Approach to Implementation
HIROCHIKU makes a set of proposals, ranging from the layout designing to the introduction of equipment, including the new construction of die-casting factories, a review of production processes, and the restructuring of production processes.
Please use sample baking tests (at the RD Center) for research and testing on heat treatment materials, including new materials (e.g., polysilicon, LEDs, lithium-ion batteries, and carbon nanotubes), as well as mass production approaches and equipment tests.
HIROCHIKU offers the best heat treatment equipment through preliminary sample tests for the heat treatment of steel and non-ferrous metals. HIROCHIKU has more than 10 test machines available for technical and equipment proposals.
HIROCHIKU’s maintenance team conducts heat diagnosis, exhaust gas diagnosis, molten metal analysis, and equipment monitoring using the Internet of things (IoT), and provides equipment inspection guidance.
HIROCHIKU offers a heat treatment processing service for heat treatment processes, including those for the continuous brightening annealing and continuous brazing of stainless steel. This is a service to conduct heat treatment on behalf of HIROCHIKU’s plant according to customers’ specifications.
Users can also utilize HIROCHIKU’s plant as a backup factory during their equipment maintenance.
HIROCHIKU has a maintenance team for each of its three brands.
HIROCHIKU places importance on the maintenance service and conducts regular maintenance procedures, which are essential for maintaining performance, avoiding trouble, and enabling customers to use equipment and facilities comfortably.
HIROCHIKU responds flexibly to sudden equipment issues and gives top priority to customer operations for the supply of replacement parts and equipment.
Technical Consultation and Seminar
HIROCHIKU supports the overseas manufacturing bases of domestic companies. HIROCHIKU will introduce various types of melting furnaces and heat treatment equipment and also provide on-site support to them prior to their operation starting.
Furthermore, HIROCHIKU is currently providing extra support to an increasing number of overseas trading companies.
