing process es and electrical installation. [Business description] Manufacturing of sputtering targets, precision machining , design and manufacturing of electrical instrumentation panels, general iron work, and maintenance [Industry] Manufacturer of metal products and electrical machinery and apparatus [Strength of products/technologies] With our thin wall cutting technologies, we can handle slicing magnesium alloy and aluminum alloy from blocks in 1 mm thickness (the materials regarded as difficult-to-cut). This cutting technique is used mainly for aerospace parts, which require precision and lightness. As for sputtering targets, we are the only company in Kansai with an integrated production system. We can handle cutting, machining, bonding, and vacuum packaging, once clients provide us with target materials. As for welding of metal materials, we have many technologies. In aluminum welding, in particular, we can handle TIG and MIG welding and electronic beam welding to targets, depending on customer needs. We have also established a bonding technology for different materials by utilizing the bonding technology between aluminum targets and back plates. [Representative's message] As for cutting processing of aluminum, we have high precision techniques accumulated in manufacturing of semiconductor and aerospace related parts. We are now trying to obtain JISQ9100 certification in order to enter the airplane industry. As for sputtering targets, we have an integrated production system, which covers everything from cutting, bonding, and packaging/shipping. We are highly regarded by our clients for our performance in quality and delivery. In recent years, we have been making joint efforts across machinery and electric departments as well as with major companies and universities, in research and development of machines and equipment, as well as improvement of our in-house facilities. Going forward, we will further hone our technologies and improve our safety and quality, and aim to expand overseas in the future. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] Our personnel in the Saijo office in charge of new clients respond to inquiries from major domestic and foreign companies. Our technical staff members are happy to respond to client requests for technical consultation .
