On October 2, 2017, Takisawa Machine Tool held a ceremony for the completion of the fifth plant (=photo) and started operation on the same day. The fifth factory was constructed on two stories and invested approximately 800 million yen. Kazuhiro Harada, president of Takisawa Machine Tool, said, “for the time being we received very strong orders in the second half of this fiscal year. Work hard on manufacturing and make an effort not to come out injuries at the new plant,” he said.
The fifth factory mainly assembles production lines for turnkey projects. In the past, the turnkey project was built at the first factory, but it was expanded because it became narrower. The planned monthly production will be increased by about 10 units, and the production capacity of the head office factory as a whole will be improved by about 20%.
To increase production efficiency, supply parts from the parts center directly connected to the second floor and assemble the unit on the second floor. Final assembly and shipment on the first floor.
Jyunji Matsubara,managing director of manufacturing and purchasing says, “it was the first in-house plant to assemble divide into two floors, and we want to shorten the production lead times.” In addition, the advanced equipment such as software for controlling the progress of the process was introduced.
