■Core Competence

The pipe-threading machines have been Asada’s core products since its establishment. The feature of the pipe-threading machine is to thread pipes without water leakage. Our Beaver series, which was first developed in Japan in 1953, has held the world’s top market share. The related portable band saw is also the first such product developed in Japan, and we are currently attracting interest from a foreign company for joint development of the product.
Asada Corporation has applied the “anti-water leak” technology to the “anti-gas leak” technology, and has accumulated “know-how” on refrigerant shifting and filling technologies. Our first Freon recovery machines have held the top market share in commercial refrigerant equipment since it was first developed in Japan in 1995. We have a wide variety of Freon recovery machines using different technologies including ultra high pressure, low pressure, and high speed. Furthermore, a recovery machine for SF6 gas (with a high global warming potential) has also been developed and distributed. Currently, we are developing new products, followed by the adaptation of the NEDO research and development project and the regional consortium project by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
