ABI’s Cells-Alive Technology (CAS)
When water starts to freeze, water molecules clump together and form a large ice crystal. The complex energy created by CAS Function Generator of ABI makes the water clusters to vibrate, with which it prevents water molecules to gather together and keep them under super-cooling condition to attain small ice crystal formation.

Small ice crystals cannot rupture cell membranes and for this reason, original freshness is restored after thawing.

New Clutch Discs with Durability and Anti-friction Characteristics for Automatic Transmission Vehicles
A clutch disc used in the transmission system (automatic transmission) of automatic (AT) vehicles has an iron ring structure provided with a friction material attached to its surface. In the past, asbestos, which causes serious health problems, was used as a friction material. Dynax Corporation took up the challenge of producing “asbestos-free” materials.
In 1983, they succeeded in developing Japan’s first paper friction material through a process of combining natural and synthetic fibers, blended with a friction adjustment agent, which was impregnated with phenol resin for hardening. This development not only solved an environmental issue but also produced a product that far surpasses conventional materials in terms of various specifications such as durability, thus significantly contributing to the “advancement” of AT vehicles.

Omotenashi - Japanese Hospitality

Omotenashi – The Heart of Japanese Hospitality
By Muneyuki Joraku

I think it’s about creating a non-dominant relationship between a person who’s offering the service and a person who is receiving it. It could be the CEO of a big company, a famous star or an ordinary housewife, but there’s only one simple relationship between host and guest. An example of the best Omotenashi is when the host anticipates the needs of the guest in advance and offers a pleasant service that guests don’t expect. They should not wait for instructions from their guests, as guests who make their requests directly are considered unsophisticated in Japan.
