The products that Shiga Yamashita makes are mainly used to perform finishing processes on aluminum-cast of automobile parts.
As the main components of automotive engines have complex structures including the passages of coolant, oil, etc. running inside them, they are manufactured by an intricate casting process, which involves pouring molten metal into a sand mold and hardening it.
Once the casting is done, the sand mold is broken and taken out (Mold-breaking), after which the residual sand inside the casting is discharged (Sand removal), and the sprues (metal passages), burrs, and other unwanted parts are also removed (Cutting and deburring). After hole drilling and other required finishing processes are performed, the casting is cleaned (Washing and air blowing), quenched, and assembled together for mounting onto the automobile.
The products manufactured by Shiga Yamashita are involved in crucial work processes that are essential for making automobiles.
