[Company strength]
Our core technologies are assembling microscope and optical devices, which have been cultivated over 50 years since our foundation. We are especially proud of the “grinding of dovetail groove” which is provided only by precise and delicate hand work of craftsmen. We are specialized in manufacturing by manual sliding mechanism which provides excellent smoothness and durability and without any feeling stiff, unevenness, squeak, backlash, and looseness, even in case of long stroke. Further, we provide creative products with high value by managing all processes from development and design to final assembling by obtaining intellectual property rights with a concept in mind that development generates intellectual properties.

[Business description]
We develop, design and manufacture microscope, optical devices, positioning slide stage, and precision machinery tools. In addition to our original brand products, we also support customers to develop products according to their needs and specifications, including provision of OEM. Manufacturing of customized products is also available.

Optical and precision device manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our products are regularly used as essential items for “measurement, inspection, centering and positioning.” Wide variety of combinations with various mirror units, lenses, eyepiece graticule, stand, and lighting device are available for measuring tool microscope, which is our long-selling product since our foundation. Our products featuring dovetail groove type stage, which has acquired 15 patents 34 design rights and 8 trademark rights (many others are pending), are original with reliable quality supported by concentration of our craftsmen. We also provide a variety of lineups for image recognition lens and vacuum tweezers capable of meeting various needs.

[Representative's message]
We have been continuously  manufacturing measuring tool microscopes and vacuum tweezers since our foundation in 1963 concurrently with development of  our new lines of products including image recognition lenses and dovetail groove type stage based on the application of our optical assembling and grinding technologies as well as of new markets. We are trying to achieve global standards and considering how to embark on new fields by concurrently developing new products in search for conventional high value-added and cheaper products with limited function and quality. 

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We have newly established an overseas sales department in response to increasing orders from abroad. We have also  launched a framework of an inquiry center, in which design department or engineers in charge may directly handle technological inquiries and problems from users either in Japan or overseas.  President Muramatsu shall direct new market development and response to new clients. The entire staff is determined to aggressively target new domestic demands and prepare new proposals, while making efforts to be able to receive orders from areas expanded by overseas development.

[Market share/Ranking]
Domestic market shares: measuring tool microscope 40%, dovetail groove type stage 30%,  image recognition lens 10% vacuum tweezers 20%
