Making the world sustainable with new manufacturing technologies

The ever expanding world of electronics

The growth in number of connected devices

With the advancements in 5G, IoT, self-driving vehicles and robotics, it is quite possible that we are entering an era in which all things shall be loaded with electronics.

Resources on the verge of being depleted

The manufacturing industry worsening water shortage

The manufacturing industry worsening water shortage

Up till now, electronics has been an industry that uses vast amounts of water and metal resources, emitting great quantities of waste.In a world where 1.8 billion people are forecast to suffer from critical water shortage by 2025, it is hard to argue for the sustainability of the electronics industry as it stands now.

The future of electronics

Taking the example of printed circuit boards, the conventional manufacturing method was an extremely long process in which copper foil is manufactured, laminated with film (production of CCL), and laminated with photosensitive materials before the desired copper pattern is achieved by dissolving and discarding the copper foil from unnecessary parts by exposure, development and etching.

Our process achieves the desired copper pattern by printing the metal onto film and growing it, not only forgoing the need for copper foil manufacturing and CCL manufacturing processes but also eliminating the need for the etching process to dissolve and discard the copper foil.

After 4 years of R&D, we have succeeded in mass production

A unique technology that enables mass production

By combining various technologies,
we were able to raise our production to mass production level

A new paradigm for the manufacturing industry

Historically, the manufacturing industry has been transitioning from developed to developing countries
because it consumes a great deal of resources and energy,
emits a large amount of waste, and produces in great volumes.

Furthermore, if you take the example of the coastal areas of China,
the manufacturing industry is transitioning further inland
or to other countries as environmental regulations are rapidly becoming stricter.
However, we do not believe that
burdening 'cheaper' developing regions in such a manner is the right path for Japan to pursue.

Rather, we believe that it is Japan's role to develop resource
and energy saving technologies and to spread these to the world.
