Using our unique material design technology based on engineering plastics, we consistently meet the challenge of increasing strength and precision, and achieve lighter weight by shifting from metal to plastic.
In addition, we help to improve automobile fuel economy by using analysis technology for sophisticated layout design and improvement of aerodynamic characteristics.

Efforts to reduce environmental impact by using oil-less/greaseless products

We reduce impact on the environment by using plastic bearings with self-lubricating properties (requiring no oil or grease) that we have ourselves developed. In addition, plastics have outstanding wear-resistance characteristics, which helps reduce the need for maintenance.

Efforts for Quality Assurance

One of our ideals as a corporation is to be “an enterprise that is trusted as a business partner.” We must have numerous qualities in order to receive active selection as “a trusted business partner” by our customers. In addition to rapid response and proposal-making ability in the conduct of our business activities, the most important issue is the maintenance and improvement of good quality.
We have also set “quality policies and goals” at each of our production bases in Japan and abroad, and we are striving to assure quality that satisfies our customers.
