Karakuri Training Units

Miniature karakuri training units are the perfect tool for lean engineers, maintenance technicians, and operators. Easy to build, these kits teach how and why karakuri automation works.

About Miniature Karakuri

SUS America offers two types of miniature training kits: mechanisms and structures.

Miniature mechanisms focus on a single karakuri element such as a stopper or turn. These are ideal for individuals with experience building whole structures who want to focus on specific simple automation elements. Miniature structures are scaled-down replicas of traditional karakuri structures. Building and rebuilding these units provides both karakuri and structural assembly training.
