Mr. Inaba as joined Origin Electric Co., Ltd. in April 1997.
He was first assigned to Sales Section at Bearing Dept. (currently named as Motion Techno Dept.).
Then he devoted to cultivating new customers among Domestic as well as oversea manufacturers of Office Automation Machines and ATM machines, and he further acted as a marketing representative of new products.
Currently, he is assigned to Assistant Manager of Engineering Development section at Motion Techno Dept.
The Motion Technologies Department got its start as the Miniature Precision Bearing Department. After that, they transferred their core business to the development and manufacturing of precision machinery parts, based on the technology they had cultivated in miniature precision bearings. Based on tribological technology, Origin develops unique, high-quality machinery parts that are superior to those of the competitors—from parts that rotate smoothly to parts that generate high torque... to parts that have mechanisms you'd never imagine.
*Tribology: the science and technology that includes all phenomenon occurring when two surfaces that are in relative motion influence each other when they come into contact
We've developed and marketed products such as an interactive clutch lock type (that rotates from the input side, but locks from the opposite side), a one-way clutch (which locks in one direction and rolls in the opposite direction) and a torque limiter (which precisely controls the rotation torque). We have an especially large share in the fields of copiers and devices used in the financial world, thanks to the great acclaim we have enjoyed from the market. We are also developing unique products that meet the needs of the market.
In consideration of customer demands and the environment, our major product, the torque limiter, is becoming gradually smaller and lighter, with a longer lifespan. For this reason, many of our torque limiters are maintenance-free (depending on usage), and the frequency of replacement has been considerably reduced when used as replacement parts. Also, our new product, the interactive clutch, makes electromagnetic clutches unnecessary, contributing to higher quality and conservation of energy.
Motion Techno Dept. is to design, develop and manufacture small precision machinery parts such as “One-way Clutch”, “Torque Limiter”, “Interactive Clutch”, and other special bearing. Our marketing share for these products have progressively increased meeting with recent marketing needs.
This is because our development skill, quality control, and cost performance are well accepted to the market.
We are striving for developing useful products listening to our customers’’ needs.
