Toto is a major Japanese designer and manufacturer
of sanitary equipment and plumbing products.
To support their design program, Toto used a Roland PNC-300 to
produce their prototypes in-house. The design staff at Toto found
the Roland PNC-300 gave good results, was easy to use and improved
their design skills. However when the quantity and size of prototypes
began to exceed its capacity, Toto looked for an additional prototyping
machine to support the PNC-300.
Their review of prototyping products encompassed stereo lithography,
paper lamination, NC and CNC machines. In the end they selected
a Roland MDX-500 for its ease of use, ease to set-up and high capacity.
