memory shape memory a characteristic of bamboo is that it keeps its shape when it is heated and bent the takumi also added glue that hardens when heated and salt of repulsion force issue the bamboo and glue are bent while being heated at a high frequency it s ready in about ten minutes now it won t budge at all it must have been very difficult to reach this point yes we faced many issues for example with the bamboo bending but not sticking together properly we work through each problem and are now able to mass-produce the steering wheels after the bamboo material has hardened its polished coated and put through other processes until it s
all yah no ha no Nick hanamachi I do know the more Tokyo pedal son Scotty Alicia Theodore by 3 dog agility bamboo is widely used because it can be easily manipulated it is fibrous and easily splits lengthwise when heated it becomes pliable as it cools it harness and retains the shape so no mana so diagonal target no mediocre magazine you ll never get a guru so so I offer four varieties of bamboo which are grown locally and treated by highly skilled artisans are specially branded as Kyoto bamboo white bamboo has a wide range of uses from construction to craft work so it is the most produced variety of Kyoto bamboo it is made from medaka or timber bamboo which grows wild in abundance throughout the country medaka has exceptional resilience and durability the felled medaka is placed over a fire and the oil that sweats to the surface is carefully wiped off this removes the chlorophyll the white and medaka is then dried in the Sun for two weeks the finished product has an amber
the moisture level was one of the issues we faced if the moisture is removed then the mold problem will be solved however the loss of moisture would cause the self to collapse and the bamboo processed as a steering wheel the material could take in moisture and expand so my des came up with the method of filling a special pressure furnace with vapor to restore the bamboo cells to their original shape a characteristic of bamboo cells is that the cell walls have the best moisture absorbency when placed in a special pressure furnace and exposed to vapor the cell walls regain their original shape when the moisture reached 20% the bamboo regained its original thickness once it s taken out the pressure furnace it can be dried again without fear of the cells collapsing because there s no moisture within the cells this is how the takuna succeeded in making a stable material
