TACMINA has a rich history of innovation. In 1965, we launched the first electrically-powered metering pump made in Japan. Thereafter, we developed many breakthrough innovations including the world's first metering pump with automatic correction of discharge volume and what is known today as "Smoothflow" technology - a unique design that produces a highly accurate flow. Since our inception, we have earned more than one hundred domestic and international design patents and numerous awards. We continue to receive high praise from industry peers including eight of the highly-regarded Good Design Awards.
Our advanced Development center drives TACMINA's product development. We utilize many advanced analysis tools including some that are developed exclusively by our team of engineers. These tools help us to push the envelope of fluid dynamics and develop new products to support the ever-changing needs of our customers. For example, our state-of-art fluid testing laboratory enables us to run customer's product under various real-world scenarios and provide accurate engineering and chemistry data to the customer.
At TACMINA, we partner with our customers to solve their fluid delivery problems and deliver field-proven solutions.
Every application is unique. We use our extensive experience to meet your performance and functionality requirements. Each product recommendation is based on a holistic view of your application including the basics such as pressure, volume, fluid substance, and viscosity but we also go beyond the standard requirements to learn more about your overall application such as the installation environment and control methods. Our goal is to provide the ideal and complete solution every time.
One of TACMINA's strengths is our fluid delivery system solutions. We work with you to provide a total system solution by integrating all of the peripherals required to achieve your fluid delivery and process control solution including tanks, agitators, measurement instruments, control systems and of course, our world-class pump products. With decades of system engineering experience, we deliver the perfect solution at a great price.
We achieved ISO-9002 certification in 1996 and ISO-9001 certification in 1999. Our internal quality policy ensures the delivery of premium quality products and covers the process from product planning and design to manufacturing and inspection and all the way through product shipment. In addition, we have adopted a "quality control circle" and VAVE (value analysis, value engineering) methodology to drive product and process continuous improvement. Environmentally-friendly
manufacturing is a strong part of our corporate culture thus we are ISO-14001 certified.
Our products are assembled and tested in modern production cells. A product leader is assigned to each cell and is personally responsible for the performance inspection and finished product. We also encourage customers with critical applications visit our factory and see their product run on our custom-developed, precision inspection machine to personally witness and confirm the operation of their order before delivery.
Our factory maintenance service is available world-wide through our extensive network in Japan. At the factory, we disassemble, clean and perform complete maintenance on your pump, then we reassemble and test the unit to OEM standards using the same test equipment and performance parameters used at the time of the original shipment. Our mission is to return the product to you renewed, refreshed and ready for action with the peace of mind of a factory-maintained product at a fraction of the cost.
