Corporate Profile

We, Nichidai Filter Corporation, have over 40 years experience of sintering stainless steel material, mainly stainless steel cloth and mesh. We have been a pioneer as well as an expert in the field of sintering (diffusion bonding) stainless steel material. In 1974, we offered to the market our first standard wire mesh product, "Absolta" developed by our own technology and effort.

In 1980, we started to tie up with Tokyo University Institute of Space and Astronautical science, reformed later to JAXA, to develop some parts of Japan rockets. Since then, we have been producing the essential parts of Japan rockets.

In 2004, our organization has been reformed from Filter Division of Nichidai Corporation to Nichidai Filter Corporation.

In 2007, Thai Sintered Mesh Co., Ltd was established in Thailand to produce more sintered wire mesh panels, especially to meet the demand of the world crude oil field and started its production in 2008. At this point, we were probably No.1 supplier in the world.

As an expert and the pioneer of sintered wire mesh, we definitely believe that our mission is to continue to provide with porous metal products of various stainless steel material to meet needs and requirements of our customers far into the future. In case you need any porous metal of stainless steel, your contacts, inquiries, etc. to us are always welcome.
