New Product Development

Our efforts in the research and development
of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRTP)

Development of one-minute molding technology for large complex shaped products

CAE molding analysis contributes to improving yields by predicting cracks, wrinkles and blank shapes.

Front floor molded product

Hood inner molded product

Development of deep drawing and process reduction molding technology with temperature control mold

Deeper and more complex shapes can be molded by using temperature-controlled molds.
