Custom Metal Works Division
We can fulfil any order.
We offer fully customized component development to meet our customers' needs.
We offer unified support for optimized product proposal,
manufacturing, and mass production.
Consult with us about anything from detailed design diagrams to ideas
still in their incipient stages.
We collaborate with over 100 specialized manufacturers to
provide wide-ranging support from improvement proposals for increasing
efficiency to the development of products which require advanced technologies.
Creating high precision products is a matter of course for SATAKE.We provide ideas that go above and beyond mere precision.
It's important to develop products that require high precision technologies, but efficiency, such as lead time reductions, is also extremely important.We use our long years of experience to provide optimal proposals.
We collaborate with over 200 manufacturers.We can handle your advanced technical needs.
SATAKE uses its technologies and expertise in its in-house factory, but has also built a collaborative system with over 200 dedicated manufacturers with their own individual technical capabilities.Our collaborative network enables us to provide a wide range of proposals.
State-of-the-art inspection equipment and database creation.Our quality assurance system earns the trust of our customers.
In order to manage the diverse orders we receive from our customers, we actively use new technologies, such as state-of-the-art inspection devices and databases. These enable us to make constant improvements and maintain an even higher level of quality.
SATAKE's Quality Assurance
01. Database of all products created using barcode system
SATAKE Precision Technology uses a database that leverages the barcode system it developed in-house. This database is used to manage quality and shipping for over 30,000 processed metal components, and makes it possible for us to offer ultra-short lead times of as little as one day.
02. Thorough confirmation using state-of-the-art inspection devices
SATAKE Precision Technology's Quality Assurance Division leads inspections during each step of the manufacturing process, from material receiving to packaging and shipping. These inspections are performed using general measuring devices and state-of-the-art inspection devices. We inspect our products closely, managing their quality systematically, with the aim of producing zero defects. This guarantees the high quality of our products.
03. Quality management system
SATAKE Precision Technology has defined a quality policy aimed at improving customer satisfaction, and all business sites have received ISO9001 certification (ISO9001 is an international quality management standard). We will continue to make ongoing improvements and strive to provide a steady and rich selection of superior products and services. We have also obtained quality and environmental ISO certification. Our goal is not merely to obtain certification, but to fully integrate our management systems to provide greater value.
Examples of proposals
Through application of the fully order-made metal component processing that is the specialty of SATAKE Precision Technology,
we have proactively resolved the problems of our customers.
Some examples of proposals that have realized “giving concrete form to concepts” are set out here.
We have provided our customers with cold forging and cutting proposals to successfully reduce costs by roughly 30%. Processing blanks using cold forging greatly reduces material and cutting costs. This processing method is best suited for products with some degree of volume that are thick along their axis.
When combining cutting plates and press pins, we designed and proposed our own optimal press pin size and used it to produce finished products. We worked together with customers to consider quality, delivery times, and costs from the product prototype rough drawing and sketch stage, provided manufacturing design support, and greatly reduced design lead time.
3Processing of difficult shapes
The existing technologies used by the customer were difficult and involved significant loss. We collaborated with a partner plant with optimal welding technologies to provide a one-stop solution. The surfaces of the completed articles were sensitive, so we also designed and proposed packaging which would protect them from damage.
4Spinning lathe processing
The customer wanted to smoothly handle the transition from prototyping to mass production, so we proposed the use of spinning for prototyping pressed products. Spinning can be ordered on an individual product basis, so it's perfect for spot use for small lots by customers concerned about the cost of making dies for pressing products.
5Wire cutting processing
Working in collaboration with a specialist manufacturer, SATAKE Precision Technology runs more than 12 wire cutting machines for 20 hours every day to realize major cuts in hourly costs. This approach makes it possible to handle thicknesses of 0.01 ～ 300 mm and to carry out stack processing of thin plates. Our facility is fully equipped with approximately 250 jigs including special shapes to realize cost reductions.
6Lost wax processing
SATAKE Precision Technology's lost-wax process uses overseas production to offer lower costs than domestic manufacturing while maintaining the same quality as domestically manufactured products. Compared to domestic manufacturing, lost-wax processing cuts material costs by roughly 30% and mold costs by roughly 65% -- significant savings.
7Transfer press processing
We provide proposals for switching from a multi-process approach consisting of single-shot pressing and assembly to integrated pressing technology to meet customer needs. Our large progressive press machines can process stainless steel sheets up to 9.0mm thick, reducing costs by roughly 30% as well as shortening lead time.
