Hokuto Electronics Co., Ltd.

We manufacture special measuring instruments such as semiconductor inspection equipment and magnetic flaw detectors.

We develop and manufacture magnetic flaw detectors, image processors, and other kinds of special measuring instruments and inspection equipment, including semiconductor inspection equipment. We have about 30 staff members in our company. They are mostly engineers in the fields of electricity, machinery, and software, except for four staff members in the sales and back-office section. We conduct integrated in-house processing from product design to manufacturing. Our four major technologies are magnetic flow detection, microscopic capacitance measurement, microscopic signal processing, and image processing. We have the capability to develop and manufacture sensors for magnetic flaw detectors, which is rare in Japan, as well as the flaw detectors themselves. We are cultivating new customers in fields from semiconductors and automobiles to civil engineering, construction, and the environment.

[Company strength]
We conduct integrated processing from product design to manufacturing. We have about 30 staff members in our company. They are mostly engineers in the fields of electricity, machinery, software, and manufacturing. We are a group of skilled engineers that undertakes development and manufacturing of custom-order measuring equipment and inspection equipment. We have only four staff members in the back-office section who handle general affairs, procurement, and sales. We are strongly committed to Monozukuri craftsmanship in terms of quality, cost, and delivery. This is the reason why we receive support from our users, and it constitutes our company’s strength.



[Business description]
Our company designs, develops, and manufactures semiconductor inspection equipment, magnetic flaw detectors, image processors, and other kinds of special measuring instrument and inspecting equipment.

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our four major technologies are magnetic flow detection, microscopic capacitance measurement, microscopic signal processing, and image processing. We have the capability to develop and manufacture sensors for magnetic flaw detectors, which is rare in Japan, as well as the flaw detectors themselves. We handle various problems related to flaw detection based on inquiries from domestic Japanese customers. We have the technology to measure microscopic capacitance up to 1fF (femtofarads). We make use of this technology in important equipment used at semiconductor manufacturing sites in Japan and abroad.

[Representative's message]
Efficient inspection and measurement are required in the civil engineering and construction field because of the aging of buildings and tunnels constructed in the past. The demand in this area is expected to further increase given the decision to hold the Tokyo Olympic Games. We are investigating the possibility that we can take on such demand. Electronic articles have become indispensable in today’s automotive industry. Various sensors and measurements are utilized from the development stage. We are seeking out demand and investigating the possibility that we can support customers in this field. We have begun to engage in various activities in the ecology and environment field. Industries related to the environment seem to be expanding, so we hope to investigate the possibility of assisting customers in this field.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We have already completed many transactions with major companies, and we have been improving our quality assurance and environment preservation by acquiring ISO certification. We have also assigned sales engineers in order to support customers in finding solutions. We have established a point of contact in our sales department which is in charge of business with overseas companies.



[Market share/Ranking]
Our ion counters have a 50% share of the domestic Japanese market (in-house investigation).
