We often receive inquiries for products that are not commonly available on the market. Special flexible metal hoses are one such example. Upon client’s request, our import & export division contacts overseas manufactures with the aim of reducing product price.
Metal surface treatment Surface modification, abrasion-resistant, pre-coat treatment
We offer the best suited surface treatment for each client’s needs such as the improvement of abrasion-resistance, thermal tolerance, among others. Following are some of our services: DLC (diamond like carbon) coating to improve the wear resistance of sliding parts; composite treatment (nitriding/ceramic coating) to improve the life of the mold; precoat treatment to prevent loosening of screws, etc.
In 1982, we entered into a sole agency contract with RIFOX (Germany) for the Japanese market. RIFOX drain traps feature the float mechanism for condensate discharge without compressed air losses, which was rare in Japan at that time. From then until now, the products have been highly reputed for their signature mechanism. Their simple structure enables long product life and low energy loss. RIFOX drain traps are commonly used for not only factory equipment but also peripheral equipment of large marine engines. We see these products as key items in our commitment to SDGs.
