Fukui Factory (Fukui Office)
This plant was built in 1980 as a manufacturing center in the Hokuriku area on the Japan seaside.
Starting with manufacturing, this plant has various departments, such as Design, Research & Development, Manufacturing engineering, Training center, Application, Measurement room, Purchase department, etc. These different departments at the same site help to shorten the lead time from designing to testing the completed machines to meet with the rapidly changing industrial society. The production line is arranged in the buildings and designed not to be affected by external temperature change, such as solar temperature rise or winter coldness, which is suitable for manufacturing high-end machines.
Besides EDMs, this plant also has manufacturing facilities for High Speed Milling and a stockyard for KHS consumables.
