We put technique and heart into the making of each one.
Actually, I’d been wondering if I could try something fun, even though we were mainly working on built-to-order manufacturing of exterior parts for cars. We’re good at manufacturing things when the specifications have already been determined. But it was a whole new world for us to create something from scratch. Through this opportunity, we were excited to produce this item based on our own concept.
Choosing from among many ideas, we decided to develop the 3D Orizuru-shaped item, one of Hiroshima’s symbols. Thick shapes, with concavo-convex surfaces and sharp edges, are generally considered difficult to manufacture. But we made a prototype with a 3D printer and then a metal mold, and Furuta Resin Industry also continued the coating process by trial and error to solve problems one by one.
As Hiroshima-based manufacturers, we put our techniques and pride into each item to produce these resin orizuru charms for accessories and other small items. We’d like people around the world to wear our orizuru charms.
By making a purchase, all profits will be donated to an organization developing and distributing a vaccine against covid-19.
