Integral molding is at the foundation of Asano design. In order to deliver excellent products to customers, we take advantage of 3D design throughout the process of product planning to manufacturing.
Three-dimensional design is used throughout the process from designing shapes suitable for individual customers to calculation of the theoretical value of strength. Furthermore, 3D printed samples are used to check the shapes of products in the manufacturing process. We aim to achieve product performance that goes beyond customer’s expectations by improving product design through repetitive approaches of turning ideas into excellent products.
By creating products with shapes for the human hand using metals, we create refined products of excellent usability that serve as your partner. You can see the results of our efforts in every detail of the products of Asano, which has pursued the possibility of stainless steel.
When planning a product optimized for actual use conditions from scratch and in order to imagine a product that demonstrates the best performance, we first need to consider a shape without limitations. The main feature of casted products, which are the specialties of Asano, is the high design flexibility enabled by integral molding. That is, casting is suitable for freely designing products without limitations, enabling us to create products in unprecedented shapes.
The gate can be opened by inserting a marine spike or screwdriver into the center hole of the body. The gate cannot be opened by any other method, which prevents detachment of the gate even if an object makes contact with the fitting under the sea. Although this requirement was considered very difficult to achieve, we produced the world’s first product, which has gained a high reputation since its release. The product is palm-sized and easy to use.
We broke the common practice of conventional blocks and adopted an asymmetric shape for the main body so that the fitting can pass through it without getting caught. Thanks to this shape, the sheave is covered by the main unit so that the rope does not get caught between the main unit and the sheave.
