nanoSUS® Ultra-fine grain stainless steel
"Ultra-fine grained steel" is a material in which the metal grains have been reduced to about 1/7 to 1/10 of the conventional material grain size.
By reducing the grain size without changing the material composition, it is possible to improve the strength and processing stability of the material.
nanoSUS® is a registered trademark of our company, which is a stainless steel material with ultra-fine grains.
We are promoting the development of new fields by transforming stainless steel, which is widely used, into ultra-fine grained steel.
We are the only manufacturer of nanoSUS® wire.

Grain size less than 1.4µm
Applications of nanoSUS® technology
Characteristics of nanoSUS®
Grain size and strength can be controlled for each application
No change in material chemical compositions
Grain refinement using only special rolling process technology
- The tensile strength can be increased by up to 20% and the hardness by 10%.
- With increased strength, parts will become smaller, thinner, and lighter.
- With improved fatigue properties, parts will have a longer life.
Excellent processing stability
Grains become finer, burrs are suppressed during cutting,
surface roughness is reduced during bending, and processing accuracy is improved during micro-press stamping.
Improved edge accuracy
Reduction of surface roughness
Reduction of burr
Reduction of shear droop
nanoSUS® wire manufacturing process
The patented technology* and our unique processing method have made it possible to produce ultra-fine grained steel wire (wire rod), which was previously difficult.
We are the only company that can control the grain size of nanoSUS® wire from 9µm to 0.2µm.
We will propose the best material with the best balance of strength and ductility and the appropriate processing method according to the customer's product specifications and applications.
nanoSUS® is manufactured using the patent held by National Institute for Materials Science (JP-4714828-B2).
Expansion into overseas medical device fields
"Rosies Base Holdings" was established as a subsidiary in Boston, USA in 2020, and we have started full-scale entry into the medical device field in the US market.
In order to expand the potential of nanoSUS®, which we have been manufacturing and evaluating in-house, we have been conducting joint research with American universities. We will continue to expand our global activities in the bio-related and medical device industries by utilizing the characteristics of nanoSUS®.

Measurement of grain size
By observing the material grain structure using "EBSD", we can visualize and analyze various data such as the state of the base material and the processing-affected layer when it is processed.
