MARUNAKA Tekkosho Inc. has been involved in design and construction of special woodworking machines since its founding 1933.
Since the early seventies super surfacers (US Pat.3,727,654) are one of MARUNAKA's priorities. Several thousand super surfacers have been exported worldwide. More than 600 units were installed in Europe.
Further development led 1974 to US Pat. 3,783,917 for a lengthwise slicer for slicing veneers.
With the EU-Pat.0445344, the pioneer MARUNAKA 1990 also received the patent for the special lengthwise slicer for slicing lamellae (slats).
From Japan, MARUNAKA's unique lengthwise slicing technology stated the worldwide distribution. Lately the special slicers are also used for the processing of plastics.
Our creed is CRAFTNICS - the crystallization of Craftsmanship and Mechatronics - that realizes high value added machines with the combination of HIGH-TEC & traditional Japanese craftsman's work.
