Ishizawa Seisakusho Co., Ltd.

We promote efficient design and quality improvement by making use of 3D CAD and 3D printing.

We are an equipment manufacturer established in 1948. We develop and manufacture shredders and other devices in a wide range of fields. Our products include PTP tablet unpackers, equipment for automotive part manufacturing lines, parts related to wafer conveyors and chip mounters, electron microscopes, and food-related manufacturing equipment. We promote efficient design and quality improvement for products we develop in-house and on consignment by making use of 3D CAD and 3D printing. We possess technology to add wear resistance to shredders to enable shredding up to 50 sheets of PPC paper. This is done by applying thermal treatment to cutters with our original special shape. We have experience in joint R&D with universities and major companies.

[Company strength]
We make use of 3D CAD for design and 3D printing for trial manufacturing and evaluation when developing in-house and consigned products to raise design efficiency and secure high quality. We mainly use horizontal and vertical machining centers for machining. We can raise production efficiency with machining centers particularly for irregularly shaped cast products (FC, FCD, and aluminum). This is done by designing and creating our original jigs and making programs suited to the processes. We also support sheet metal working (laser cutting and turret punching, bending, and welding) and coating (pretreatment, coating, heating, and powder and solvent coating). We can handle thermal treatment and plating with partner factories in our neighborhood. Our advantage is this integrated production system from design and development, materials purchasing, machining, treatment, and assembly completion to inspection, packaging, and delivery.

[Business description]
We manufacture and sell office equipment (shredders) and industrial equipment (PTP tablet unpackers and equipment for automotive part manufacturing lines) developed by our company. We also assemble customer products and manufacture related parts on consignment. These products are used for semiconductor manufacturing equipment (parts related to wafer conveyors and chip mounters), and physicochemical equipment (electron microscopes and various analyzers). We also supply these products for industrial equipment and machines (food-related manufacturing equipment, machine tools, textile machines, industrial sewing machines, and automotive machines). We started to manufacture medical equipment this fiscal year. We provide manufacturing services to customers by proposing our accumulated manufacturing technologies and VA.

Other manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
We possess technology for securing wear resistance for office equipment (shredders). This is done by applying thermal treatment to cutters with our original special shape (capable of shredding up to 50 sheets of PPC paper). Our cutters for media other than paper (CDs, cards, floppy disks, video tapes, and so on) can reduce volumes by shredding. Shredded paper or other media is pressed or leveled to reduce the number of disposals. We successfully developed special functions for equipment for automotive part manufacturing lines that are not available from other companies. Now we continuously receiving orders from factories in Japan and abroad. We excel at special precision assembly work, including bonding, that requires know-how.

[Representative's message]
Our company does business with various customers in a number of industries. Ideas about manufacturing, unique know-how, and quality standards vary depending on the industry or customer. We have been working hard to satisfy individual requirements since our establishment. We have come across some cases that were difficult to handle with our level of technology, but we believe our accumulated experience has produced our know-how and is now assisting our manufacturing. We apply know-how based on our unique manufacturing and quality technologies to satisfy customer requests on a timely basis from design and development to providing assembled articles. We will continue our efforts for sales channel cultivation and overseas expansion to satisfy customer needs.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
The management department and sales director serve as our point of contact for customers. Shredders are handled by the sales department (including the Tokyo office). The design section of the technical department and the production technology section of the manufacturing department handle technical consulting and inquiries and can visit customers or hold meetings as required. It is currently difficult for us to conclude direct transactions with overseas companies, but indirect transactions through an interpreter or by other means are possible.

[Market share/Ranking]
Office equipment (shredders): About 20% in Japan (source: JBMIA).
Equipment for vehicle tire manufacturing lines: 100% both in Japan and abroad.
PTP tablet unpackers: 50% in Japan, and 5% abroad.
General medical equipment for otorhinolaryngology: 30% in Japan.
