“105” Encrusting Machine Model Recognized as Part of Japan’s Mechanical Engineering Heritage
In recognition of the “105” encrusting machine model’s status as a machine technology of historical significance in Japan, The Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME) certified it as a “Mechanical Engineering Heritage” asset. The primary reason for this recognition was that 1,838 units were sold over an eight-year period, which greatly contributed to the modernization of the food industry. When it was launched, a TV commercial featuring actor E. H. Erick was released, and the model is legendary for familiarizing many people outside the industry with encrusting machines.
