Takada Industries Czech Republic s.r.o.

Takada Industries Czech Republic is a daughter company of the Japanese Takada Industry Inc. We entered the Czech market in 2002 with the goal to satisfy the growing demand of Japanese sub suppliers to the automotive industry, and build up strategic partnerships that we can utilize on the Japanese market as well as on the newly created markets throught the world.


Like the mother company we are involved in the production of injection molded plastic parts mainly for the automotive industry. Requirements for quality and inspection of products are very high in this branch, and experience of the Japanese “mother”, TQM and 5S attitude provide us with a competitive advantage on the Czech market. We have a modern plant in Louny where we use the latest technologies.


Company culture is characterized with a friendly, open and pragmatic attitude of the young team and ability to act quickly given by controlling powers of the only owner, who also holds the post of President of the company. This distinguishes TiCz substantially from other foreign investors in the CR who have more complicated controlling mechanism interlinked with their foreign “mothers”.

Technology

Injection molding

The present production hall in Louny is prepared for 40 pcs of injection molding machines of which 39 pcs are already installed. All our machines are SUMITOMO HEAVY INDUSTRIES, their tonnage ranging from 18 up to 220 tons. Every machine is equipped with a YUSHIN pick-up robot to minimize defects caused by falling products out of the machine. All machines are only electric-driven, which means they are very quick and minimally affect the environment compared to hydraulic machines.
For material (resin) transport and blending we use MOTAN and HELIOS equipment. Mold heating is assured by HB-THERM and REGLOPLAS units.

Tampoprint

Tampoprint is processing on the pneumatic machines TAMPOPRINT – VARIO and electric machines HERMETIK. Just now 6 pcs of printing machines are used.
A printed symbol is transferred from the cliché on the part with help of a silicone tampon. Printed symbols are annealed in the drying kiln at temperature 80 °C. Next process is visual check of the products.
Constant condition (temperature and humidity) must be kept in the tampo printing room to reach the maximal quality of printing.

Laser print

We also have a single-purpose machine for laser print of plastic parts, equipped by a LP-V15 type laser produced by SUNX.

Ultrasonic welding

We also own a sonic welder for plastic part welding from BRANSON.

Measuring, production inspection

We have a well equipped metrological laboratory. Parts are measured on 2D measuring machines as well as 3D measuring machines from MITUTOYO.


Laboratory equipment:

CNC Coordinate measuring machine Crysta Plus 544
CNC Coordinate measuring machine Crysta Plus 766
CNC Optical measuring machine Quick Vision ELF/PRO
Profile projector MITUTOYO PJ3010 F
Formtracer MITUTOYO SV-C 3000S4

To assure stable results of measuring constant conditions (temperature and humidity) are strictly kept in the laboratory.

Quality management


Our company is certified according to ISO 9001 and 14001 standards from May 2004. So far we have been successful in every year’s recertification and due to this we are able to keep a high quality level. We plan certification according to ISO TS 16949 standard in the future, which is becoming a must in the automotive industry. 

Customers

Our main customer is the Japanese company Tokai Rika (TRCZ) Lovosice. We supply plastic parts for wipers, lights and others modules to TRCZ.


Other customers are Aisan Industry Czech (AIC) from Louny and Toyoda Gosei Czech Republic (TGCZ) from Klášterec nad Ohří. For the first named we produce parts for fuel pumps, and for TGCZ we produce parts for fuel tank cups and steering wheels.

Environment

TiCz is very environment conscious. Pollution sources are gas boilers that are used for heating. However, these gas boilers were ranked as small sources of pollution.
We use a very few chemical substances and due this fact the amount of chemical waste is only tens of kilograms per year.
The biggest ratio of waste is made of plastics, which are however 90 % recycled by ourselves or others companies.
