Vanguard Systems Inc.

We are a motion control solution company.

We develop, manufacture, and sell various drivers and controllers mainly motion control products and their application products.  We also develop and sell taping machines.  We have succeeded in the development of an electric screwdriver capable of tightening M0.8 fine screws.  We have also developed a high-precision and high-efficiency closed-loop stepping system that can replaced high-cost AC servo motors.  This system enables “high torque” “low vibration” “step-out-less” “power saving” and “low heat generation.”

[Company strength]
We were founded in 1986.  Our founders started this company to create and market products and services with unique technologies.  Our company name is to remind ourselves of our starting point forever.  We have received a lot of media coverage including the World Business Satellite as a new type of manufacturing and solution company.  
We began our business from manufacturing and sale of semiconductor control devices, and now have a wide range of motor control technologies.  We particularly focus on products resulting from our latest research, but we also have a wide lineup of other products and services based on our know-how and technologies on “motion control”.  Examples include taping machines, peel strength testers, AC/DC servo drivers, and visual inspection and taping services utilizing these products.  We offer a variety of solutions to customers who have problems with “motion control.”

[Business description]
- Development, manufacturing, and sale of various drivers, mainly motion control products and their application products (such as fine screw tightening electric screwdriver) 
- Development and sale of taping machines (HPtec division) 
- Taping processing and appearance inspection services (Taping service division)

[Industry]
Electrical machinery manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
We have succeeded in developing a product called ST-SERVO (closed-loop stepping system), which is a revolutionary core technology. It is a high-precision and high-efficiency closed-loop stepping system that can replace a high-cost AC servo motor.  It uses a high-resolution encoder similar to the AC servo. While maintaining high positional accuracy, it can construct a less expensive system.  By applying the vector control technology, it will achieve “high torque” “low vibration” “step-out-less” “power saving” and “low heat generation.” It can make “torque control” that cannot be provided by the conventional stepping motor.
We have acquired intellectual property rights for these core technologies, and are ready to respond to new needs and proposals. 

[Representative's message]
We have succeeded in the development of an electric screwdriver capable of tightening M0.8 fine screws, which are used in the commercial/industrial equipment EMS.  The Chinese governments' renewed robot policies are expected to create a robotics market of 140 billion yen in 2015.  Electric screwdrivers are expected to take up 2.5 billion yen of the market.  If we successfully deploy standardization activities and hold the de facto at the onset of the market formation, it will contribute not only to us but to the advantages of the Japanese robot industry as well.  We are eager to expand our business to East and Southeast Asian markets, as well as the US and European markets in 2014.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
The market of automation using micro screws has high potential but is yet to be clearly formed.  So, we have launched a new business planning office independent from other  businesses to find market needs with a small and agile organizational unit through trial-and-error.  We will ensure an increase of the sales of electric screwdrivers first, then introduce ST-SERVO which is the core technology and expand the sales of motion control solutions business.
