While as from 1st of April 2015 Mitsubishi Materials Corporation (MMC) holds a 51% stake in Hitachi Tool Engineering, the new brand name, MOLDINO and logo were created. MOLDINO is a combination of the words MOLD + DIE + INNOVATION.
This name stresses the effort to be an innovator with a specialization in the die and mold industry, based on own research and development as well as own production and application support at customers worldwide. “MOLDINO is a statement of our clear focus for the future and also summarizes the way in which we’ve been operating for decades,” states a company spokesperson.
“Our customers face their global competition on a daily basis and are required to produce molds and dies with increasing speed, precision and quality. In consequence of this reality, our engineers are applying and implementing our cutting tools in customer’s processes. In doing so, we are focusing on achieving highest levels of process safety and repeatability, while striving for opportunities in terms of standardization. We always have standardized automated processes in mind that prepare our customers for the (industry 4.0) future.
“However, nowadays it is not enough to simply introduce another cutting tool into an existing process. In order to significantly reduce production time and costs it is necessary to analyse and adjust the entire process chain from start to finish: CAD, CAM programming and toolpaths, tool selection, production and programming strategies, machine selection, tool and workpiece clamping plus cooling, cutting parameters as well as chip evacuation need to be taken into account in order to achieve optimal results. Our growing number of application engineers aims to provide customers with this full service approach,” he points out.
Under the new MOLDINO brand name and logo, Mitsubishi Hitachi Tool Engineering is following its proven concept, while extending it even further with the current and future needs of the die and mold sector in mind.
Mitsubishi Hitachi Tool Engineering is one of Japan’s leading tool manufacturers. The company’s business has been focused on tool and mould construction for decades, developing a considerable tool range that covers the entire process chain.
