Kawasaki Glass’ Gravestone KAGLA’

Kawasaki Glass' Gravestone KAGLA'

KAGLA (registered trademark number 5823014), uses glass material unlike gravestones that use mainly stone, achieving embossing of colors and patterns that have not been easily expressed with just stone. It uses durable cast glass (patent number 6864878) that can handle Japan’s climate. With exposure tests carried out in Hokkaido and Okinawa, it has excellent results and reliability when it comes to durability (As of 2023, it has not cracked once due to heat exposure). They are the first to manufacture gravestones that use Japanese-made cast glass.

“MT Cassette” Cassette Mold System

"MT Cassette" Cassette Mold System

Cassette mold system for plastic injection molding. Unlike the conventional built-in type molds, this product divided the mold into the “mold base” and “mold cores”, to be able to form many types of moldings by simply exchanging mold cores. Compared to conventional molds, it is “low cost”, “space saving”, and has a “short delivery time”. Furthermore, it can reduce warehousing costs and the use of steel materials, which will contribute to reducing the impact on the environment.

Flat Pin Gate Bush for Injection Mold

Flat Pin Gate Bush for Injection Mold

A pin gate bush incorporated in an injection mold is located at the edge of a resin passage. With its taper pin-shape, it cuts off automatically when being molded. The problem for customers is that it causes whisker-like leftovers on products from the gate. This company has developed an original-shaped pin gate bush as their first own product; they adopted a flat-shaped edge instead of traditional perfectly circular-shape, so that resin can be solidified quicker and gate leftovers are consistently smaller.
