Transmission parts (automotive parts)

 Transmission parts (automotive parts) Conventional method: Forging + cutting
Our method: Press + roll forming + (cutting)

Kanemitsu has achieved lighter products and cost reductions using a variety of steel plate processing technologies to bring products to market and by creating processes that require no cutting or significantly reduce cutting processes.

only-one

Examples of processes that require no cutting and improve material yield
1.
2. Increasing the thickness of the center boss and outer seal using a press

Airbag components (automotive parts)

エアバッグ用部品Conventional method: Welding two parts together
Our method: Press (thickening)

Kanemitsu has succeeded in integrated boss forming on the airbag inflator from a single thin steel plate, leading to a lighter product, cost reduction and superior quality.

only-one

Using a press to thicken the steel, we have succeeded in integrally forming the center boss on the airbag inflator from a single thin steel plate

Sensor plates (automotive parts)

センサープレートConventional method: Fine blanking + welding
Our method: Press (precision cutting + bending)

We have achieved cost reductions by performing precision cutting of the sensor (external teeth) on a general-purpose press and integrally forming the center boss.

only-one

1. Precision cutting performed on a general-purpose press
2. Thickening the base material to two times its original thickness by using a press to bend and form the center boss on the sensor plate.

Electric power steering parts (automotive parts)

電動パワーステアリング部品(自動車部品)Conventional method: Sintering or casting + cutting
Our method: Press (thickening) + (cutting)

Kanemitsu has achieved lighter products and cost reductions using a variety of steel plate processing technologies to bring products to market and by creating processes that require no cutting or significantly reduce cutting processes.

The center boss (thickening) and external serrations are formed at the same time using a press

Stainless steel chambers (rice cooker parts)

ステンレス容器Conventional method: Press + annealing
Our method: Press + roll forming

Applying roll-forming to form a deep cylindrical shape from a single steel pate, Kanemitsu is able to produce stainless steel chambers used as water evaporation chambers in electronic rice cookers.

only-one

Roll-forming is used to achieve
1. Deep drawing 2. Product surface shine 3. Localized thinning

Pulleys

プーリ Pulleys are used as part of the power train on engines in automobiles, agricultural equipment, ships, etc.
Since developing our roll-forming technologies in 1960, Kanemitsu has continued to provide high quality, light weight and low-cost pulleys in a variety of shapes and for a range of applications to our customers.
