Sumitomo Electric Hardmetal Corp. (president: Nozomi Ushijima/head office: 1-1-1, Koyakita, Itami, Hyogo) established "Tokai Tool Engineering Center" (hereinafter called T-TEC) in the wholly-owned subsidiary, Tokai Sumiden Precision Co., Ltd., in October.

Now we are providing "tool engineering services" in general including "line diagnosis" and "tooling proposals" performed by visiting cutting tool users as well as "knowledge", "test cutting", "technical consultation" etc. performed in the tool engineering centers(TEC) in Yokohama-Kanagawa, Itami-Hyogo, and Naie-Hokkaido. The TECs with the latest machine tools, analysis/measuring machines, seminar rooms, etc. and dedicated staff have gotten favorable comments from customers as bases to provide our tool engineering services.
