■■■ Origin of Company Logo and Name ■■■


Shapes of general screw patterns are shown as a ’hexagon’, '+' and '-'. Their heads are tend to cause metal fatigue by using a driver (a wrench). In order to prevent the phenomenon, the founder, Tetsuo Takano, invented ’Torx-Screw that showed a longer life in torque tests compared with those commonly in use at that time.

Screws are not produced directly in our factory now.  However, Torx-Screw is widely used for computers of American large manufacturer.
