Committed original technology
Tsudakoma started in 1909. We continue the innovation in textile machinery which led the Industrial Revolution. Our high-speed jet looms, which dominate the main products of the textile machinery division, have been delivered to more than sixty countries all over the world. Tsudakoma is assessed as a top brand in the world. In the machine tool division, Tsudakoma developed dividing heads, machine vises, NC rotary tables, and milling heads since it started in 1937. High accuracy, high speed, high rigidity, and a variety of products contribute to a wide range of manufacturing in the world including the automotive, electronics and energy industries. Our high-end NC rotary table has the biggest market share in Japan.
In 2008, Tsudakoma developed the first automatic lay-up machine for carbon prepreg in Japan. A slitter designed for prepreg was produced in 2010, and a drape forming machine was produced in 2011. The tension control technology developed for textile machinery and the positioning control technology for machine tool attachments were applied to the composite machinery. As a result, we cleared the exacting quality test of aircraft manufacturers. Also, our products have been field proven in Japan. In 2013, Tsudakoma completed a new automatic lay-up machine with enhanced versatility, achieving a machine lineup for automated compoiste processing solution.
