Makita Kikou Co., Ltd.

We have a track record in the field of automatic machines for solar cell manufacturing lines.

Our company is a labor saving machinery manufacturer, and our business includes both domestic Japanese and international sales. We make processors, assembly machines, inspection equipment, and other automatic machines for various fields, such as the solar cell, electrical, food, and medical industries. We do business with major domestic Japanese manufacturers such as Kaneka, Kyocera, Sharp, Pacific Industrial, and Nichicon, as well as overseas subsidiaries of Japanese companies. We can make the most of our accumulated insight and experience on labor saving machinery to meet any kind of need from design to processing, assembly, and transport. We have handled almost all conceivable manufacturing processes in cell plants in the field of automatic machines for solar cells. This experience helps us meet a wide range of customer needs.

Sales Pitch

Optimum handling through the fusion of stable mechanical mechanisms and advanced technologies
Transport with robots and servo motors has become mainstream in recent years. We can, of course, use these as well, but what is distinctive about us above all is cam. When using various cams, the mechanism moves stably for a long time once it has started. Our company has plenty of years of experience and track records in such mechanical mechanisms since its establishment.
On the other hand, we focus on image processing, such as visual inspection and high-speed, high-precision positioning by assigning dedicated staff, and try to establish an optimal environment using both hardware and software.

Other presentation

[Company strength]
Our strength lies in our technology for processing high-precision, delicate workpieces such as solar cells in a quick and accurate manner. Our reliable handling capabilities are valuable for loaders and unloaders as well as connections between manufacturing processes, and also in various processes (like manufacturing, printing, and inspection). We have responded to conflicting demands for high precision and high speed, and our company has acquired sophisticated techniques and know-how on how to achieve both of these goals. 

[Business description]
Our company manufactures various kinds of automatic machinery such as processors, assembly machines, and inspection equipment. We cover a wide range of fields, including solar cells, and the electric and medical industries. We conduct all processes in-house from design to processing, assembly, and delivery. We can design and manufacture rare and globally unique systems based on customer requests. We can also repair and remodel existing systems. 

Automatic and labor saving system manufacturing 

[Strength of products/technologies]
We realize optimal handling from the fusion of our proven mechanisms and the latest technology. Transport methods with robots or servo motors are currently mainstream. Of course our company has mastered these products, but our specialty is cams. Cams have unique characteristics, in that movement continues stably for a long time once a mechanical operation is put into motion over a series of cams. We have a great deal of experience and extensive results with such cam mechanisms because of the many years we have been active in this field since our establishment. We also focus on image processing, such as visual inspection, as well as high-speed, high-precision positioning. We plan to create an optimal environment by assigning dedicated personnel, and by making use of both hardware and software. 

[Representative's message]
Our company has supplied various automated production machines to meet the demands of the times, for products from 100-yen lighters to medical supplies (reagents, dialysis), capacitors, and solar cells. We were involved in automatic machinery for solar cells from a very early stage, so we were able to have a say in almost all cell manufacturing processes. This was of assistance to many domestic Japanese manufacturers. In recent years we have also focused on our automobile related business, and plan to expand it further. In the future we hope to expand to various industries so that we can make use of our diverse range of experience to support their Monozukuri craftsmanship. 

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our sales representatives provide quick, flexible responses to inquiries from major manufacturers. Depending on the situation a representative can team up with a designer if the question involves more technical knowledge.

[Market share/Ranking]
Reliable data is not available, but we are confident that our company has more than a 50% share of the domestic Japanese solar cell production system market.
