What is Possible?

Nakanishi Vision engineers push the limits of what is possible. Through innovative technology, materials, processes and a heritage of precision craftsmanship, art is elevated to functional design.

Purpose Engineered

Working closely with the design team, products are engineered with purpose and manufacturability in mind.  Knowing the limits of what is achievable with current technology combined with innovative thinking make market forward concepts a reality.

Engineering Tasks

We work together on detailed tasks to realize the customer’s design and concept.
Design concept review
Reviewing shape, construction, function, material, and manufacturability with the client is essential before we move forward with the technical drawing.
After the technical drawing is approved, we create a handmade prototype sample and receive feedback from the client.
Production arrangements
Once the design is locked, the final approval of the technical drawing is done, and we move on to tooling arrangements, creating a tooling sample, color sample, sales sample, and so on, before starting mass production. 


  • Half the weight of nickel or silver
  • Nickel-free and naturally corrosion free
  • Higher manufacturability for complex shapes and an enhanced design
  • Rim-wire bending and punch-out
