In 1946, Isamu Amada (the founder) established Amada Seisakusho, which was initially engaged in the business of sheet metal machines and cutting products.
In 1955, it developed and manufactured a bandsaw disk called Contour, and it started selling in 1956.
In 1965, it bought out the Torc-Pac brand in the United States and the Promecam brand in France, and sold it under the name of Amada.
As a result, “Amada” entered a period of rapid development and became a world-class brand in the sheet metal business.
The company enjoys a high reputation in developed countries such as Japan, the United States and Europe.
Its production of sheet metal processing machinery has many varieties (up to nearly a thousand varieties) with excellent performance and advanced technology, making it the world’s first sheet metal processing machinery industry.
The 21st-century intelligent automatic sheet metal processing center developed and manufactured by the company in the 1990s set a precedent for the intelligent processing of the world sheet metal industry and won the highest award for technological invention in Japan.
The main products are: CNC punching machines, bending brakes, shearing machine, laser cutting machines and other sheet metal processing machinery, as well as corresponding dies, spare parts, and cutting products.
