Hiki Optics CO., LTD.
We develop mainly interchangeable lenses for digital single-lens reflex cameras and surveillance camera lenses.
Since our foundation, we have been engaged in mass production of optical equipment as OEM for major companies. We develop, design, prototype, and mass produce optical lenses and assemble, manufacture, and sell image processing equipment. In recent years, we have been developing real-time panoramic image technologies using fish-eye lenses, which are under attention from various sectors. We are also developing products for the energy and security sectors, as well as nursing care and general medical equipment.
- Lens assembly
Even parts made exactly as shown in drawings do not always become good products after assembly. They will just become the form specified in the drawings. Fine adjustment capabilities will be needed to make subtle adjustments to the operation feeling and optical axis. We employ analog methods to solve problems that cannot be resolved digitally.
[Company strength] We have been engaged in ultra-precision assembly for many years, and have a fine-tuning technology for micron order in optical products. We can handle all processes from prototyping to mass production in-house. [Business description] We design, prototype, and mass produce optical lenses, as well as assemble, manufacture, and sell image processing equipment. Our main products are interchangeable lenses for digital single-lens reflex cameras and surveillance camera lenses. We have also started developing products for the energy sector, security products, and nursing care and general medical equipment in addition to optical products. [Industry] Precision apparatus [Strength of products/technologies] Light that goes through a lens is invisible. It can be viewed when it becomes an image. Skilled workers are required to fine-tune the lens to approximate the optical path to the designed value. This technology cannot be automated at present, and requires outstanding techniques and judgment. We guarantee a stable quality. [Representative's message] Since our foundation, we have been engaged in mass production of optical equipment as OEM for major companies for 42 years. The trend is now for optimal production near consumer areas, therefore mass production in Japan is in a difficult situation. However, we aim to become a financially independent, R&D type enterprise, and not remaining as a subcontractor of major companies. In recent years, we have been developing real-time panoramic image technologies with fish-eye lens es, which are attracting attention from various sectors. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] Our president will consult with new customers or customers from abroad. Our Engineering Division people led by the president will respond to requests for technical consultations. For customers from South Korea , China, Hong Kong, and Southeast Asian countries, our overseas subsidiary of Mabuchi S & T (our parent company) can respond to their inquiries as well.
