This company’s “Heidon” brand name derives from the nickname “Heidon” given to the company’s founder Masuhei Nomura at the time when he was working as an apprentice. Even though the brand sounds like it may be a German word, our company is “Made in Japan”.

The “Three-one Motor” agitators are so-called because they promise the “Three No.1’s” of “Maintaining Safety”, “Delivering Satisfaction”, and “Maintaining After-sales Care”.

This name was formed by combining the words “tribology” and “gear”. The name incorporates the feeling of wishing to create products through effectively using the complex study of friction and wear as a tool.

Corporate Philosophy

Delivering Satisfaction to Our Users

Among scientific instruments, which require multi-type small-lot production, agitating operation is essential for scientific testing. “Three-One Motor” agitators offer greater stability and ease of use, while also supporting agitation research.

“Tribogear” testing instruments support equipment design, new materials development, and tribography, the study of friction that is closely related to everyday life.

Concentrating on these fields of agitators and friction and wear testing instruments, the company has built up a deep and large amount of trust in its foundation of technically very advanced products over its 56-year existence.

In the future, we will continue to carry out product development using unique Heidon ideas.

This is the Heidon philosophy.
