We are able to make proposals taking into consideration the heat resistance, corrosion resistance, and durability of the materials.
[Product description] KANAORI is a completely new material. We successfully developed it by taking full advantage of the characteristics of iron and combining them into a thread that feels like a soft hand-woven cloth. We apply our technological heritage to this new metallic mesh that offers a warm texture like cloth and dispels the cold physical touch that metallic mesh used to have. This entirely new concept has never been seen in the metallic mesh industry. It will change lifestyles. Its striking individuality speaks of beauty. This is our new KANAORI brand.

[Product description] We started to manufacture and sell the IK Screen®, a filter(melt filter) exclusively designed for resin extruder, in the 1960s. It makes use of the technology we acquired from mesh production. IK Screen is flexibly applicable to a wide variety of extruders and melt screen changers. We have been accumulating knowledge, experience, and skills in relation to extruder screen manufacturing since the 1960s. This is why we can offer new types of screen packs in a flexibly way. We reduce production costs by streamlining the manufacturing process, performing mold maintenance with our own staff, and procuring materials from global sources while maintaining the high quality of our products. We also enhance our quick delivery capabilities. Our company recalls and recycles used IK Screens as a resource. Our recycling activity reduces waste disposal as well as the environmental load.

[Product description] There is an increasing need for recycling waste plastics for use in home electronics appliances and the like. In the past the ordinary recycling process involved manually dismantling plastics made of a single material. However, the reuse of shredded solid waste containing several types of plastics has now begun. This is because people are becoming more concerned about global environmental protection and the effective use of limited resources. It is very important to sort materials from shredded solid waste in order to satisfy the increasing demand for material reuse. We offer a new sorting system with electrostatic separation. Our new system employs circular electrodes, so it can avoid the mixing of materials caused by electrode collision, which is a disadvantage of electrostatic separation. This is how it can perform high-purity separation of waste plastics that share similar physical properties. This includes polypropylene and polyethylene, which are used for the plastic bottle caps that are collected in Japan’s current ECOCAP campaign. You can introduce this device at half the cost of an infrared separation system. [Major facilities and equipment] Hand loom for metallic mesh, automatic metallic mesh cutter, metallic mesh slitter, rolling mill for metallic mesh, rolling processor for metallic mesh, power press, various welders, leveler, bender, and other machine tools.
[Company strength] We are a manufacturer specialized in screen(wire gauze/wire cloth/wire mesh/non-woven fabric ). We fabricate filters and sieves as industrial materials for chemical factories, pharmaceutical plants, food factories and other production sites. We produce filters and related parts for transportation equipment including automobiles, construction machines, agricultural machines, machine tools, etc. We also treat parts for home electronics appliances and components including loudspeaker covers and microphone covers, as well as decorative metallic mesh(wire gauze/wire cloth/wire mesh) /perforated metal )such as design panels for the construction industry. We can provide screen products for various industrial fields and accept requests for trial manufacturing and development, job-shop-type production and mass production. We can perform all procedures covering pressing, welding, assembly, thermal processing, and surface treatment in-house. Our company has a wealth of experience in manufacturing meshes from ordinary materials such as steel and stainless steel as well as non-ferrous metals such as copper, brass and aluminum. We also make meshes from alloys such as Monel, Inconel and Hastelloy, rare metals such as molybdenum, tungsten and titanium, and precious metals such as gold, silver and platinum. We are able to make proposals taking into consideration the heat resistance, corrosion resistance, and durability of materials. Our company is ready to provide high-quality, high-performance products as well as very competitive low-priced products in cooperation with overseas manufacturers in Germany, Italy, China, and other countries. We have results in making quick deliveries of prototypes while implementing planned mass production. Our company is always active in exploring state-of-the-art technologies and developing new products and new technologies making full use of industry-university collaboration and enterprise partnerships. [Industry] screen (fabric and plate) product manufacturing/machine product manufacturing [Strength of products/technologies] Extruders used in manufacturing plastic materials, films, electric cables, synthetic fibers, nonwoven cloth, sheets, tubes, and other rubber products. Screens (filters) used in extruders differ greatly in their materials and shapes depending on their applications and grades. They are very important parts that can determine the functionality, grades, and productivity of products. During the postwar period an enormous volume of plastic and rubber was produced in Japan. Our IK Screen brand was extensively used for a great variety of screening purposes through joint development efforts with machine makers in order to meet customer needs. Screens are consumable goods, so their price is a very important element. We have been consistently making efforts to obtain better materials and improve our manufacturing equipment functionality. This is done so that we can offer low-priced yet high-quality products to our customers. We developed a hand loom exclusively designed for metallic mesh. We make tool prototypes from rare metals, precious metals, and different materials. Our hand loom can be used for small-lot production, which is not possible with automatic looms. We developed structural analysis software and we are now producing advanced filters. We successfully developed a design punching panel that does not make wind noise. This was done through the development of Punch Editor punching design software and repeatedly performing demonstration tests including wind tunnel testing. This product is now used extensively as a material for many super-high-rise condominiums. We developed an electrostatic separator that can separate mixed materials. [Representative's message] Our company maintained R&D on screen(wire gauze/wire cloth/wire mesh/non-woven fabric )during the war while fabricating weapons parts as an ordnance factory. We have been actively engaged in developing various kinds of screen in cooperation with our customers since the postwar period. We will offer new technologies and new products in order to solve our customers’ problems through partnerships with different industries and industry-university collaboration. We will meet any needs of any industries according to our customer-first policy. We will do this by making use of our original punching design software, metallic mesh structural analysis tools, and our proprietary technologies including our hand loom. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] Our technology development department staff and sales engineers will answer inquiries from major companies as well as inquiries from overseas companies. English- and Chinese-speaking staff are waiting for your inquiry. We have no overseas factory at present, but we are considering the possibility of establishing a production site depending on demand. [Market share/Ranking] We deliver IK Screens and related products to more than 500 companies that use extruders.
