German plant engineering specialist Eisenmann is set to establish a new presence in Japan with the opening of a sales and service office in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture. This new opening underlines the company’s strategic goal of international growth and takes the total number of Eisenmann sites to twenty-six across fifteen countries.

The Yokohama office will reportedly focus on building and strengthening Eisenmann’s business relationships with Japanese vehicle manufacturers and automotive component suppliers. Japanese OEMs account for approximately 30% of the global market for vehicles under six metric tons and have manufacturing facilities in many countries worldwide. However, capital expenditure decisions are significantly influenced by their corporate headquarters in Japan.

As Jeffrey Bowers, General Manager of Eisenmann Japan, explains, “The new office in Yokohama puts us in close geographical proximity to our local customers and allows us to engage more effectively with them. Japanese auto companies traditionally prefer to cooperate with locally based suppliers, but also pay close attention to quality and cost-effectiveness. As a result, they are increasingly interested in innovative technologies from other countries.”

Eisenmann manufactures a range of sintering furnaces for Powder Metallurgy (PM) and Metal Injection Moulding applications. The company’s roller-type kilns offer high-temperature sintering in multiple zones with sintering temperatures of up to 1350°C, atmosphere separation and precise setting of the temperature profile allowing production of low-alloy and high-alloy PM steels.

Very low dew points are said to permit dependable sintering of alloying elements with a high oxygen affinity such as chromium, manganese or vanadium. An integrated rapid cooling module (gas quenching zone) permits sinter-hardening of new PM steels with tight dimensional tolerances and high material strength and hardness values.
