Total Engineering

Leading-edge Precision Forging Technology

In addition to its main business of die-making, NICHIDAI provides total support services for the business solution of its customers from the process design using the CAE analysis system it installed earlier than its competitors in the industry to prototyping with its own press. NICHIDAI’s engineering team is working on the research on precision-forging and forging die technologies and the improvement of its technical capability.
To meet various needs related to precision forging, the company has built up its proprietary development support system that allows the acceptance of orders from development to mass production and is working on the development of a navigation system for the design of forging dies that is intended to convert implicit knowledge to explicit knowledge, store its know-how, and inherit its technologies.

Overview of NICHIDAI’s Development Support System

As a partner of its customers, NICHIDAI supports their product development in addition to the manufacturing and sales of dies for them and provides its precision forging technologies from their development to mass production stages.
