Kikuchi-Tool & Die Processing
The tool & die production technology is one of the core technologies that Kikuchi has developed and refined since its founding. All processes can be handled in-house, from design tailored to the characteristics of different materials to production. At Kikuchi, tools & dies for thin metal-sheet press volume production are manufactured internally. One of the strengths of the Company is that it has accumulated the metal-sheet press technologies needed to respond to customer needs for high levels of quality for exterior and interior equipment, including office equipment, telecommunications equipment, and cameras. Kikuchi has earned high marks from its customers for its tool & die processing for deep-drawn metal-sheet products and for insert mold products (involving integral compound molding of the metal sheet and plastic resin). These tools and dies are considered to be some of the most challenging to manufacture.
