New Year Greetings

Bringing in 2017, the year of the rooster, I would like to extend my New Year greetings to everyone.

Thanks to all of you our company was able to clear what might be called one life, or 60 years. This year thus marks the beginning of our next 60 years.

In Japan we have converged our technological advancements in mold design, die casting, and plating to master the production of super thin heat sink fins with an edge thickness of 0.5mm, a taper of 0.5 degrees, a depth of 45mm, and 95% emissivity. We have also mastered highly efficient precision die casting of tiny zinc products.

We have organized the integrated production systems at our 3 Vietnamese sites of mold production, die cast, and surface treatment (plating and coating), as well as extending the capabilities of our Thailand facilities to include pressure resistant products (transmission pumps, car compressor housings, etc) and thin walled heat sinks (LED head lamps, etc).

This year we are working to further improve our technological capabilities in regards not only to thin walled, lightweight, and pressure resistant products, but to challenge ourselves to achieve a higher quality, with even the most difficult of industry items. We have eagerly readied our facilities for the high quality mass production of products we are especially experienced with including CVT valve bodies, valve sleeves, and heat counter-measuring heat sinks both in Japan and overseas. We are also furthering our development of heat sinks with extremely thin fins, like the wings of a bird, designed for greater heat emission.

In Vietnam we are improving not only our aluminum and zinc die casting technologies, but also high quality plating (Zn, Ni, PTFE, rigid chrome, Cu/Ni/Cr, etc) and coating (cation electrodeposition, anion electrodeposition, solvent baked paint, etc) for interior and design products. Combined with our well organized system of assembly, experienced in exporting products from pressed, rubber, lost wax, and other metal components, we are ready to take on all forms of customer requests.

We, the Akiba Die Casting Group, send a prayer for the good health of all, hoping to prosper alongside our esteemed customers, and to garner their continued patronage.

2015 New Year's Greeting

 Happy New Year.

 I would like to thank everyone for their continuing support.

 With an obligation to meet the needs of our customers we have put significant effort into our manufacturing venue expansion and overseas related technology now supporting the technological development foundations at our head offices. With investments in 3 companies within Japan, and 4 more overseas (Thailand and Vietnam) amounting to 7 companies total, we have built a global establishment which takes into account risk management for disaster and global changes in dies, manufacturing, machining, and plating. This all I consider as a gift from the guidance of our customers and partners.

 From here on, more than ever before I hope this all to serve as strength in answering the needs of all. We look forward to a year full of new die casting requests.

From the President


Thai Akiba Co., Ltd. operations begin

On March 31, we held an opening ceremony and began operations at our manufacturing center in Thailand: Thai Akiba Co., Ltd., which was established in April 2011. In conjunction with the two sites in Vietnam, we are expanding our die cast design and global supply services our customer with complementary systems that span Japan, Thailand and Vietnam.


We are currently accepting applications for die casting production engineers/technicians.

In order to increase die casting production technology in Japan, we are aggressively engaged in improving the manufacturing of equipment and die cast elemental technology. We are currently accepting applications for die casting technicians , or technicians/engineers skilled in equipment manufacturing technology, casting technology or metal machining technology. For all potential candidates, please contact the General Affairs Department directly or via email from the "Contact us" page.


The Vietnam site operations for global supply began July 2010.

Our company completed planning for the manufacturing centers in Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City and tỉnh Bình Dương) for die cast parts and die casting dies, and mass production operations began July 2010.

At present, our equipment manufacturing base includes four machines for aluminum die casting (500 ct: qty.1, 350 ct: qty. 1, 250ct: qty. 2 and 135 ct: qty.1) three zinc die casting machines (160 ht: qty.1, 60 ht: qty.1 and 20 ht: qty.1) and one die casting die manufacturing system. And, in order to continue to expand our manufacturing base to support the global supply needs of our customers, we are making arrangements to develop our equipment manufacturing line even further.


We are global leaders in parts manufacturing using die casting and gravity casting on ALSiC-MMC (45% SiC content), which is lightweight and has high rigidity, high thermal conductivity and low thermal expansion.

Akiba Die Casting has begun a new business in ALSiC-MMC (aluminum silicon carbide metal matrix composite) die casting, large product casting and sheet forming.

ALSiC-MMC has been used as a raw material for more than twenty five years. Regardless of its excellent characteristics, it is generally only used in extremely specialized applications due to its high material costs and restricted machining usability.

We have been engaged in a joint research project with a materials manufacturer for 3 years, and we now lead the world in die casting with a high SiC content of 45%, that has been unattainable up until now.

As a material with a high SiC content, it has the following features:

(1) 2.4 times the coefficient of elasticity for high strength aluminum alloy (Young's modulus)

(2) Same level of high thermal conductivity as aluminum

(3) 2/3 lower thermal expansion coefficient than copper

(4) Abrasion resistance that exceeds cast iron (sliding abrasion)

(5) Same low density as aluminum alloy

Due to the excellent features of this material combined with our excellent die casting methods for mass production, we are developing trial manufacturing supplies for the market in applications for precision systems, structure materials and jigs (low thermal expansion, high rigidity and lightweight) such as robots and semiconductor fabrication systems, heatsinks that bond directly with ceramic substrates, abrasion resistant materials (high thermal conductivity, high rigidity and sliding abrasion resistance) for metal substrates (thermal deformation and stress control, high thermal conductivity), security parts (high strength and abrasion resistance), dampening parts (high attenuation) and brake rotors, etc.

We are currently receiving business inquiries from major electric appliance and automotive manufacturers that are global leaders.
