Takisawa Machine Tool prides itself on the use of cutting-edge technologies to supply quality products that meet a variety of manufacturing needs. Their product range includes CNC lathes and machining centres, as well as drill centres, traditional lathes, and other stand alone machines, such as FA cells and systems for automated lines.
To reduce development time and cost, Takisawa Machine Tool sought to reform its processes through the use of a mixed 2D/3D environment.

Takisawa selected CATIA V5 for 3D CAD in 2001 – by 2003 all new products were being designed using CATIA V5.
Using CATIA V5, Takisawa has improved interference checking, reducing time from prototype to production by as much as 50 percent.
