Phonic Co., Ltd.

We are a manufacturer dedicated to cardboard manufacturing lines.

We develop inspection device systems in our unique specialty area. This is done by applying the industrial electric control systems that we have accumulated since our foundation, and also by combining image processors and sensors. Our company does everything from developing inline quality inspection devices for cardboard manufacturing processes to device sales and installation. We have confidence in our development and design power. Our unique inspection device systems are combined from image processors and sensors, which have inspection resolutions of 0.1 mm and can display inspection results in units of 1 mm. We have a history of  many transactions with major cardboard manufacturers such as Rengo, Oji Holdings, and Tomoku. We have also done business with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Printing & Packaging Machinery, ISOWA, Ishikawa Seisakusho, and other manufacturers of cardboard manufacturing machines.

[Company strength]
We began to accumulate technologies regarding industrial electric control systems when we started our corporate history as a subcontractor. We are applying these technologies to develop inspection device systems in our unique specialty area. These systems combine image processors and sensors. We are a unique company as a dedicated manufacturer of inspection devices dedicated to niche cardboard manufacturing lines in Japan. Cardboard manufacturing lines vary greatly among our customers. Our advantage is the ability to fit an inspection device system to an individual manufacturing line. We have acquired 13 patents as an in-house development manufacturer. We receive new inspection inquiries from customers every day and provide solutions to solve their problems.

[Business description]
We conduct in-house development and manufacturing of quality inspection systems for cardboard manufacturing lines, and sell and install them at customer sites. Our company has an integrated system from developing inline quality inspection devices for cardboard manufacturing processes to device sales and installation. We propose systems that differ depending on the cardboard product. They are suitable for different product materials and colors, as well as high-mix low-volume or high-speed production. We develop systems that match the inspection environments and quality requirements of end users rather than general-purpose inspection equipment.

Cardboard manufacturing inspection device development and sales

[Strength of products/technologies]
We have the power to develop and design unique inspection device systems by combining image processors and sensors. There is a growing demand for high-quality cardboard products among users of products made by our customer companies. Our inspection device systems have inspection resolutions of 0.1 mm and can display inspection results in units of 1 mm to meet these demands for quality.

[Representative's message]
We are thinking of extending our market from Vietnam, where many Japanese cardboard manufacturers have local sites, to Thailand and other Southeast Asian countries. Quality is a common subject around the world that we confront as economies develop. We think Southeast Asia will be the first to follow Japan. We are considering an operation system in which the head office in Japan creates the vital parts and local company staff do the rest according to their local business practices. We will try to meet an even wider range of domestic Japanese needs by feeding technologies developed overseas back to Japan.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our company has established an overseas strategy office. We are conducting on-site inspections in North America as well as Vietnam and other Asian countries, and promoting marketing to overseas cardboard factories. We ask our customer to arrange a local electrical contractor on delivery of an inspection device system. We create work instructions and dispatch an engineer as a supervisor for the installation work. We witness the initiation of service and adjust the system. Our company has Chinese, Vietnamese, and Korean engineers for future overseas expansion. We are ready to attend to customers in English, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Korean.

[Market share/Ranking]
We are in the top rank in the industry. Our flute forming fault inspection device is introduced on the website of The Japan Corrugated Case Association a component of production equipment rather than as an inspection device.
