EBA offers automation solutions to a wide range of industries, including machine tools, semiconductors, automotive and renewable energy.
Established in 1953, EBA Kogyo serves the machine tool industry with its high-performing factory automation solutions, which include pallet stockers, tool stockers and tilt loading stations. With over 50 years of experience developing and manufacturing custom pallet and tool stock systems for leading companies around the world, today the Japanese enterprise is harnessing the power of AI and IoT to support its clients in building smart factories, while diversifying the industries that it serves.
"In response to global market changes and customer needs, we have developed and improved our pallet system series by saving energy, space, and resources, improving durability and maintainability, handling 50-ton heavy workpieces, reducing installation time, and making the system compatible with robots," reveals company president Ken Nakamura.
Cultivated over 70 years, EBA's expansive manufacturing capabilities include mechanical and electrical design, welding and casting material, machining and surface treatment, assembly, commissioning, and inspection capabilities, as well as its capacities for welding large objects weighing more than 10 tons and high-precision machining capabilities of less than 10 microns. Utilizing this manufacturing expertise, EBA has taken on the challenge of extending its operation to clients in emerging industries such as robotics and electric vehicles (EVs).
"In Vietnam, we are working on renewable energy generators from wind turbines. We are also working on bonding machines for semiconductors," says Mr. Nakamura.
"The fusion of robotics and machine tools is very important, and that is the another challenge that we are working on right now. Currently, there is a major transition in the automotive industry from internal combustion engines to EVs. We can be of help to the automotive makers as they shift their activities. We will be able to help them to increase their automation ratio."
