What is cast metal?

Cast metal is metal that has been liquefied, poured into a mold and shaped.
As far back as 4,000 BC, the Mesopotamians were manufacturing bronze weapons and ornaments.
Metal casting technology is said to have been introduced to Japan from China via the Korean Peninsula around 300 BC. It became widespread between 100 BC and AD 100, as discoveries such as bronze spears and vessels attest.
The technology continued to develop until it was being used for everything from giant structures, such as the Great Buddha in Nara, to small items, such as coins.

Metal casting technology continues to see dramatic progress even today and is an indispensable part of commercial products, such as automobile parts, cast-iron pipes, industrial machinery, housing materials, monuments and much more.
Metal casting involves melting down a material and reshaping it to give it a new use; thus, casting has been called a recycling industry, and it has great promise for even further utilization in this area.

The Casting Process

Although there is ever-constant change in the materials, equipment and technology used for cast metal, the fundamental techniques involved are the same as those used for millennia.
Ancient technologists created extremely high-quality products, despite their lack of the wide range of technological and material resources now available.

Our Products

Mohka Cast Metal

Cast metal is, by nature, characterized by a freedom of design, superior workability and stable prices.
At Mohka Manufacturing we take full advantage of these features to produce cast metal that is stronger, thinner, lighter and finer. Our present major products are brake calipers, which are important safety parts for automobiles. Based on our constant technical improvement, we applied our innovative ideas to all processes of casting and finally developed a system that allows no more than one defect per one million products.
With this firmly established framework that guarantees quick supply of high-quality and inexpensive products, we are taking on challenging tasks and aiming to measure up to global standards.

Technological Capacity

In 2004, we introduced a "Pouring and Solidification Simulation System" which enables us to use computers to simulate the casting process from the pouring of molten metal to its solidification. This high-precision analysis technology coupled with various in-house innovations has enabled us to dramatically reduce the time required for problem solving.
