The Future of Nanbu Tekki imagined by Tayama Tetsubin Kobo
Mr. Tayama used to be more passionate in searching out what he wants to create. But his view has slowly evolved since he started working with his son Takahiro.
Takahiro has a modern vision with the potential to diversify the business.
Mr. Tayama now wishes to flexibly combine this modern sense with his traditional knowledge. Moreover, he recently has committed to making a more local contribution by holding Nanbu Tekki Experience classes and supporting the development of successors.
Through this, Mr. Tayama has the hope that he can help widen the culture of Nanbu Tekki again. For the sake of the art of Nanbu Tekki, Mr. Tayama will devote even more effort with his son Takahiro in the future. The diligent days of Mr. Tayama will continue with a renewed conviction.
Mr. Tayama uses his favourite Emax EVOlution regularly.
For various operations like drawing patterns, de-burring, and grinding, Mr. Tayama uses two Emax EVOlutions. Since our establishment in 1930, the know-how we have gained through the development of dental air turbines and micro motors has been utilized in the craft object, jewel, and mold making industries for highly precise grinding and polishing machines which require accurate and careful work results. Our high-efficient micro grinder is suitable for multiple applications and is especially highly regarded. Details of the Emax EVOlution can be found below.
