Because of the high precision, they are often used alongside industrial robots. Some of their fastest belts clock in at 120m per minute, which are great for large-scale factories overseas.
“HITORISHIZUKA” developed by Shizuka Inc. is a completely new soundproofing material used for the prevention of industrial/machinery noise. It cuts the noise with a thin and light material and absorbs the noise with a hard material. “HITORISHIZUKA” overturned the conventional wisdom that thick and heavy materials are for cutting the noise and soft materials are for absorbing the noise. Moreover, it covers low-frequency noise unable to insulate with common soundproofing materials and is easily processed according to the sound source. This unique soundproofing panel is now gathering lots of attention from domestic factory makers and highways to construction sites as a noise countermeasure.
