What is tech-studios?

MATSUI promotes "Achieve 'factor 4' in molding factories by 2020" so we offer products propose solutions to help customers reach this goal.

We have focused on [ Resource Reduction ], [ Increasing Output ] and [ Enhancing Value ], as methods for reaching 4-times current resource productivity. By raising output while reducing the consumption of raw materials, water and energy, factor 4 is truly achievable.

These are the basic tenets of MATSUI's plan.

As a first step towards this goal, we’ve opened the factor 4 tech-studios. As a first step towards this goal, we’ve opened the factor 4 tech-studios offers a next generation interactive experience that will provide be full of discoveries and surprises.

NOTE: There may be times when the studios are temporarily closed,
             so please contact us in advance.


In studio1, we have prepared a series of problem solving tips. For example, you can see a smart factory production management system on display. This system collects real time factory data and can use this data to better manage plant systems. Energy consumption, resource use and even time are optimized automatically. Demonstrations of this system and other products are provided on a regular basis.

The focus of studio2 is "Improving Surface Quality & Value". Exhibited are methods of Heat & Cool Molding. Heat & Cool Molding produces numerous benefits and processing improvements over conventional injection molding. Since Heat & Cool Molding can be accomplished a few different ways, comparisons between methods are shown. For example, pressurized hot water vs. steam heating of the mold is compared. A demonstration mold is run using steam-Heat & Cool and hot water-Heat & Cool Molding. By molding the same part on the same machine using each method, a clear understanding of benefits and limitations can be seen. Another method on display for higher temperature applications is oil Heat & Cool Molding. Studio2 also exposes hidden losses caused by poor water quality. The buildup of scale and other deposits inside cooling pipes reduces heat transfer and efficiency. A solution to this phenomenon is the hybrid chiller and dry cooler called the 'ecobrid'.

studio3examines ways to "Higher Dimensional Precision" and for “Cancelling Problems From Resin Gassing”. To attain these goals, exhibits showing MuCell ® Molding, and Dry-Ice Blast Mold Cleaning are displayed and demonstrated. Also, shown is the pressurized hot water type Heat & Cool Molding with a sample of Conformal Cooling Mold (3D water tube mold with 3D printer) in the back room.
