The Technologies of Sabae

Swaging

To increase strength and toughness of metals.A technique used for metal optical frame, medical devices and fashion accessories.

  • CHARMANT

Swaging

Swaging is used to beat and stretch round wire into any shape under room-temperature conditions without scraping it.This technique stretches thick wires into thin ones, so it is useful in producing integral pieces with both thick and thin parts.

  • TITANIUM CREATER FUKUI

Pressing

To form components, using metal mold. Accurate dimensions and configuration can be created by the computerized pressing processes.

  • TITANIUM CREATER FUKUI

Bending

To form a shape of rim wires that hold the lens of eyeglass, various configuration can be made by 3D bending processes.

  • CHARMANT

Bending(Coiling)

Round wires are bent in three dimensions and coiled into complex shapes using original technologies.

  • HOKURIKU BENDING

Precision Machining

In precision cutting, metals are processed using lathes, cutting equipment and dedicated processing machinery. Parts with diameters as small as 1.6mm can be processed using this approach.

  • FUKUOKA RASHI

Precision Machining

In this technology, metal is cut using dedicated processing equipment. It is applied to serve a wide range of applications, including medical components, painting equipment and industrial equipment requiring high-precision suction nozzles.

  • TEGA SEIKO

Precision Machining

Precision metal processing is a cutting technology that uses numerically controlled (NC) lathes. It is used to produce small-diameter parts from 1mm to 20mm.

  • NISHIMURA

Cutting(Laser cutting)

This technology uses laser processing equipment to cut and form holes. Laser cutting delivers smooth cut lines even with the most complex shapes.

  • K-TEC

Cutting(Water-jet cutting)

This technology uses nothing but jets of super-pressurized water to cut soft, flat materials into the desired shapes. NC is used to cut even complex shapes with high precision.

  • K-TEC

Joining(Laser micro welding)

An advanced technology developed in collaboration with the Joining & Welding Research Institute of Osaka University.Microscopic irradiation allows fine welding of extremely small components.

  • CHARMANT

Joining(Laser micro welding)

In this technology, laser light is focused on metal work pieces to perform local joining. Unlike welding with a soldering iron, no flame is used. Oxidation is thus eliminated, reducing postprocessing after welding.

  • HOKURIKU BENDING

Surface treatment(Ion plating, Electro Corting)

Ion plating is a technology in which the surface of a titanium alloy or the like is coated under vacuum conditions. This processing makes the surface of the metal resistant to scratches, abrasion and tearing, enhancing corrosion- and weather-resistance.

  • EYETEC

Surface treatment(Laser marking)

This process technology is an environmentally friendly direct-marking method that uses no ink or printing materials. Marking is contactless, preventing degradation of materials.

  • K-TEC

Surface treatment(Color laser process)

A nanometer-level oxidized film is formed on the surfaces of metals such as titanium. The oxidized film reflects incident light to cause interference, generating a wide variety of colors on the surface.

  • HOKURIKU BENDING

Surface treatments

A coating technique that electrically applies to protect the product.

  • CHARMANT

Lens Manufacturing

Hopnic Laboratory Co., Ltd. produces high-refractive-index polarized lenses and photochromatic lenses. In high-refractive-index polarized lenses, the company enjoys global No. 1 market share. Its lenses are adoppted in the sunglasses of producers throughout Japan and around the world.

  • HOPNIC LABORATORY

Finishing

In addition to machine processes, skilled experts take care of every detail of finish process to complete the production.

  • CHARMANT
