Outline

Productivity is extremely low in the reinforcing steel processing industry, where manual processing is dominant. TACoil® was developed as Japan's first compact coil with the concept of eliminating waste from reinforcing steel processing, including materials, space, time and energy. TACoil® aids in solving issues in the industry, including low productivity and the labor shortage.

Evaluation

The efforts to reduce various waste in steel manufacturing, storage, transportation and processing are highly commendable. Reviewing the entire process from production of materials to processing, the company identified the issues at hand and then sought and executed optimal solutions, following the ideal series of processes in design. The bar steel drawn up like a bobbin is the sheer result of the attempt to offer a logical solution to the problem, but the strikingly aesthetic aspect also moved our heart.
