customer's voice

We strive every day to provide safe and stable transportation so that our customers can use our services with peace of mind and comfort. We have adopted HIREC in order to prevent large operational disruptions caused by snow accretion on the vehicle during snowfall and to provide stable transportation.

During the heavy snowfall in February 2014, we were able to minimize disruptions to train operations, and were able to efficiently remove the snow that had accumulated on the train cars. I have confirmed.

We plan to complete the adoption of this system in all vehicles by the end of fiscal 2014.

Anti-snow materialAmong them, there was a request from the customer for measures to prevent snow accretion (snow cornice) on the equipment, and as a countermeasure, we installed snow accretion prevention materials.

In order to further increase security and safety, we not only installed the parts, but also selected and painted the Super hydrophobic material HIREC, which is effective in preventing snow build-up.We have been able to see the effectiveness of snow build-up prevention measures and have satisfied customers.

customer's voice

In general, if torrential rain or heavy snow occurs during reception of satellite broadcasting, the image may be disturbed. We are always working to ensure that our subscribers are satisfied with our broadcasting services even in bad weather.

In order to further improve the quality of the broadcasts we provide to our customers, we have adopted HIREC as a countermeasure against snow and ice accretion on the surface of our large parabolic antenna for reception.

After painting the parabolic antenna with HIREC, the amount of radio wave attenuation during rain and snowfall is reduced, and we can clearly see the difference in effect compared to before painting.
