St. Paul, MN (February 17, 2021) —With more than 85 years of experience and know-how, Matsuura maintains a manufacturing craftsmanship unparalleled in the industry.

Matsuura continues to invest in an exceptionally skilled workforce, offering traditional craftsmanship combined with state-of-the-art engineering principles and total commitment to excellence in product design, innovation, and manufacturing.

According to Matsuura Machinery President, Katsu Matsuura, in order to maintain the longevity of Matsuura machine tools, the company’s basic build procedure has not changed.

Matsuura procures first-class components and then carefully assembles each machine with the greatest attention to detail. In an age of computer numerical controls and automated processes, hand scraping mated surfaces seems antiquated. With the extra time and effort required, many builders have abandoned the process. Few OEMs still stand by its value, maintaining that the craftsmanship required —and the benefits it provides—cannot be reproduced mechanically.

Traditional hand-scraping is a meticulously manual technique by extremely skilled and experienced craftsman. This process creates textured divots along finishing slide guide mating components which allows mating surfaces to smoothly glide against each other.

Matsuura Masters of Hand Scraping impart their wisdom and techniques on young generations, passing on Matsuura’s commitment to producing a harmoniously balanced machine which will provide the best return on your investment.
