Advantages and uniqueness of Kobayashi electric CNC servo powder presses
Kobayashi is the pioneer for electric CNC servo powder presses:
The first electric powder press was developed and sold in 1992. In Germany, it was only 17 years later, in 2009, that Kobayashi started to develop and build electric CNC servo powder presses.
Over 30 years of experience in powder technology:
Kobayashi has optimized the electric metal powder presses into high-precision production machines during this long production period. For example, the individual parts and components of the CNC servo presses use materials optimized for their intended use.
Kobayashi is a healthy size and owner-operated company:
Kobayashi has approximately 250 employees in the powder press area, and a total of 800 employees in four core companies with the areas of tool making, metal processing and electric CNC servo powder presses.
Kobayashi comes from a toolmaking background:
As a result, Kobayashi knows what is important in mechanical engineering. The machines are virtually developed around the tools. Over 30 years of experience have optimized Kobayashi's electric metal powder presses into high-precision production machines.
High vertical range of manufacture:
The machines are manufactured with extreme precision and rigidity. The high-precision mechanical engineering and the precisely operating motors result in an extremely long service life. Less wear, less maintenance - the machines are very precise for a long time. Special innovations in the area of tools, such as the Air Flush System for the tools, contribute significantly to the outstanding longevity and precision of the systems.
Proprietary software and many years of know-how in the field of CNC axis control:
High-precision motors and maximum machine rigidity meet precise axis control. Another advantage of years of experience is that the software, the HMI has grown and optimized. Each customer receives the optimal operating concept based on the intuitive Kobayashi software. The entire machine is operated via only three central screens, which display the entire process clearly and holistically. The simple, clear and intuitive operation drastically reduces errors
Less wear, less maintenance, less energy consumption:
The systems are very precise for a long time. Customers of ppw confirm this time and again. Our customers also always confirm the low energy consumption of the systems. They speak of great cost savings.
ppw speaks and thinks Japanese:
ppw has been in good contact with Japanese companies for decades.
ppw has been the exclusive Kobayashi partner in Europe for over 10 years:
ppw has a large number of installations in the field with Kobayashi. Customers confirm the longevity of Kobayashi presses time and again.
Everything from a single source:
ppw is able to provide the complete range of installation, commissioning and service at the customer's site. Electrics, mechanics, training and maintenance, as well as extensive rebuilds at the customer's site are all carried out by ppw.
Very close contact with Kobayshi:
ppw's close contact with Kobayashi, with Japanese-speaking staff on ppw's side, is a great advantage.
The Akita Specialists - a short portrait of the company
Always on the pulse of time!
The customer part in focus!
Since its foundation in 1952, Kobayashi Industry has been growing to meet the technical challenges posed by its well-known customers with their products.
Starting from the component, the tool shop is the heart of the development. Requirements for manufacturing processes and production machines are defined by the tool.
With this philosophy, the wide range of products and services grew.
Today, about 220 highly qualified specialists work in the 2 divisions toolmaking and pressmaking. 4 other specialized companies with a total of about 800 employees belong to the KOBAYASHI group of companies. Among them is the toolmaking company KOBAYAHSI KANAGATA in Thailand, which was founded in 2015.
The company is certified in the standards
- ISO 9001
- ISO 14001
Since 2011 ppw Handel is the official importer for Europe.
Skills and commitment
Continuous development requires capable, experienced employees.
In an environment where a few µ of a mm are decisive for success or failure, mastering the latest production machines and processes is essential.
The know-how is in-house and stays in-house!
The high vertical range of manufacture in our own company is a core component of quality. The short line between development, construction and production is exceptionally good.
Always to the advantage of the customer!
Another outstanding characteristic of the company is the readiness to face challenges.
For example, requirements of the European market have been grasped and implemented in record time.
