TOTEM’S STRENGTH AS A CABLE MANUFACTURER

Total System mainly manufactures cable harnesses, which are cables with connectors attached to the end thereof. TOTEM’s cable harnesses are mainly used for industrial electronic apparatus such as semiconductor manufacturing devices and medical electronic instruments. Most of the harnesses are custom-ordered to be suitable for each device to which the harnesses are applied, unlike those mass-produced cable harnesses. Therefore, the primary thing our customers want from us is the quality of the products. It is our technologies, facilities and system that enable us to realize products of such high standard. As the advanced information society develops, the world of state-of-the-art electronics will further expand. In order to adapt to such future, Total System will pursue uncompromising quality from the viewpoint of processing and manufacturing of cable harnesses.

Quality Assurance System

Deep Commitment to Producing Quality Products Shared by Each Staff Member

Electricity for electronic devices is similar to blood for human, and cables and harnesses through which electricity is circulated may be likened to vessels in the human body. As can be imagined from the important, very basic role that blood and vessels play in the body, the quality of cables and harnesses directly affects the performance of the electronic devices. As such, TOTEM places the highest priority on the quality of our products, and has thus made a written quality policy as a way to show our promise to further maintain the quality.

Qualification System

作業員認定制度
Never Allow Degradation in Quality through Continuous Efforts

TOTEM is proud of our highly accurate processing skills, and that is the reason why we never get satisfied with them. TOTEM has thus established a unique qualification system aiming at maintenance and improvement in the skills of the processing staff. The qualification exam includes skill test and paper test, in which candidates are thoroughly checked whether they have accurate processing skills and knowledge that meet the standard, i.e. whether they can make satisfactory products. What is more, the qualification is not permanent and need to be renewed every year, thus maintaining their processing skills. In the background of maintaining the TOTEM products’ quality that exceeds the standard underlies such persistent and restless efforts

Hybrid Production System

PROCEED SERVICE PROCEED SERVICE

Line-Production System Where Our Integrated Production Know-How is Applied

Traditionally, TOTEM adopted Cell Production System where one operator took care of the whole production process. It was because we considered that engineers’ knowledge and skills would be effectively improved through integrated production and also that the quality of our products would be improved even more through a sense of responsibility generated in the engineers. However, in consideration of the fact that the company now has enough engineers with excellent skills and a strong sense of responsibility, TOTEM has changed the system to Line Production System. With the speed of line production, we have realized mass production and quick delivery even for custom-ordered cables that require advanced skills. By adopting a hybrid production system where quality and speed, which tend to be traded off, are combined together, TOTEM can respond flexibly to various needs of our customers.

Reliable Quality Guaranteed by Collaboration between Men and Machines

In order to meet the increasing demand, TOTEM has been making a generous investment on facilities and introducing leading-edge processing machines. In fact, what have been useful in the operation thereof are the skills and knowledge of our engineers they had obtained through manual processing. They are the very key to assessing the whole process with a bird’s-eye view and knowing when to use the machines. Through collaboration between men and machines, where manual and machine processing are flexibly selected in consideration of operational efficiency, TOTEM is vigorously polishing its renowned quality even more, including the speed of production.

Looks Ordinary?
But Excellent Pieces We Are So Proud Of

TOTEM’s cable processing includes attachment of various connectors to a wide range of cables from ordinary cables we have in stock to special cables provided from customers. All the process is completed within our factory, which enables us to promptly prepare cables customized just for you. What is more, as mentioned above, most of our products are used in state-of-the-art industrial electronic equipment such as semiconductor manufacturing devices and medical electronic instruments. That is the very evidence that our products meet the strictest standard where even a slight fluctuation in quality is not allowed. Our cable harnesses might seem ordinary ones at first sight, but we guarantee with much confidence that they are definitely excellent pieces.

ABOUT TOTAL SYSTEM CO., LTD.

SUCCEEDING THE DNA OF A KING OF INVENTION
BORN IN THE TOHOKU REGION

Once, there was an engineer in Oshu City, Iwate Prefecture in the Tohoku region, who invented numerous unique devices such as a vegetable vending machine, a germanium hot bath and an electric putting green, and thus called “The King of Invention from Tohoku”. His name was Masao Ono, the founder of our company. Ono’s engineering team was free-minded and full of innovative ideas, and also blessed with reliable technologies that enabled those ideas to be realized. The team gained high reputation not only on their inventions but also on their skills for manufacturing other electronic devices, which gradually formed the basis of our company. Total System’s main business has now become the processing of cables and harnesses, and thankfully, our technologies and product quality have continued to be highly trusted by our customers. The driving force behind our business is the very DNA succeeded from Tohoku’s King of Invention to each employee of Total System.
