Total support from design to maintenance after installation
The group is developing service locations in the main industrial cities of the world that incorporate regionally-based sales structures and sophisticated engineering functions. We offer total support for everything from the design of lines, etc., to installation of machine tools, to maintenance after installation. As a provider of solutions that are useful to customers, the group contributes to the industrial development of regional societies.
Providing backup for regional societies and industrial development around the world
We are expanding globally in 15 overseas countries / regions, with 17 local subsidiaries and 66 offices. We have showrooms around the globe where customers can see and physically experience machine tools and various other equipment for themselves. There are approximately 1,100 employees of Yamazen group companies working overseas. Of these, approximately 300 are engineers with sophisticated skill sets. We provide a reassuring support structure, extending from proposing products that meet the customer’s requirements, to system design by engineers, to maintenance after installation, and it is this structure that has won the backing of both customers and the manufacturers with which we deal.
Displays at exhibitions around the world
Various local subsidiaries display products at many exhibitions, such as IMTS (United States), METALEX (Thailand) and IMTEX (India). At such events Yamazen staff introduce actual cutting-edge machine tools and peripheral equipment, etc., that have been matched to the needs of local industry.
In addition, we support the bidirectional flow of business between Japan and the rest of the world through such initiatives as support not only for Japanese but also international companies for moves to overseas locations, international procurement of products, parts and materials, and consulting in relation to international transactions, etc.
Proposing automation for a processing line, contributing to reduced labor inputs
A parts processing customer consulted us in relation to their desire to automate a processing line to reduce soaring personnel costs. In response to this we proposed a line that would be unmanned 24 hours a day, and that included everything from supply of parts to the machine to handling after processing. By automating the line, we not only reduced personnel costs, but we also supported the customer business by achieving improvements in production efficiency. Selection of the equipment and cutting tools that made up the line was performed by the local engineering department, and we provided integrated support after the installation of the facilities, in the form of the supply of consumables and maintenance. This means that high-quality machine tools from Japan can be used with confidence even in overseas locations.
