WHAT MAKES US BETTER THAN OTHER MANUFACTURERS?

Subtractive Manufacturing + Additive Manufacturing

The most comprehensive range of precision metalworking services

Subtractive manufacturing techniques such as cutting, grinding, and electrical machining are fine for producing to design drawings, but they are not suitable for the complex shapes and weight restrictions of today’s topological designs.
Conversely, additive manufacturing technologies like 3D printing can be used to fabricate complex components that would normally be assembled from multiple parts.
At Ifuku Seimitsu, we can call on both technologies to ensure you get the best products to suit your requirements.
Unlike some manufacturers, which lack the metalworking expertise needed to remove the support structures that remain on a newly printed 3D item and simply leave it up to the client to arrange that process themselves, we are able to complete your products in house.
