Built-to-order - Creation of optimum products

“A hundred different vessels will have a hundred different propellers.”

“A hundred different vessels will have a hundred different propellers.”

There are various types of vessels—tankers, container carriers, passenger vessels, fishing vessels, and pleasure boats—all of which require a specific type of propeller. The required type of propeller also differs according to the engine and navigation route.

Nakashima Propeller considers these factors in a comprehensive manner, determines the optimum combination, and manufactures the product based on the concept of high-quality built-to-order production.

Propellers used underwater in harsh conditions need to be highly reliable. Fixed pitch propellers, including those with a diameter of 9 to 10 meters for large-size vessels, require an integral structure that can only be achieved through advanced design and production technologies.

Nakashima’s Design Department develops high-performance and optimally shaped propellers by utilizing technologies accumulated over many years and performing fluid-structure analysis.

In the production process, machine processing using special equipment is combined with the sensitivities and skills of our experienced craftsmen in order to precisely reproduce design data and produce high-quality propellers.

Nakashima Propeller has established its unique built-to-order production process by applying all of these technologies in an optimal fashion while accumulating data in order to achieve even more advanced manufacturing.
