Machine Tools

Machine Tools

Machine tools are also called “mother machine” in the meaning of “the machine for producing various machines”.
For example, an automobile consist of tens of thousands of parts and the machines that produce those tens of thousands parts are machine tools.

We deal with a lot of domestic or international machine tools taking advantage of cutting-edge technologies and are expanding our business in various corporations, including aircraft, semiconductor, and precision measuring equipment manufacturers as well as automobile companies. The business fields are also growing mainly in emerging countries. Quite simply, we are developing our business globally. We stretch from sales of various machine tools to domestic sales, export, import, and engineering services of whole systems including peripheral components.

Large machine tools for marine engine manufacturers

We provide large machine tools to marine engine manufacturers. An engine for a large tanker, namely only a single component of parts weights as much as 100 tons. For larger machines, dimensions and superimposed load of a table for workpieces could reach 6 m x 25 m and 300 tons respectively.

Riveter (Broetje, Germany)

Rivet joining technique is inevitable for manufacturing outer panels of aircrafts. Broetje produces a system where punching, inserting rivets, and caulking are conducted in an integrated manner. Recently, while reducing weight of aircrafts, composite materials are increasingly used and Broetje are focusing their effort on developing related equipment thereof.

Industrial Machinery

Industrial machinery

Industrial machinery covers a wide range of machines including paper/board making machine, metal/film/plastic/new material processing machine, semiconductor/liquid crystal related equipment, electronics related equipment, oil/chemical plant equipment, environment/recycling related equipment.

Industry Machinery division uses domestic and international state-of-art technologies and engineering capacity and offers breakthroughs and solutions.

Biaxial of film stretching machine (Bruckner, Germany)

Brückner Maschinenbau is the world's leading supplier of biaxial film stretching machines. Brückner Maschinenbau provides versatile equipment lines from those allowing for mass production of general-purpose films used for food, optical films for display, and in-car secondary cells to those for research and development of films, which are vital for future technology. Their advanced technologies supported by a lot of experiences and results combined with Brückner Servtec’s after sales services will realize higher levels of productivity and entry to new market.

Flexographic printing machine (UTECO, Italy)

This is a high-performance flexographic printing machine manufactured by UTECO whose headquarters is located in Verona, Italy and whose sales results are the best in various countries in the world. In Japan, gravure printing machines using organic solvent are the main stream in the food/sanitary product packaging industries, etc. In Europe and U.S.A., flexographic printing machines that use environmentally-friendly water-based ink account for a large share. We have no doubt that flexographic printing machines using no solvent will attract attention and become widespread in the future in Japan in order to deal with residual solvents problem in food packaging and work environment problem of printing plants.

Melt Filter (Ettlinger, Germany)

This is a filter that removes contaminants from plastic waste (such as plastic household containers and packaging) for recycling. It has a system to stabilize the contaminants to be removed in high concentration and improves quality of the recycled material. This filter is one of the critical machines for a material recycling plant and contributes to a reduction in environmental load by decreasing consumption in resources through reuse of plastic waste.

Woody biomass-fired boiler

In a plant, steam boilers generally use fossil fuel including heavy oil, gas, or coal as a main heat source or for power generation. Use of fossil fuel resulting in emission of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and subsequently leading to a big environmental load has become a problem in recent years. Woody biomass is one of reusable energies and does not increase carbon dioxide when burning. To propose using a woody biomass-fired boiler for a heat source or power generation means to make a great contribution for creating a material-cycle society and then realizing a sustainable world.

Food & Pharmaceutical machinery

Food & Pharmaceutical machinery

The FoodTech Group provide total machinery solution, mainly imported, together with advanced engineering to both domestic and foreign customers who manufacture foods and pharmaceuticals. Highly experienced engineers shall provide after maintenance service locally together with spare parts supply. Various machineries are handled, for example, “filtration machine for beer”, “potato chips manufacturing machine”, “onion skin peeler”, “labor saving automation process”, “mineral water processing machine”, and so on. Especially “filtration machine for beer” and “potato chips manufacturing machine” are adopted by almost every domestic beer manufactures and potato chips customers.

Customized production systems for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries
/ ZETA Biopharma GmbH (Austria)

ZETA is having deep and wide knowledge of processes and process technology for biopharmaceuticals and provides total engineering solution such as Bioreactors & Fermentation Systems, Downstream Systems, Freeze & Thaw Systems, Freeze Container, etc.  Systems are made by stainless steel  to achieve reuse of system and there are a lot of installation history in biopharmaceutical customers in Europe.  ZETA specializes in skid technology. The division of the processing system into discrete modules is already done in the engineering phase. Skid technology has the big advantage that the fabrication and assembly of the processing equipment can be done in ZETA factory at the same time as building works are in progress at the destination, which may be a greenfield or brownfield site. This substantially reduces the project completion time. The ZETA factory provides ideal conditions and facilities for manufacturing high-quality processing systems.

Sorter / Key Technology Inc. (USA)

Key sorters provide superior sorting results as they detect and remove defects and foreign material (FM) based on color, structure, shape, size or biochemical characteristic differences in a single sorting pass.  Processors around the world depend on Key Technology for sorting excellence. It is commonly used by pastry and frozen food industries to sort fruits and vegetables, nuts, dried fruit, fresh-cut produce and more.  For example, it is used  in the large scale production line of potato chips and archive to provide food safety.
