CMIWS Co., Ltd.

We are expanding the range of sensing by making use of optical fiber sensor technology.

We think it is our corporate mission to expand the range of sensing into areas where sensing was previously difficult. We provide new solutions by making use of optical fiber sensor technology. We are the exclusive domestic Japanese agent of the US company Micron Optics, which has the world’s top share in this technology. We sell optical measuring instruments and optical fiber sensors (sensors for distortion, temperature, acceleration, and displacement), including application development according to customer needs. We also develop and manufacture our own new sensors, and we are expanding sales of these products in Japan and abroad. These products make use of original packaging technology, and are to be utilized for design verification for ships, automobiles, and so on.

[Company strength]
We can exclusively deal with the products of Micron Optics, which has the world’s top level of performance and sales power in the optical fiber sensing market. We can also receive backup on the technical side according to the importance of the application. We anticipate current and future problems faced by research institutes and enterprises in Japan. We conduct in-house technology and product development in order to meet expected needs. Our original products are offered on the Japanese market, and can be sold on the global market through the Micron Optics company group.

[Industry]
FBG optical fiber sensor manufacturing and measuring equipment sales

[Strength of products/technologies]
A big feature of optical fiber sensors is that a power supply to the sensor portion is unnecessary. This means that the sensor is not subject to the influence of electromagnetic noise, which was particularly troublesome in the past. Short-circuits will not occur, so the sensor is lightning-resistant and explosion-proof. It is also possible to achieve multi-point, wide-range, and high-speed measurement (on the order of milliseconds). This is done by making use of FBG technology, as represented by optical fiber sensors, and WDM technology, as represented by optical communications. It also becomes easy to install serial wiring and branch wiring for the sensors. It is our corporate mission to enable the measurement of parts for which sensing was previously difficult, which is our strength in products and technology.

[Representative's message]
We think that aggressive overseas expansion is necessary in addition to the domestic Japanese market in order to propose new technology and new products. Technology without a track record tends to be constrained in the domestic Japanese market. This is why it might be a short cut in the long run to build up a track record overseas and then import the product back to Japan to develop the domestic market. Our company is fortunate to belong to the Micron Optics group, and we hope to effectively cultivate overseas markets by making the most of the group’s sales power.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We will provide quick support for inquiries and requests for consultation from new customers by sharing information smoothly in the company. We will visit the customer if necessary to understand issues, and to propose what support we can provide to solve them. Our strategy regarding responses to inquiries from overseas customers and the overseas expansion of our original products is basically to provide support in cooperation with Micron Optics in the USA. We are now steadily improving our in-house export control system.

[Market share/Ranking]
We have the top share in this category.
