  • Summary:
    With an unchallenged efficiency of nearly 6 times the one of similar equipment on the market, this Japanese manufacturer of load cell sensors, force indicators and torque sensors is seeking distribution partners or commercial agents in the Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Spain and the UK to help its expansion on the mentioned countries. It is the first company in the world to produce force indicators with measurement ability of force vs. displacement.
  • Description:
    A Japanese measuring instruments manufacturer is seeking distribution partners or commercial agents in the Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Spain and the United Kingdom.

    The Japanese company manufactures load cells, torque sensors, force indicators and other measuring instruments since 1970. They are well recognised in the sector of automotive, home appliances and parts manufacturing industries. It is especially well recognised in the process of assembling parts, conducting durability test and quality assurance check.

    They are offering load cell sensors, force indicators and torque sensors to the potential partners who would be working together to develop further business in the European market.

    - Load cells, sensors used to measure weight or force
    The line-up of these strain gauge load cells ranges from tension, compression types to compact sizes & high rigidity type load cells. As part of force control in press fitting of two components, load cells measure compressive and tension force accurately.

    - Force indicators, display devices with various functions, connected to load cells
    There are numerical indicators that only display measured values, touch panel devices with waveform displays and handheld indicators. From the measured data, force indicators allow immediate judgement for any faultiness.

    - Torque sensors, used to detect torque applied to rotating shafts
    Strain gauge rotary torque sensors with embedded amplifier to measure torque during rotation. Torque sensors have been trustworthy with its detailed measurement of torsion produced in a motor performance test.

    Their targeted market in Europe will be machine builders and end-users such as automotive manufacturers, parts manufacturers, research associations, etc.

    The Japanese company is looking for distribution partners who already have business relationships in the sector of automotive, home appliances and customers with equivalent needs in their respective countries.

    The potential partners should be promoting products & services to local companies and multinational corporations. Ideally, the partners have sufficient technical background to develop their business and to provide necessary support to their clients in Europe.

    Because of the nature of the products which require periodically maintenance, a long-term partnership under a distribution or commercial agreement is expected.
Partner Sought
  • Type of Partnership Considered:
    Distribution services agreement, Commercial agency agreement
  • Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:

    The Japanese company is looking for distribution partners or commercial agents who have experience and knowledge in automotive industries or related fields with similar needs.

    Partners should have sales channels with automotive manufacturers, parts manufacturers, home appliances or other fields with equivalent needs. Having technical background would be ideal, while working together to expand distribution channels by developing new demands.

  • Development stage:
  • IPR Status:
  • Market keywords:
    Industrial measurement and sensing equipment
  • Technology keywords:
  • NACE keywords:
    Manufacture of instruments and appliances for measuring, testing and navigation
  • Advantages and Innovations:
    The Japanese company is the first to produce force indicators with measurement ability of force versus displacement, being trusted not only by Japanese automotive manufacturers but also by other multinational corporations. All measuring instruments are made in Japan.

    The force indicators are made with uniquely developed specifications, for example unmatchable fast processing speed up to 25,000 times/second, high accuracy of 0.02%, and SD card (secure digital memory card) storage options up to 160,000 waveforms for the purpose of root cause analysis and improvement of equipment.

    The manufacturing of the load cells are not focused on the accuracy, but also ensuring a safe overload and high responsivity up to 116kHz, thus enabling high quality measurements unlike no other.

    Regular load cells on the market provide a safe overload of 150% and are easily broken while the Japanese company one can sustain a safe overload up to 500%, making them virtually unbreakable load cells and allowing consistent usage while maintaining highly accurate force measurement.

    The company has been a technology pioneer in developing torque sensors with the aim to increase efficiency and quality assurance of industrial automation, and has received a “Tokyo Venture Technology Award” for their achievements.

    These all-in-one torque sensors are incomparable with conventional products as they feature high accuracy of 0.03% (while shaft type torque sensors have a typical accuracy of 0.2%) and a safe overload of 500%, light weight and compact size.

    These performances contributing therefore to technological innovation in energy saving and efficiency improvement of engines, motors, and generators.
