Nakamura Electric MFG. Co., Ltd.

Design, production and sales of explosion protected control equipment and communication equipment 

Our company has designed, produced and sold explosion protected electrical equipment for over 70 years since its establishment. Our technology has been cultivated through experiment and practice and is our strength. In addition, we are fully able to make common IT equipment explosion protective, and personal computers and other peripherals, including barcode scanners, cameras, handy terminals, keyboards and mouse, explosion protective. We have built a cooperative relationship with FEAM which is an explosion protected equipment manufacturer in Italy, as the first step of overseas deployment. 


Other presentation

[Company strength]
Our company is not a subcontractor in a major company’s group, but is an original manufacturer aiming at a gap industry, and good at high-mix low-volume production.
Our company is a professional manufacture of explosion protection controlled equipment and communication equipment.
We have sales bases in Tokyo and Osaka.
We can quickly respond to production of express goods and special goods, and specification changes.
We focus on cultivation of human resources on the basis of annual program of education and training.
Many of our customers are major companies, so it is easy to obtain information on overseas industries. 

[Business description]
Our company was established in 1946, has extended its performance in explosion protected mining equipment in the tailwind of a coal economy, and has developed by converting to explosion protection for plants after the decline of coal industry. We have developed, in recent years, explosion protected products for IT equipment and communication devices, and an explosion protected personal computer system including peripherals such as keyboards and mouse, in addition to explosion protected barcode scanners, explosion protected handy terminals, and explosion protected cameras. We built a cooperative relationship with FEAM which is an explosion protected equipment manufacturer in Italy, as the first step of overseas deployment. In addition, our in-house project team adheres to certification of explosion protection standard proprietary for each country. 

Explosion protected electrical equipment manufacturing and sales 

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our company has designed, produced and sold explosion protected electric equipment for over 70 years since its establishment. Explosion protected electric equipment is an electric product to be used in an environment in which explosive gas or oil is mixed with outside air and it volatile. Target applications include thermal power plants, petrochemical/purification plants, oil/gas storage bases, LP gas filling stations, tunnel excavation construction sites. Technology for protecting explosion includes “pressure-resistant explosion-proof structure” in which explosion energy is enclosed in a container even when explosion occurred by chance, and “intrinsically safe explosion-proof structure” in which the change of explosion is essentially nullified. In any case, those explosion protection technologies are robust technologies cultivated through 70 years of experiment and practice, and are also our company’s strength.

[Representative's message]
Our company was established in November 1946, and we celebrated its 70th anniversary. We have earnestly worked on explosion protection since our company’s establishment through to today. We contribute to safety of human lives by transiting from coal explosion protection to explosion protection of oil/gas plants. Domestic demand in our country, Japan, has shrunk in accordance with declining population, but the number of large-scale oil/gas-related facilities is increasing in Southeast Asia. Each country in the world recently has a certification system for explosion protection standard, so we are required to acquire overseas explosion protection standard such as IECEx and ATEX for exportation. We will aim to be a “top company in a global niche” in explosion protection starting from our 70th anniversary.
