Making Furniture by Anchor Technology

The factory where “taonta” furniture is made is an old ironworks factory originally established in Tomonoura, Fukuyama-shi, Hiroshima prefecture in 1951 as a blacksmith shop that made fishing-related gear.
While our history originated as a blacksmith shop, we have made and delivered parts vital to industry for use in suspension bridges, cranes, amusement parks, elevators and general buildings as well as furniture combining technical skills and technology including manual welding, robot welding, coating and 3DCAD, with precision cutting using 30 machine tools.

In 2016, we took over the facilities and technology from an anchor manufacturer that was forced to close its business due to the aging of its employees in spite of its high-level free forging skills (heating and shaping metals) and we began manufacturing anchors using the same technology as one hundred years ago.

Currently, by combining free forging skills using the knowledge of anchor-making and precision processing technology using the latest numerical control machine tools and robots, we can create unique designs that stand out from the crowd.

We look forward to your interest in our future activities.

錨の技術で家具を作る

taonta(タオンタ)の家具が生まれる工場は広島県福山市鞆の浦で1951年に漁具などを作る鍛冶屋として創業した鉄工所です。

鍛冶屋をルーツとしながら、30台の工作機械での精密切削加工を軸に、手動溶接、ロボット溶接、塗装、3DCADなどの技術を組み合わせ、吊橋やクレーン、遊園地、エレベーター、一般建築物などに使用される重要部品や家具を作り続けて来ました。

2016年、高い自由鍛造(金属を焼いてたたく)技術を持ちながらも高齢化のため廃業を決めた、錨(いかり)製造業者から設備と技術を引き継ぎ、100年前と変わらない技術を用いて錨の製造を開始しました。

現在、錨を作る自由鍛造技術と、最新の数値制御工作機械やロボットを用いた精密加工技術を融合することで、他にはないデザインを具現化することが可能です。

これからの私たちの活動にご注目ください。
