Revival of world's leading manufacturing center of yarn-dyed textile (Banshu-brocade)

Katamaya is the established trading company of weaving machines since 1913 in the manufacturing center of Banshu-brocade which has 200 years of tradition. Recently, the manufacturing center was hard hit by low-price imported products and was depressed due to drastic decline of production. To survive, under the circumstance, "high-mix low-volume production system" was urgently required to differentiate from imported products by high-value added products.

Technology development of world's first
"high-mix low-volume production system"

In traditional textile manufacturing sites, the warping had to be prepared for each colored pattern whenever the colored pattern changed. Accordingly the system needed too much cost and a lot of time to make "high-mix low-volume production " according to the diversification of consumer needs, and it was the major issue of the manufacturing center. Based on the needs of the manufacturing sites, it succeeded in the development of creative and innovative control machine capable of winding&knotting 9 different-colored yarns into a thread by reeling stretch warps in uniform length.

Improvement of international competitiveness

The excellent development helps to exclude replacing works of warps and reduce cost by using remaining warp-yarns, and develop new products with design performance. So, it improves the international competitiveness. As the result of those efforts, it received Prime Minister's Prize of 1st Japan Manufacturing Award in 2005.
