The rhythm of the machinery keeps the time at this metal stamping factory. Many tons of pressure produce a constant thud, as single sheets of metal are folded over and over to make complex parts. The sound is sampled to lend depth to the finished track. The sounds are subdued to achieve a more somber tone. This track could be labeled as something of a “Dark side of Gonno”.
This is the most powerful press machine at Shin Ei Industry. The L joints used in storage shelves are created using this machine.
The moment of production of two components simultaneously. Only one metal plate is used. This shape is the result of the repetition of the pressing process.
The metal used as the main production material. These metal plates come rolled up like tape, and are then rolled out, extended and inserted into the machine.
Before entering the press the material is a single flat sheet. Complex parts are formed by being pressed repeatedly in a single machine. This is known as transfer pressing.
This type of component is made using a single sheet of metal.
Shin Ei Industry was founded in 1979 in Chiba-City, which became a major distribution center with the opening of the Ken-O Expressway. Centring around metal stamp manufacturing, Shin Ei makes metal dies, and provides packaging services as a one-stop manufacturer and shipper. They use surface treatment material, stainless steel, and aluminum between 0.6mm and 3.2mm, to create small batches of many products. They can design metal dies according to “lifelong lots”, devising optimum manufacturing techniques.
