Strength of DaikyoNishikawa
Resin Blend Technology
Depending on the place and applications to be used, required performance and attribution for resin can vary greatly.
For example, the resin components used in the engine bay must have high functionality to withstand high temperature, vibration or the denaturalization by oil.
On the other hand, the exterior parts need to withstand not only intense temperatures and strong shock but also asked to maintain a long period of time a beautiful shape and color. For the interior parts, it is necessary to achieve both comfortable feel, luxury and safety.
DaikyoNishikawa has worked on developing wide range of products to meet the car manufacturers' request of right resin in the right place. "From upstream to downstream", DaikyoNishikawa carries out from research and development of blending resin material to manufacturing molded products with stringent quality verification in integrated process. Its craftsmanship backed by the accumulated data and know-how has been utilized to produce every resin products.
- Research from material preparation
- Technical accumulation from material blend to production
- Meet the diverse needs of customers
It is essential to reduce weight for the improvement of the automobile performance such as "run", "turn", "stop" as well as energy saving.
While the specific gravity of iron alloy is approximately 7, resin is about 1.2 to 1.5, which means it is feasible to make lighter made of resin product when compared with the counterpart of iron alloy in the same shape.
DaikyoNishikawa, to pursue the possibility of resin, has been promoting the development of strong, tough and light weight product. It achieved to reduce the thickness of the bumper up to 2 millimeters. To achieve the weight and improve fuel efficiency, as well as reduce the thickness of the bumper up to only 2mm without any sacrifice in rigidity and safety features. Another excellent example will be found in engine cover with the foam molding technology that reduce not only weight but also noise in the engine bay.
- Study of material properties
- Pursuit of lightness and strength
- Contribution to the ecology conscious light weight car
Replacing Metal with Plastic
Automobiles consist of variety of aggregates such as iron, aluminum, magnesium, glass, cloth, leather, rubber, and resins. Collision safety and comfortable ride implementation is often accompanied by weight gain that gives negative impact for dynamic performance and energy efficiency. In order to achieve weight reduction in grams consistent with maximum safety features, making use of resin's potential will be one of the most appropriate solutions.
History of DaikyoNishikawa is also the history of "replacing from metal to resin".
Parts in the engine bay as intake manifolds, oil strainers, engine covers are some examples that DaikyoNishikawa replaced steel with plastic first in the industry. Another achievement is car body shell like back doors, fenders, front hoods, which greatly contribute to weight loss of automobile. Today, resin is used even in structure part. DaikyoNishikawa has made engine shroud, believed for long it should be metal to support heavy radiator.
These cars, equipped with DaikyoNishikawa parts, are already on the street round about.
- Research and development challenging to common sense
- Replace from metal to resin
- Realize furthermore fuel-efficient car
Commitment to Finishing of Parts
Automotive interior parts that the driver and passengers touch, feel and see, must to have sophisticated finish with soft in feel and luxury, at the same time the ability to protect in case of emergency.
DaikyoNishikawa, sticking to the finishing of interior parts, has a variety of instrument panel (dashboard) manufacturing methods. It has wide variety of product line-up from urethane injection molded product that is used in luxury cars, good soft-feel painted tactile in injection molding product used in mid range cars, and standing colored molding product for entry model range cars. In addition, hydraulic transfer paint, film insert, hand-wound decorative parts will meet car manufacturers' diverse needs.
DaikyoNishikawa's comfortable and safe interior parts are produced with its elaborate persistence in finishing.
- Needs to satisfy both luxury and safety
- Latest molding, decorative technology
- Creating safe and comfortable car environment
