KIS(Kasai Innovation System)

This is our own next generation technology.

KIS is our interior parts development system established to meet the requests of automobile manufacturers to shorten the development period.

KIS is our interior parts development system established to meet the requests of automobile manufacturers to shorten the development period.

We employ the following efforts during the design phase to assist in shortening overall development period:

  1. 1. Accumulation of know-how concerning the manufacturing of Kasai's principle products such as door trim panels, etc.
  2. 2. Standardization of know-how for design and production to enable a consistent process from product design to mold production.
  3. 3. Establishment of an original "Design NAVI" system to navigate semi-automated CAD templates/design procedures.

During the mold production phase, we use the results of our data to employ state of the art cutting technology, which greatly reduces the time and number of operators required for manufacturing metal die for cutting. We strive to manufacture high-quality and consistent metal dies, which all achieve 100% dimension approval ratio upon first delivery, earlier than usual.

We at KASAI conduct the joint development with customers effectively with some functions of KIS at our overseas design bases.

Design NAVI system

The Design NAVI system allows user to conduct design works while checking the required design procedure and reference materials with each design item. This leads to the reduction of research time and reworking.

Mold NAVI System

The Mold NAVI system to centrally manage all information required for mold manufacturing such as mold design data, processing data, machining procedure or working tool enables the consistent quality and high productivity.

Product Design


For product designing, we employ 3D template to study customer's specification conditions and our manufacturing requirements. This 3D template contributes to the shortening of design period and improvement of design quality by semi-automatic product designing.

  1. 1. Procedure of 3D template

    The following is the procedure to put the template of a fixed body shape within the red frame of a door trim.

    Procedure of 3D template
  2. 2. Creation of fixed position (entry data)

    Create the required information (entry data) to use a template.
    As this figure shows, make a fixed position.

    Creation of fixed position (entry data)
  3. 3. Automatic creation of a shape

    A shape is created automatically by using a template for a fixed position.
    As shown by this figure, the initially created position of a template interferes with other structure.

    Automatic creation of a shape
  4. 4. Study of shape feasibility

    Any shape created by a template can be adjusted in accordance to various requirements such as design, mold and production engineering requirements.

    As this figure shows, adjust an angle to the appropriate position that has no interference with other structure.

    Study of shape feasibility
  5. 5. End of study

    The shape position is changed by adjusting an angle.
    This system allows the semi-automated shape creation. This contributes to the reduction of design time and improvement of design quality.

    End of study

Production Engineering


In Production Engineering, feasibility of mold constructing is studied with simple mold structure module (SE TOOL) based on pravided date from production design. This study contributes to the solving of mold structure related problems one by one at the development stage.

  1. 1. Selection of a structure

    Select a mold structure module based on product shape studied by design and production engineering requirements.

    Selection of a structure
  2. 2. Check of mold structure feasibility

    Any problems related to mold structure feasibility not identifiable by a product alone can be checked by mold structure module.

    Check of die structure feasibility
  3. 3. Feedback on mold feasibility related problems to product design

    In case of feasibility problems for mold structure, provide the feedback to product design about mold structure change or change request of product shape.

    Feedback on die feasibility related problems to product design
  4. 4. Check of correction of product data

    Check whether or not the details of feedback are corrected. Digital lot related issues can be solved by repeating study and feedback.

Mold Design


Based on date from production engineering, mold is designed in detail applying mold master models and mold design module (3D semi-automuted mold design system). To apply both mold master model and mold design module allows the significant reduction of a mold design period and production with consistent quality.

  1. 1. Enter of mold specification data

    The master model of a mold is created semi-automatically by entering parameters of a mold studied by production engineering.

    Enter of die specification data
  2. 2. Automatic placement of mold parts

    To enter data for divided surface model of product and parts placement allows the semi-automated design of a mold concept.

    Automatic placement of die parts
  3. 3. Detailed design of mold

    The details of a mold are designed by placing required mold parts and adjusting dimension, location or shape parametrically. To design the details allows the significant shortening of mold design period and production of consistent quality mold.
