Okazaki is our manufacturer for heater cables. They have experience in producing MI cable since 1954 and have been fine-tuning and perfecting the production process ever since. Okazaki works closely with its suppliers to guarantee the best quality of the heating cables.
The head office of Okazaki is located in the city of Kobe in Japan but production takes place in one of the six different Okazaki factories. The factories are located in Akashi, Kobe-Iwaoka, Kobe-Nishi, Fukuoka and Kyusyu Japan and each of them has a different specialization such as heater cable or the automotive industry.
Okazaki can produce M.I. cable with a diameter as small as 0.08 mm up to any size required.
Kamet, our customers and Okazaki are constantly working together to improve the quality of the cable. At the moment, most of the wires for inside the cables are purchased from Isabellenhütte (in Germany) and the majority of the tubes come from Europe.
This way, Okazaki can provide high quality cable for a competitive price.
Okazaki is ISO 9001 and 14001 certified amongst many other certificates.
