We introduced the high frequency welding technology of stainless steel to Japan early after the war, and designed and manufactured the high frequency Pipe Manufacturing Machine for stainless steel pipes by ourselves.
Then, using that equipment, we developed as a stainless steel pipe manufacturer. Currently, we specialize exclusively in equipment manufacturers, but the spirit of "challenge new things" and the experience of "producing pipes with our own equipment" at the time of our founding are still inherited as our characteristics.
We are doing it. It is a manifestation of the fact that we were among the first to commercialize technologies such as laser welding and pipe rolling, and support users' commercial production, including software. Recently, the functions required for pipes are becoming more sophisticated.
There is always a demand for equipment and operating technology that match that. We will continue to lead the industry by providing both hardware and software at the same time.
We will deliver "equipment" and "manufacture".
This is our motto.
We will contribute to the metal industry with experience and footwork from parts replacement to overseas projects.
