Full-scale development with a view to energy reduction

The Act on the Rational Use of Energy, the so-called Energy Saving Act, was enacted in 1979. In this year and six years before, in 1973 and 1979, there was an oil shock. In 1973 and 1979 the world economy was in turmoil as oil producing countries in the Middle East cut back on oil production and raised the price of oil. This prompted Japan to promote the efficient use of energy. And in 2005 and 2008, the law was revised for the fourth and fifth time. The former required the integrated management of heat and electricity, while the latter extended the scope of the law not only to associations but also to the public. In this context, there was an increasing demand for energy saving in industrial equipment.
In particular, mills are indispensable for the products that support our daily lives by grinding things into small pieces, and for the production of raw materials for various products. However, they are so inefficient that most of the power used to operate them is used to generate heat. Therefore, if we can make them more efficient, i.e. if we can produce finer powders or more powders of the same size with the same power, we can make a significant contribution to energy conservation. With this in mind, we have developed and commercialised equipment to improve the efficiency of grinders and dryers, which also require a large amount of heat energy, for use by our customers.
