Metal moulding

Metal moulding

The moulds employed for resin watch parts, from gears and other precision parts to novel moulded external parts, are originally fabricated at Yamagata CASIO. Besides undergoing many automated manufacturing processes, they are hand-polished to give them a precision finish.

Metal moulding

Module manufacture

A single production line at Yamagata CASIO can handle assembly of as many as 13 types of movements, and the ability to perform speedy small-lot production of many products is among its strengths. Suitable for production of a diverse variety of watches, from watches with three hands to chronographs with multiple hands, the lines have the capacity to create an abundant lineup that enables customers to select a watch to suit their style.

Parts manufacture

Parts manufacture

Several microscopically sized rigid resin gears are installed in each movement. Minute teeth around the gears’ perimeters mesh with the teeth of other gears neither too gently nor too strongly to assure smooth movement. At Yamagata CASIO, these minute parts are made using machining technologies with 1/1000 mm precision to assure more accurate gear movement.
