YOUTECH Co., Ltd.

We have a track record with major companies in Japan and abroad for ultra-thin film deposition devices and other products.

We are a vacuum device manufacturer developing its business in Japan and abroad. We manufacture and sell chemical vapor deposition devices, sputtering devices, and etching devices. Our company has a track record with diamond-like carbon (DLC) chemical vapor deposition (CVD) devices. These are used to deposit DLC and other thin films on the surfaces of hard disk heads and hard disk recording media, and also inside PET bottles. We have many customers among major domestic Japanese companies, including Showa Denko, Sony, Toshiba, Hitachi, Canon, and Konica-Minolta Holdings. We have exported our products to SAE and Western Digital outside Japan. We have conducted joint R&D with Kirin, and also with Keio University, Toyama University, and Yamaguchi Prefectural Industrial Technology Institute.

[Company strength]
Our company was established by seven people who were enthusiastic about plasma and thin films, and about developing vacuum-related devices. Since then our company has been developing as an enterprise. Our objectives are to discover and commercialize original chemical processes that are not available from other companies, and to grow to become a unique development-oriented company. Our achievements include diamond-like carbon (DLC) chemical vapor deposition (CVD) devices. These are used for depositing DLC and other thin films on the surfaces of hard disk heads and hard disk recording media, and also inside PET bottles.

[Business description]
We are a vacuum device manufacturer that develops, designs, manufactures, and sells ultra-thin film deposition devices. We offer a wide range of vacuum devices from CVD devices and sputtering devices to etching devices. We are now earnestly proceeding with the development of new processes and highly creative devices with CVD devices as our main products.

[Industry]
Machine (vacuum device) manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our company developed a plasma gun system for diamond-like carbon (DLC) film deposition. This system has been adopted by world-leading companies for film deposition to protect hard disk media (the round recording media in a hard disk unit). Our goal is to develop devices that generate thinner, harder, and finer thin films for the ultra-thin film deposition technology that supports Japan’s Monozukuri craftsmanship.

[Representative's message]
We propose new technologies and provide permanent support to help our customers develop. Our company name is based on the philosophy that we support and service your technology. We will continue to improve our technology to help our customers achieve unique and number-one technology, and to use our thin films and plasma to encounter worlds that are as yet unknown.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We developed a unique plasma CVD device for diamond-like carbon (DLC) film formation. It has been extensively adopted to deposit protective films on the surfaces of hard disk heads and hard disk recording media. We are updating our website to further expand our sales channels. We are also making use of the sales channel development systems of public organizations, such as registration in Chiba Prefecture’s Monozukuri network and participating in J-GoodTech business matching.
