Outline

Automobile components use various rubber products such as suspensions, vibration-controlling materials around the engine, waterproof and dust-proof boots and sealing materials. A rubber injection molding machine is an essential production device for the automobile industry. As automobiles have developed, Japanese rubber injection molding machines have also developed. The STI-VR Series is the world’s best rubber injection molding machine, an accomplishment of which Sanyu is proud. It has achieved number one status globally in all specifications among competing products. VR-Z is an even more developed version of the VR series. The concept of the STI-VR-Z is to evolve from the "Made in Japan" that competes on technology to a "Made in Japan" that has a higher cultural level and has people at its core.

Evaluation

The round control panel, which appears to envelop the operator, naturally invites people to the center, and the right and left control panels are laid out so that they are easy for the operator to reach. It is a masterpiece that takes the relationship between people and machines to the next dimension. The color scheme also smashes conventional concepts about machine tools. We applaud the designers' boldness in selecting a light pink color for the interior of the factory, which is reminiscent of cherry blossoms in full bloom. Based on the high level of completeness that this design displays, the entire Screening Committee recommended it for the Good Design Award of Small and Medium Enterprises.
