Y DRIVE Co., Ltd.

We support LCD and organic EL TV product manufacturing with our excellent ink jetting control technology.

Ink jetting control technology is indispensable for manufacturing organic EL TV and organic EL lighting products by making the best use of printed electronics (the printing method). We develop and sell various kinds of evaluation equipment for printed electronics and experimental machines for R&D by utilizing our knowledge about this technology. We also develop and sell various electronic control boards for ink jetting as well as printed electronics. We do business with major manufacturers of electric machines.

[Company strength]
The development of organic EL TVs and organic EL lighting by using printed electronics (printable electronics) has been reported in recent years. Our company promotes printed electronics driven by ink jetting control technology that is indispensable for manufacturing these products. If LCD and organic EL TV products manufacturing begins with printed electronics, the product field will grow with the expansion of production. We think of this as a source of our future growth.

[Business description]
We develop and sell various kinds of evaluation equipment for printed electronics (printable electronics) and experimental machines for R&D. Our core technology, DPN (Drive Per Nozzle: driving each nozzle of an inkjet print head), is a precision ink jetting technology necessary for industrial ink jetting equipment. We developed the industry’s first flying ink droplet monitoring equipment with ±1% accuracy. It can be combined with a driving waveform tool to reduce dispersion between the nozzles of an inkjet print head from about 30% to 2%. We also develop and sell various electronic control boards for ink jetting as well as printed electronics (printable electronics), jetting evaluation machines, and printing machines for R&D.

Electronic equipment manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
1. DPN (Drive Per Nozzle: driving each nozzle of an inkjet print head) is our core technology for precision ink jetting control. We are the only company that is ready to provide precision ink jetting control to each equipment manufacturer. No other companies use technologies for measuring ink volume with error of at most 1% and for high-accuracy control of each nozzle for precision coating volume control.
2. We have implemented a precision driving amp technology with an FET circuit for various PZT inkjet print heads.

[Representative's message]
1. Printed electronics is the last remaining Monozukuri craftsmanship technology for Japan in the field of electronic equipment. Our concept is to save this technology for Japan to support our prosperity. We will develop the core technology for printed electronics ourselves and contribute to industrial promotion.
2. We will use the advantages of a small startup for Monozukuri craftsmanship that major companies cannot perform. We will work aggressively to pioneer and prototype products to contribute to revitalizing the local area.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
<Transactions with major companies> Our company mainly does business with major equipment manufacturers. We are strengthening our development system in the field of ink jetting control to enable a constant supply of cutting-edge technologies, and we are trying to incorporate new technologies.
<Overseas expansion> Not under consideration at this time.
