Pla-Mechanism

Pla-Mechanism

Kuroda Kagaku pursues the potential of plastics, building around the concept of “Pla-Mechanism,” and creating new value

“Pla-Mechanism” refers to the creation of new mechanisms, by combining worldwide needs with diverse “seeds,” focused around plastics. Kuroda Kagaku creates new value, leveraging the know-how, technology, and network that we have established over many years.

PLA-MECHANISM

Giving Shape to Pla-Mechanisms

Kuroda Kagaku creates new functions for various purposes, such as improving quality, reducing weight, and reducing costs, through four approaches: expansion, replacement, combination, and assembly

Expansion

We utilize and modify existing plastic components to achieve integration, weight reduction, and other improvements.

  • Shaft and gear functions integrated into a single component.Shaft and gear functions integrated into a single component.
  • Different connector functions integrated into a single component.Different connector functions integrated into a single component.
  • Chassis functions integrated into a single component.Chassis functions integrated into a single component.
Replacement

We replace metal and other materials with plastics.

  • Die-cast metal Plastic Die-cast metal Plastic
  • Sheet metal PlasticSheet metal Plastic
  • Glass PlasticGlass Plastic
Combination

We combine the characteristics of plastic and other materials.

  • Combined with metalCombined with metal
  • Combined with elastomerCombined with elastomer
Assembly

We assemble metal and electronic parts in plastic bodies.
