[Industry]
Inspection instrument manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
We have sold more than 7,000 inspection instruments to many makers for over 30 years. This is how we have accumulated know-how on various topics, including advanced image processing technologies and optical design for detecting flaws. We recently developed an inspection algorithm for regular patterned materials (materials with a repeating pattern). This algorithm enables detection without being affected by winding, stretching, or shrinkage of the material inside. You can introduce this instrument without sacrificing productivity, as the patterns do not have to be memorized beforehand. 

[Representative's message]
The environment surrounding manufacturers has already become borderless. We are working hard to improve our production processes to prepare for harsher competition in the market. Quality improvement and labor saving efforts are as essential to the development of a company as innovation in manufacturing technology. We will continue to help the world to enhance quality by focusing on quality improvement and by utilizing the latest technologies. 

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We have a market development department in our organization, which specializes in investigating needs in the production and sales departments and the market. This department supports new domestic and overseas projects until they are on track. Our development department can also promote business deals as they have an environment in which they can respond to technical matters. 

[Market share/Ranking]
Visual inspection devices for gravure printing: 42.4% share of the domestic Japanese market.
Visual inspection devices for printed web and printed sheet materials: 12.2% share of the world market (2012).
