The awarding ceremony of the 2015’s best technology award of Kyoto’s SME was held at “Kyoto business exchange fair 2015” on Wednesday, February 18th and our company was rewarded.
The name of rewarded technology and product was the railway vehicle seat made by aluminum die casting. The main structural materials of the railway vehicle seat, especially the materials for movable seat that enables the backrest to move back and forth in the direction of travel, require strengths and durability. For the introduction of aluminum die casting, we designed and developed highly strengthened and none damaged materials and we realized reducing the weight of railway vehicle and the cost down by reducing processing hour significantly.
Aluminum die casting has high material precision which doesn’t require after process or minor adjustment like sheet metal of steel sheet and weld. It reduced the man hour by one fourth and realized cost reduction.
