DNA of "Made in Japan" sprit
In order to enhance competitiveness and product
quality, Made-in-Japan machine tools
are predominantly selected by various companies and research
institutes around the
Why do they select Made-in-Japan products?
Behind this, there is DNA of "Monozukuri"-Craftmanship sprit,
inherited from the past.
The origin of DNA can be traced back 400 years.
In Japan at the time, the Edo-bakufu (government) was newly
established and ruled the
country in peace without war for about the next 260 years.
During the Edo period, at Terakoya (literally means temple
school) played a major role in
education of children. The education at Terakoya included
"reading, writing, and
abacus (arithmetic)", and "pursuit of perfection in handicraft
(manual dexterity) " on the
basis of gentle humanity in terms of morale obligation and
compassion for others. Such
education was offered for quite a long time which cannot be
found anywhere in the world.
It's not too much to say that in this way the education has
been passed down to today's
generation as Japanese DNA.
This long period of peace was made possible due to the geographic
condition of Japan
which made the country immune to the influence of foreign
countries. On the other hand,
during that period Japan lagged far behind other countries
in technological innovation
improved so rapidly.
In 1868, Japan was eventually forced to open up the country
by the pressure of Europe
After that, Japan was intensely dedicated to catching up with
the Western technologies
that were overwhelmingly advanced. And the country went through
a series of
dramatic events to become what it is now.
Made-in-Japan machine tools
Products are generally divided into two categories: "producer
goods" and "consumer
goods." A machine tool is classified as "producer goods."
The number of "producer
goods"manufactured is extremely smaller than that of "consumer
goods." They are not
suitable for mass-production. Metal working parts are most
commonly used as materials
for the machine tools. The more precision for machine tools,
the more precision for the
metal working parts.
High-precision is required for the machine tools produced
by small-quantity production.
so suitable production areas for machines are limited to certain
As machine tools need to be made with special handcrafted
cares, machine tool makers
especially need cooperation from neighboring companies with
technology in processing metal.
In this way, Japanese machine tool makers are usually surrounded
by a group of
cooperating companies with superior DNA capable of supplying
unique working parts..
That is why Made-in-Japan products are definitely chosen around
