The Welding Division at Shinsho Corporation supports a diverse range of manufacturing industries. In particular in recent years, we have been active in fulfilling welding requirements in projects in Thailand and other ASEAN countries, China and other locations overseas. In addition to welding materials we supply equipment such as welding robot systems and automated welding plant in comprehensive proposals for our customers.
The Welding Division supplies welding materials used on site in industries such as shipbuilding and construction, construction machinery and vehicle manufacturing, and at generating stations and chemical engineering plants. We also supply welding-related equipment such as welding robot systems. A characteristic feature of our business is our comprehensive approach putting together welding materials with automated systems for a complete advanced package.
Shinsho’s greatest strength lies in our affiliation with Kobe Steel, one of Japan’s leading companies. We supply some 800 welding-related branded items produced by Kobe Steel, and with our detailed technical support and capability to meet customers’ requirements, we are in a preeminent position in the high value-added business. The Welding Division of Shinsho Corporation directs efforts to technical projects in which we can rapidly assess needs with the necessary technical know-how that has grown out of manufacturing, and offer realistic proposals matched to the application.
One foreseeable trend in the Japanese market is the growth in demand for construction for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games and related growth in demand for welding for steel frame construction. Fulfilling these requirements will be vital for the expansion of the Welding Division. Overseas, we see greater importance in the future in our long-term relations with customers to whom we supply welding equipment and robots, and provide maintenance.
Shinsho currently places priority on setting up maintenance networks for our overseas locations. In Thailand, for example, we have a maintenance department set up within Thai Escorp Ltd. and we are building trust with our customers through regular checks and repairs of their equipment. We plan to extend such activities in the future, not just throughout the Asian region but also to North, Central and South America.
Kobe Steel welding materials we supply cover some 800 different branded items, from shielded metal arc welding rods to wire and flux for automated or semi-automated welding, and are widely acclaimed as technically sophisticated products suited to all welding needs.
Welding equipment generates the arc necessary for welding. We handle many different types including shielded metal arc welding and CO² arc welding kits.
Welding robot systems offer personnel-free welding for steel frame construction, bridge beams, construction machinery and others. The fast and stable-quality welding our systems offer can meet the most complex user requirements.
Laser equipment for cutting and welding. This is a noted new welding method and the market is expected to grow.
Raw materials such as minerals, various metals, alloys, etc. needed to manufacture welding materials are procured worldwide.
