By studing the characteristics of processing media as well as expertise in processed products , we have realized the streamlining of complicated bending techniques and processes. In response to the needs of business customers, we continue to provide one-step-ahead, high-quality processing equipment applied with higher special precision technology and application capability.
Japanese state-of-the-art technology conquers and realizes bending work that has been considered physically impossible. Let us show you actual examples.
We are located just 50 minutes from Chubu International Airport by bullet train and local line. Nice sightseeing spots, such as the Gifu Castle, are also in easy access of our location!
Toko’s technology serves all over the world. Inquiries from people in developing nations are quite welcome.
Introduction of Toko Manufacturing company overview and history.
Toko’s bending technology is now beyond art. Priceless interview of representatives of Toko Manufacturing who are masters in bending technology.
At the time of establishment of Toko Mfg., we set forth the still lasting company policy in the belief that ...although this is a start from less than nothing, we do not want to fail once started. No technology. All we can do is challenge. This belief anyway roused us.
We had been working on press molds before specializing in bending molds. We were complete amateurs in the business of bending molds when we started. Anyway, we accepted jobs and learned almost blindly just by ourselves, or we asked for instructions from technicians employed by our clients. Taking jobs came first rather than planning. It has been that “we must manage,” not “we may manage.” Therefore, we sometimes could not sleep for 24 hours. We could not stand it that we could not manage something that someone else could. We had no choice other than brushing up on our skills. I never gave up on the belief that we are still the same as human beings.
One after another of trial-and-error, we established our own bending art for small R (micro 3D bending). I am confident that we can beat any other vendor for this 3D bending technology to make a bend in small Rs with certain shape maintained. Yet, bending is a complex art, and even our technology is still 70% completed in my opinion. Of course. we will keep working on 3D bending technology. We have already developed unpublished bending art and have obtained patents as well.
With highly elevated technologies, we will challenge the overhaul of used machine tools, sell machine tools that big companies do not sell, and make other tracks outside of bending. These are what we have in mind now.
My current first priority is to follow company policy, decide on its direction, and offer firm support to the president. in addition, I would like to absorb what the president has built up to now and take it to the next generation. Also, I would like to perfectly answer the needs of customers, be loved by them, and foster our company into something demanded by them. Customer needs maintain this company. We are here because of customer needs. Fostering employees who understand that idea will foster the company, and I believe this is my most important role.
I crossed the Japanese archipelago by bicycle from Nagasaki to Hokkaido when I was a student. What I decided at the departure of the trip was that I would never walk but ride up any hill no matter how steep. It was a challenge that shared the same thing with the policy of our company. Do what you said. Obtain reliance through the correspondence of my words to my actions. I believe it is identical in private and at work.
What we learned about the boundary of first class and second class is whether someone can endure the hardest or not. Never give up, keep challenging is what I keep in mind for daily self-discipline.
No one else can beat us in micro bending, the art of bending for extremely small Rs. Bending technology in three dimensions, called 3D bending, is an art that our company developed over the last 20 years. The natural trend in the industry now is to leave tough bending to Toko. This leads to confidence in the engineers. However, we will never remain satisfied with what we can do now but will keep studying for a much higher bending art.
While research and technology development is an endless encounter with difficulties, our attitude is to accept the challenge of seeking new discoveries in evolution without fear of failure—never giving up. The president and the chief at headquarters have the same idea to enlarge the company.
While human resources for “tuning” departments to match the gauges supplied by customers in the process of designing, NC machining, assembly, and adjustment is not nationwide; consequently, Toko Mfg. is committed to support the Japanese concept of monozukuri (creation) by fostering human resources with such skills.
