Q. I. Incorporated

We supply camera equipment for inspecting special environments such as underwater and the interior of sewer pipes. 

We develop, design, manufacture, and sell TV camera equipment and robots for inspections in special environments, such as underwater, the interior of sewage pipes, and radiation exposure environments. We have an extensive track record of globally unique products. These include the deep-sea camera onboard the Shinkai 2000 research vessel and the nuclear reactor investigation robot to be used for the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. We have been accumulating technical know-how regarding products that are used in special environments such as high pressure, high temperature, and strong radiation exposure. We develop customer-oriented products by making full use of our knowledge, experience, and technology power of underwater TV cameras and self-propelled in-pipe inspection cameras.

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our technology and products are supported by our three strengths. 
(1) Accumulation of technical know-how on products used in special environments (such as high pressure, high temperature, and strong radiation exposure).
(2) Experienced technical staff who deal with design, manufacturing, and maintenance.
(3) A manufacturing system that provides high-quality products in a short delivery time and at a low price by making use of a quality management system (ISO 9000).
We have been practicing the pursuit of creative technology power since our foundation in 1971. We continuously manufacture globally unique products. We made the deep-sea camera onboard the Shinkai 2000 research vessel. We recently developed a nuclear reactor survey robot to be used at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.

[Representative's message]
Human beings have been discovering and utilizing various things on this Earth with the progress of science and technology. The area of our activity has expanded everywhere from space to underground and the ocean floor. The need for close investigation of places that people cannot directly observe has been increasing more and more in order to maintain safety, security, and growth in daily life. We hope to make use of our wealth of knowledge, experience, and technology power to support these needs, take on the challenge of new areas, and contribute to society.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We have established a point of contact for inquiries by telephone or E-mail, which will support inquiries from overseas companies and major domestic Japanese companies. Our sales staff in charge will then contact and support the customer directly. Our technical staff will accompany the visit to the customer if necessary in order to make specific proposals about products.
