Nose Kozai’s Product Development Capability

04Nose Kozai’s Product Development Capability.

Inspired by a simple suggestion by a staff member, the Nose Product Development project was born. From a piece of raw stainless steel, we cut and create “Wish Pieces,” which embodies various human emotions.

Quality Inspection Business

05Quality Inspection Business

Today’s industrial customers require advanced levels of quality assurance and control. Many industries, including the aerospace industry, demand rigorous quality inspection and parts tracing. We can accommodate a high level of quality control by employing a fleet of inspection machines, including a 3-D measurement system, non-destructive inspection apparatus, and PMI inspection, to name a few. Our PMI system is compact and transportable. We can provide a PMI inspection any time anywhere, and we will issue a detailed quality inspection report to aid your complete quality control process.
