History of "Monozukuri" (Manufacturing)

Automatic Wire Processor

1956

In 1956, the first wire stripper in Japan was produced in response to requests from major electric appliance manufacturers.

  • First generation from 1956 Cam Link Type

    This ground-breaking equipment automatically cut wire at a constant length, and performed the stripping process of the sheathing on both ends.

    In addition to the stripping process, the "twisting" process of the wires could also be performed automatically.

    First Automatic Wire Processor

    Both-ends crimping machine which performed the stripping and crimping of terminals on both ends of a wire.

  • Along with the economic growth, the production volume of home appliances and automobiles increased rapidly, and the demand for automatic wire processors which are indispensable for processing wires used in such products also increased. While responding to the demands of customer's, various types of related equipment were also added to the lineup which grew into core products.

  • Second generation from around 1974 Roller Feed Method

    Both-ends crimping machine which uses a roller to feed wire by MCU operation. Series equipped with single-end twist and single-end soldering functions was released.

    Second generation from around 1974

    Wire stripper which uses a roller to feed wire by MCU operation.

    Second generation from around 1974
  • Third generation from 1989 DC Servo - Orthogonal

    The adoption of new servo control greatly improved the positioning accuracy during the wire processing.

    Third generation from 1989
  • Along with the rapid dissemination of the internet, we developed a model capable of processing super-fine wires and short wires used for compact electronic devices, including laptops and mobile phones. The development of the overseas market for wire harnesses of automobiles also started in earnest around this time.

  • Fourth generation from 2000 AC Servo - Orthogonal
    Developed both-ends crimping machine for fine wires "TR201" (2000)
    Developed both-ends crimping machine "TRD301" (2003)

    Realized even higher speeds and higher precision processing. Fastest process completed in 0.85 seconds.

  • Fifth generation from 2005 Belt Feed Swivel Type
    Developed both-ends crimping machine "TRD510" (2015)

    Adoption of the newly developed controller and servo motor, further improved the accuracy and speed of the processing. The fastest processing time only took 0.72 seconds (TRD510). The standardly equipped all-sides safety covers, etc. also improved the safety.

    Fifth  generation from 2005

In the future

While the evolution of electronics and electrification of automobiles continues to progress, we will focus on the development of ground-breaking products incorporating the Internet of Things (IoT) aiming to be a "comprehensive manufacturer of wire processors."
