The Kojima Research Center develops fundamental and advanced technologies in response to ever-changing business environments and customer needs. Our aim is to keep applying our unique technologies to the production of products that make our customers happy and contribute to society.
1. CAE analysis
Computer technology is used to simulate product design and construction in advance. Analyzing product deformation and stress in advance is used to find less expensive ways to produce the product.
2. Electromagnetic darkroom (vehicle testing)
This room has an electromagnetic shield performance in the 20 MHz to 4 GHz range and has a vehicle turntable at its center. The electromagnetic interference level can be measured and evaluated while the components are installed in the vehicle.
3. Electromagnetic darkroom (component testing)
The darkroom is 8.5 m wide and 15.5 m high and handles a frequency range from 2 GHz to 100 GHz. It is used to evaluate antennas for intelligent transport systems (ITS).
4. Acoustic testing
This is used to analyze the sources of product noise and vibration.
5. Pulse testing
This evaluates the flow and sound of air passing through the air intake system and is also used for research on making exhaust gas cleaner.
6. Wind tunnel testing
This small wind tunnel shows the flow of air around exterior components to find their optimal shape.
7. Impact testing
Here, safety components are evaluated and tested for the safety of vehicle passengers and pedestrians.
8. 3-axis vibration testing
Vibration evaluation and testing is conducted to determine product safety, reliability, and durability.
9. Durability testing
Various durability tests are conducted, including high-temperature tank tests and vibration testing.
10. X-ray analysis
Various analyses are performed on metal and solder elements for quality control.
11. Electrical wire analysis
Minute samples of a variety of materials, including plastic and metal, are analyzed to facilitate the development of new products by identifying materials and analyzing composition.
12. Gas chromatography
This is used to measure the environmental impact of the materials contained in our products, and to improve product quality.
