Integration of Technologies and Takumi Expertise


Innovative Power to Respond to New Demands
Extending the Service Life and Stabilizing Performance

Takumi's technique By extending the service life of a die, the unit cost will reduce, the risk of forging press stoppage due to die replacement will be smaller, and the facility utilization will improve. Extending the interval of die replacement also means that there will be less rejected products that are inevitable just before the end of a die's service life.
Stabilizing the die performance makes it possible to predict the time of die replacement. Besides taking pressure off the shoulders of workshop managers, it also eliminates unnecessary storing of dies and creates a leeway in detecting troubles and defects at an early stage.
Furthermore, a synergetic effect of these two improvements appears in the containment of defective and nonconforming products. Factors that contribute to a significant increase in the operational cost, such as product inspection and reproduction, will be eliminated without even noticing, not to mention cases in which defective products lead to damages compensation.

Akamatsu Forsys achieves extended service life and stable performance by forming a mass intelligence to integrate a precision machining system, in which computers and NC machines work together, and die finishing techniques inherited from generations of takumi (masters). The effort has been highly credited by its customers.
