We start new Lumbar Spine test method in order to specify the Force vs Angle by Torso Flexion test system with different shore A hardness Lumbar Spines special attachment jig, shown as picture.
We start manufacturing Rib with new dumping materials due to the original material are no longer available from McGill USA. The new material is identical material as McGill. The Rib calibration test results are very constant and reliable.
We changed our casting parts from sand casting to wax casting. The change reduced the number of bubble holes in the casting and strengthened parts.

ES-2 Neck and Buffer production molds are ready for trial production and calibration tests.
SID-II’s Neck calibration test, Head drop calibration test for normal production are available.
The new added 3D scanning and modeling system enables us to develop new and customized product in a shorter lead time. The picture below is a sample of 3D Skull model.
We established a second production plant to satisfy the increased demands from our customers world wide. Two large vinyl-urethan forming ovens and one medium forming oven were installed to the production line in February 2011. On top of that, we are planning to active two large ovens which are already in our stock in the future to correspond to the demands in the new markets.
The picture below is the two new large ovens and our chief engineer for mold production, Mr. Furugori.
