【The Spinning Technology】

Yarn-spinning

The work of spinning yarn from cotton using a spinning wheel is demonstrated.

Garabo Spinning Machine

A spinning machine created with original Japanese technology. This demonstration shows power-driven Garabo spinning powered by a waterwheel.

Drawing Frame

Several strands of sliver, cotton that is loosened and the fibers aligned into thick strands, are formed into a single strand by passing them between rollers to create a uniform thickness and make the fibers parallel.

Fly Frame

The sliver produced by the drawing frame is drawn and wound by a spinning U-shaped metal device called a flyer to create strands of roving.

Ring Spinning Frame

The roving produced by the fly frame is drawn out thin, twisted, and wound around a bobbin to create yarn.

【Cloth-Weaving Technology】

Toyoda Wooden Hand Loom

In 1890, Sakichi Toyoda invented a loom that could be easily operated with one hand. This improved productivity and quality and Sakichi obtained his first patent.

Toyoda Power Loom

Invented by Sakichi Toyoda in 1896, this is Japan’s first power loom. A single worker could operate about 4 machines, making them 20 times more productive than before.

Type G Automatic Loom

The non-stop shuttle-change Toyoda automatic loom, type G, was completed in 1924 by Sakichi Toyoda, and achieved the highest performance in the world. This exhibit also demonstrates the loom’s patented innovations.

Water Jet Loom

A jet of water under high pressure is sprayed from the nozzle on the left side, inserting about 700 weft yarn per minute. It weaves synthetic fibers like nylon and polyester.

Air Jet Loom

Compressed air is used to insert weft yarn. It can weave complex patterns by moving the warp yarn up and down with a harness of yellow wire that comes out of the device at the top, called an electronic jacquard.

Steering Knuckles Forging

Watch the forging processes of the 1930s and 1940s. In those days, each part was made individually by hand, requiring highly advanced skills and creativity by the technicians.

2,500-ton Automatic Forging

Introduced in 1964, this is Toyota’s first automatic forging press. It was the first in the world to make it possible to forge two connecting rods at the same time.

600-ton Press

Watch the Quick Die Change(QDC), which greatly reduced the time needed to change dies. This innovation made it possible to produce many different parts with a single machine.

Main Body Assembly Automatic Welder

Manufactured in 2015, this automatic welder combines assembly jigs with multi-spot welding to handle mass production and multiple vehicle models.

Automatic Top Coat Applicator

Introduced in 1981, this machine applies the top coat of body paint. By blowing on paint that uses static electricity, it keeps the waste of paint below roughly 20%.

Automatic Mounting of Engine and Chassis

Introduced in 1993, this machine moves together with the body on the assembly line to automatically mount the engine and chassis.

MovieOther

Circular Loom

This symbolizes the “spirit of being studious and creative” that the museum communicates. It is the original loom invented in 1906 by Sakichi Toyoda, the founder of the Toyota Group, and it weaves fabric using a rotating circular motion.

Steam Engine

This steam engine manufactured by Sulzer Brothers Co.,Ltd.of Switzerland dates from the same period as one installed in 1914. It provided the power that drove development of industrial technology and played a major role in the modernization of Japan’s industry.

Partner Robot Violin

This robot made its debut in the Japanese Pavilion at Expo 2010 Shanghai, and began performing at this museum in June 2014. It is a bipedal partner robot whose delicate fingering and arm movements enable it to play the violin just like a human.

【Demonstration of Metal Working Technologies】

Casting

Molten metal is poured into a metal (or sand) mold, where it hardens. This demonstration shows the casting of a small aluminum cylinder block.

Forging

Heated metal is pressed into a metal mold to form special shapes. This demonstration shows the forging of a miniature connecting rod.

Cutting

A milling machine and drill press are used to cut the flat surface of an aluminum cylinder block and to drill holes. Visitors will be given the chance to operate the machinery themselves.
