Market globalization has been evolving rapidly according to the advancement of the internet, as information regarding high quality products and state-of-art technologies are now available
throughout the globe instantaneously.
Also, industrial arenas are under pressure for diversification, differentiation, and cost
reduction. These trends have led demands in our market for continuation of diversification,
The City of Higashi-Osaka, the hometown of Sugimura Manufacturing Company has
grown as a prospering region for manufacturing. The oldest record of such activity is well
known back into the 4th century A.D. The activity has been inherited to date as a very valuable tradition, making the region continue to be active on manufacturing. By being nurtured in this prestigious environment, we have achieved 70 years of corporate history. The region hosts
many enterprises engaging in precision works in area of metals and other materials with
prominent technologies in their hands. One of the strengths that Sugimura is proud to offer is
to provide solutions to the customers’ demands by tapping technologies of the enterprises that we are keeping in close touch with.
Sugimura offers solutions tailored to every aspect of customers’ demands promptly
with its expertise in roll workings. Sugimura owns variety of the state-of-art roll working and
polishing facilities to achieve such demands. Every kinds of manufacturing facility face a risk
of being forced to halt their production lines once their rolls are damaged by malfunctions.
Sugimura is maintaining a high state of readiness for expedited response to urgent call by
customers facing such problem. Sugimura has firmly supported customers for restoring their
facilities in minimal down time for numerous occasions.
Sugimura also has strength on cost reduction and shortening of lead time, which are
enabled by conducting multiple processes of manufacturing at one single factory. For example, our Fukushima factory has capability of roll polishing while other processes such as shaft
repair and maintenance of suction roll cell also can be done at the same factory, thus reduce
cost, risk, and time waste which can be caused by transportation between workshops. At
Kanagawa factory, balance adjustment can be done along with roll polishing. In addition to
perform multiple processes under one single roof, Sugimura applies techniques so as to avoid
unnecessary cut as much as possible in the roll polishing process, and also extend lifetime of
the rolls by maintaining wall thickness using “groove tracing” and other techniques. These
techniques contribute to customer satisfactions by realizing cost reduction.
Each and every roll working is tailored to meet the demands unique to each
customer. Mirror finishing is made in the highest degree of accuracy. Furthermore, in crown
treatments, the curving can be done not only in quadratic or quartic, but also, in free curving.
Other technique such as polishing of the crown control and heated polishing with precision
polishing that corresponds to high operation temperature are also available. Sugimura is proud to offer these solutions in diverse and flexible manner. In addition, Sugiyama also has its
specialty in roll finishing of a unique configuration such as specially shaped roll.
Sugiyama will continue to meet the customers’ individual and high expectation. Such commitment will be achieved by surface fabrication of the roll technology that was nurtured
throughout its corporate history with further development of its uniqueness and creativeness.
