Original Tray

Iwaki rapidly manufactures original trays using integrated production

Iwaki uses vacuum forming to manufacture its own original trays. This method is often used in processing and forming plastic products such as egg cartons and convenience store box lunch plates. Vacuum formed products are fixtures of our everyday lives, and vacuum forming technology is essential to society. We have refined these technologies over five decades and established a solid position as a manufacturer specializing in industrial trays. We will continue to refine our technical capabilities, centering on our core vacuum forming technologies, and meet the expectations of our customers. By doing so, we will cultivate further potential for trays.

Turning customer wishes into reality quickly and inexpensively

Iwaki's manufacturing philosophy is one of turning our customers' wishes into reality. This focus has enabled us to do business with a tremendous number of customers. Every customer brings their own requests. Every time we receive an order, we manufacture trays with the conviction that we must always take on new technical challenges. Our original trays are used in a wide range of products, including optics, electronic components, precision devices, and vehicle components. Their main uses are packing, processing, storage, and transportation. We believe it is our mission to perform original tray planning, design, mold creation, and formation faster and at lower prices than our competitors. Our whole company will work harder than ever to turn customer wishes into reality. Our customers' needs change as society changes. However, no matter how much the world may change, we will maintain the customer-centric perspective that has been part of our company since it was first founded, and continue to meet the needs of our customers. We are confident that this approach will create the foundation for the next fifty years of Iwaki's history.
