To extend its marketing into international markets, Shibue Seimitsu Co., Ltd., a specialist in escomatic machining for over 50 years, has appointed Suwa Precision Engineering in Singapore as its sales representative for the overseas markets outside Japan and China.
Established in 1951, Shibue Seimitsu has specialized in escomatic machining of miniature (diameter 0.3 to 6mm) precision complex profile parts with tolerance of +-20 microns parts and burr-free finishes for the electronics and watch industries.
In escomatic machining, as the coil stock is fed through the machine, it is straightened, and then moved into bushings that are the same size as the stock. The bushings support allows the escomatic machine to hold a very tight concentricity for the length of the part. The continuously fed self-straightening coil stock reduces the turning needed to achieve the desired diameter, and also leads to less wasted material, less down-time for reloading and therefore lower cost.
"Escomatic machining has excellent repeatability throughout mass production. Our ISO9001 certified factory operates 24/7 to meet your production requirements with minimal workers. We focus on complex profile escomatic machining of part such as hinge components for cell phones and micro motor shafts, " says Toshiaki Shibue, President of Shibue Seimitsu.
Says Ken Yap, Director of Suwa Precision Engineering "We hope to help Shibue Seimitsu reach out to new customers and even appoint other sales representatives in the States and Europe."
