A Delicate Button Reproduction

One late night in September, a young man broke a vending machine by repeatedly hitting its buttons. What was destroyed was a hamburger vending machine that was about 35 years old. After seeing the video on the news, Mr. HARA Ryuji, the president of H. I. Giken (Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture), offered to repair it free of charge. Mr. Hara ordered one of the buttons that had survived the destruction and measured it with a laser, and faithfully reproduced even the faded appearance of the button. The company received many hamburgers and ramune soda as a thank you gift.
