Dainichi Kinzoku Co., Ltd.'s combination of old world craftsmanship and new world technology has resulted in the development of the industry's most rigid and powerful lathes. Featuring high-torque motors and one-piece frames, as well as expanded work areas and large spindle bores, Dainichi lathes are designed to turn larger parts than any other machines in their class.

Dainichi Kinzoku Co., Ltd., since being founded by Shozo Koyama as the Koyama Store in 1931, has grown to become one of the leading manufacturers of lathes - small-, medium- and super large-sized. With the developments of our universal machine tool and DL-6 lathe in 1937 and 1952 respectively, we were among the first to introduce the basis for modern day lathes. Since then, we have invested in a number of R&D and manufacturing facilities, and continue to set the precedent for tomorrow's lathes.
