We are engaged in Asia-wide expansion of our businesses involving carrier tape for storing electronic parts and taping equipment.

We manufacture carrier tapes with sizes of 0.2 mm × 0.4 mm, etc., which support device miniaturization. We also develop taping equipment for sorters for LEDs and various electronic parts. We have established bases in the Philippines, China, Taiwan, Malaysia, and Korea, and are accelerating the global expansion of our manufacturing, sales, and maintenance businesses.

[Company strength]
We have been developing our embossed carrier tape and taping equipment for more than 30 years.
Our technology has now become the global standard. We are the only company that manufactures tapes and equipment together. We directly take on the challenge of every kind of difficult issue.
We offer integrated vertical processing from equipment development to the design and manufacture of metallic molds. This can be realized through our in-house manufacturing line and through our subcontractors. We can support detailed requirements from our client companies.

[Business description]
In 1944 we devised a knitting machine for household use. Commodities were insufficient in the postwar period, and during this time we developed more than 100 patents and expanded our products worldwide, as well as in Japan. This was when our products gained in popularity. In 1979 we devised the world’s first embossed carrier tape. In 1980 we developed our taping equipment, which laid the foundations of our current business. Our products including our post-process chip mounter have contributed to major innovations in the work process. This includes speeding up work in which electronic parts are assembled onto substrates, and improving efficiency. We are currently expanding our global manufacturing, sales, and maintenance business by establishing bases in the Philippines, China, Taiwan, Malaysia, and Korea.

Electronic parts-related equipment manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our carrier tapes are sold to every field of semiconductor and electronic parts manufacturing. We manufacture these products in our in-house factories in Japan, the Philippines, China, and Malaysia. We have a track record of deliveries to customers in Japan and all parts of Asia.
We have delivered our sorting equipment and taping equipment for electronic parts to almost all LED manufacturers in Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Malaysia, etc. We have recently been expanding our business to the Russia, India, and Vietnam markets.

[Representative's message]
Devices have been miniaturized. We manufacture carrier tapes, sorting equipment for LEDs, and taping equipment for various electronic parts. These support sizes including 0.2 mm × 0.4 mm, etc.
We have also developed wafer ring supply taping equipment. The electronic component is picked up using the wafer ring, various inspections (electrical characteristics, imaging inspections, etc.) are conducted, and the wafer ring is then inserted into the carrier tape. 

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We have focused on a direct sales system thus far. However, we hope to ask for support from trading companies, sales agencies, etc. in expanding to new markets (Europe, the US, South America, the Middle East) and new industries.
We place importance on after-sale maintenance. We will perform after-sale care in cooperation with our service bases at our headquarters, and in China (3 bases), Taiwan, Korea and Malaysia.

[Market share/Ranking]
1) This company is in direct competition for market share with the top carrier tape corporations in the world: #1 3M (USA), #2 Advantek (Singapore), #3 C-PAK (Singapore), #4 Shin-Etsu Polymer (Japan), and #5 / #6 Nippo (Japan).  2) In the niche markets of sorting devices and taping machines this company is in competition with other domestic makers such as Shibuya Kogyo, Tokyo Weld, and O-Tech.
