As a "creator of work environments," Aichi Corporation has changed the environment of a variety of workplaces.
Here are some of the ways in which it has affected and contributed to the electric power, communications, shipbuilding, construction, and railroad industries.

Electric power industry

Transformation of conventional power distribution work

Release to market of digger derricks, pole setters, and digger derrick / pole setters. This greatly improved the efficiency of pole setting work, which had previously been done by man power. Power distribution work, which had been done by people climbing electricity poles, was mechanized using aerial vehicles. This dramatically reduced incidences of electric shock, which had previously been a top priority task. In addition, aerial vehicles were able to vary their height or workplace and also rapidly improved work efficiency. This also contributed to the spread of the “live-line working method” for performing engineering work without stopping the electricity.


Before mechanization, man power was at the center of every worksite.


Today, work to achieve improvement in safety and cost reduction is being performed by aerial vehicles.

Communications industry

Contribution to eliminating deaths in falls

Power distribution work, which had been done by people climbing electricity poles, was mechanized using aerial vehicles. This contributed to a dramatic decrease in falls. In addition, aerial vehicles were introduced alongside a set of education and training that included safety lectures and explanatory meetings on handling. This promoted the elimination of accidents. Recently, the development of battery-powered vehicles has achieved noise reduction and more environmentally friendly vehicles.

At the time, work was generally performed while stabilizing the posture by a safety rope.


With the aerial vehicle, climbing utility poles became no longer necessary.

Shipbuilding industry

Realization of the non-scaffold construction method

Aerial vehicles eliminated the scaffolding that had previously been conventional in shipyards. Today, scenes of active non-scaffold construction using aerial vehicles are commonplace in Japan and around the world. Eliminating the need to assemble scaffolding greatly reduced working time and costs, and has contributed to a reduction in falls during work.

The work of assembling scaffolding for erecting and razing required a lot of time.


Work efficiency is significantly improved without the need to assemble scaffolding.

Construction industry

Achievement of shorter construction times

Great technological strength overcame problems and enabled non-scaffold construction methods using aerial vehicles even on construction sites where the ground is bad. In addition, aerial vehicles were miniaturized to enable them to fit on elevators for work. It became possible for them to be used indoors and run with the work floor raised, which resulted in remarkable improvements in the efficiency of indoor work.

Improved work efficiency as "mobile scaffolding."


Small type for moving freely between floors.

Railroad industry

Improvement of work mobility

The railroad industry works against time. Railroad construction is restricted to the time between the passage of the last train and the start of the first train. Developing a vehicle that can run on tires and on train wheels enabled work to start smoothly once the last train had gone. The mobility of work as a whole has been improved and a more comfortable working environment has been created.

Railroad construction must be performed during limited nighttime hours.
