Development Process

When it was recycled because the computer was controlled in around 1995, and it was complicated, there were various troubles, and a used engine had been said to the Dee cell engine by being not able to do the start confirmation by the unit recycling in the country was difficult. Everything failed, and it had a hard time though it had the sense of crisis in this, new development of the start examination machine was needed, and the people of a lot of industries worked on this development.
As a result, it seems that the recycling business of a used diesel engine rapidly promotes it in foreign countries not to mention the country.

In the Okuno car company, completion was able to be seen for the first time, and the development of the electronically controlled diesel engine start examination machine that studied the difficulty thoroughly was named e-Star (sigma Easter) by this new coordinated participation business. Additionally, e-Star (sigma Easter) was applied, an electronically controlled diesel engine in foreign countries put, and engine controller "JAMANER-e (Jamanare)" that was able to be substituted was completed.

Production Mana project chronology

2001 Year

"Japanese track refinement part society" that centers on production and sales of the recycling parts that specialize in the track is established. The development of the electronically controlled diesel engine start examination machine is made the pillar of the business scheme, and it works on development.

2002 Year

It turns to a related organization outside the prefecture as OKUNO AUTOMOBILE Co.,Ltd. and it turns to the development request.
