The company was founded in 1919 in Nagoya by Sadakichi Yamazaki as a small company making pots and pans. During the 1920s it progressed through mat-making machinery to woodworking machinery to metalworking machine tools, especially lathes. The company was part of Japan's industrial buildup before and during World War II, then, like the rest of Japanese industry, was humbled by the war's outcome. During the 1950s and 1960s, under the founder's sons, Yamazaki revived, and during the 1960s it established itself as an exporter to the American market.
Precitech designs and manufactures ultra precision machining solutions for diamond turning, milling, and grinding which
are used to produce optical lenses, mold inserts, mirrors, and precision mechanical components. Our machines produce rotationally symmetric, asymmetric, freeform, and sculpted geometries with form tolerances in the sub-micron range and nanometer surface finishes.
Moore Nanotechnology Systems, LLC was established in October 1997 as a stand alone subsidiary of the Moore Tool Company. Our initial vision remains in the continual development of state-of-the-art ultra-precision manufacturing systems and processes for the production of advanced optics — primarily for the consumer electronics, defense, aerospace, lighting, medical, and automotive sectors.
Mitutoyo was established on October 22, 1934. It was founded by Yehan Numata (Numata Ehan) with one product, the micrometer. Mitutoyo's philosophy at that time was to make high-quality micrometers, but also to produce them in quantities that made them affordable and available to all of manufacturing.
The Company was founded by Sir David McMurtry and John Deer in 1973. McMurtry had needed to measure fuel pipes on a prototype jet engine: at the time, coordinate-measuring machine sensors featured rigid styli, which required manual positioning on the surface and which yielded poor repeatability when measuring delicate components. To meet this need, McMurtry invented a touch-trigger probe device, which he then patented.
ESDI is a world-class developer of metrology instrumentation and software – serving companies of all sizes, major research laboratories, and universities worldwide. ESDI offers state-of-the-art metrology products that are both affordable and unprecedented in performance.
ISCAR is a producer of unique and innovative cutting tools for metalworking, including turning, grooving, milling, hole making, boring and threading tools. The company was founded in 1952 by Stef Wertheimer in an old shack that he rented,. After several years of steady expansion, the company headquarters moved to its current site in the Tefen Industrial Zone, situated in Israel's Western Galilee.
ISCAR has expanded from a single marketing and manufacturing facility in Israel to a multinational company with representation in over 50 countries.
