■Core Competence

Scrap metal generated in the production of steel plates for automobiles by pressing machines are used as casting materials. However, recently scrap material is being mixed with various kinds of metal chips including those coated with zinc. To produce high-quality casting materials, it is necessary to solve the problems of the diversified metal chips adversely affecting product quality, and zinc-coated metal waste causing inefficient melting and damage to the melting unit. At TOYOKIN, we examine scrap metal with X-ray and emission spectrometry techniques to thoroughly sort and store the metals according to their materials. In addition, we have developed a vacuum dezincification technology to remove zinc coating from scrap surfaces. We are the only company in Japan to have an industrially-operated facility employing this technology to provide casting materials that meet the needs of our customers.
