Support for Environmental Protection
Kito strives for clean manufacturing with minimum environmental impact in our comprehensive in-house production of everything from parts to final products. An action principle in our effort to protect the environment is to reduce our carbon footprint and prevent pollution in daily operations and throughout the lifecycles of our products through goal-directed management systems. This is how we contribute to helping build a rich, sustainable society in harmony with the earth.
Our Yamanashi Main Plant in Japan and our plant in Jiangyin, China achieved international ISO 14001 certification for environmental management. At our main plant, we promote
production processes that are efficient and have minimal impact on the environment. This is achieved through improving production equipment and waste procedures and through
the establishment of in-house regulations for harmful substances and green procurement guidelines. A good example of our results in this area is the introduction of our powder coating system in the period ended March 2018. This system enabled us to successfully cut the use of organic solvents by 90% compared to the volume in fiscal 2015. One of our main products, the EQ hoist (capacity: 980kg), acquired the EcoLeaf environmental label. Under this program, the Japan Environmental Management Association for Industry (JEMAI) quantifies the environmental impact of a given product throughout its life cycle, publishes the data, and certifies products considered environment friendly.
As an environmental measure, several environmentally hazardous substances specified by KITO, including 6 European RoHS directive substances, are not used.
Further, an energy-savings can be made due to a reduction in rated current draw compared to the previous ER.
The utilization of the inverter, 4-pole motor as well as the electromagnetic brake, reduces the noise during operation and braking.
