This innovative system creates many merits.
There were disadvantages with conventional methods in that it was too large, not very effective for small tremors and required replacement after a severe earthquake.[The Advanced Damping Device]is an innovative technology that has resolved these problems, while at the same time significantly reducing costs.

Demonstrating the damper performance to the fullest.
As it transmits the story displacement and velocity of a building by amplifying them by two to three times, the Displacement and Velocity Amplification Mechanisms efficiently absorb vibration energy attributable to earthquakes and gale force winds.
As a result it provides the following advantages:
The number of required devices can be reduced to half or 2/3 in comparison to other methods.


It can improve comfort by demonstrating the effect even in tremors with little displacement.


The device is very compact due to a downscaling of the damper.

It comes in a smart and simple design.
Less intimidating thinner steel pipes are used for the brace. An innovative frame design that incorporates cast steel is used for the surrounding frame for earthquake reinforcement.
Robust steel with superior weldability created by the research and development of melting method and casting mold.

It will not obstruct openings.
Doors and windows can be installed with the compact device even in new buildings and for earthquake reinforcement where it is hard to make room for an aperture. It is also designed so that it will not affect natural lighting. @

Leave existing doors and windows as they are.

It will not prolong work periods.
As is it requires fewer numbers of devices to be installed work periods can be kept to a minimum. It is particularly effective for earthquake reinforcement where it is difficult to set work periods.
Note (Same period of construction is required if the number of devices to be installed is the same as other methods).

Reduce Costs.
The down-scaling of the damper, reduction in the number of devices to be installed and shortening of the work period allows you to keep costs to a minimum.
@
Fine adjustments can be made.
Screw type joints are used for the braces to allow for length adjustment. This allows for the ensuring of damping performance as well as an improvement in workability by the assimilation of construction error in constructing new buildings and production error in the surrounding frames. @

It is maintenance free.
[The Advanced Damping Device] does not require replacement after a severe earthquake and can safely deal with aftershocks. It is in principle maintenance-free, however will require visual inspection for oil leaks or rust to maintain performance and emergency inspection in the case of a scale 5 earthquake or fire.

Flexible installation.
mThe Advanced Damping Devicencan be set up where required and with the necessary quantity and as it does not require to be set up in a series of stories as in conventional methods, the level of freedom in designing increases without causing waste. @

No extra eccentricity stress (Earthquake strengthening).
The most important joints for the surrounding frame used in earthquake reinforcement uses high-strength, quality steel connected to the braces and damper at the core with a pin. This allows for story displacement to be transmitted to the device without failure. No extra eccentricity is stressed on the surrounding frame so that it can perform just as it is designed to do. @
