[Industry]
Machine manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our core technology is laser light sources and their application, which we have accumulated over 30 years at RIKEN. We cover a wide range of engineering that other laser makers cannot. Thanks to 10 years of experience in fiber laser technology, we provide special deep-UV light sources which are unique in the world by using the rare characteristic of unique nonlinear optical crystals.

[Representative's message]
Lasers are a crucial technology for medicine, semiconductors, automobiles and basic science. Since our foundation in 1996 as a laser manufacturer, we have introduced a succession of optical technologies and state-of-the-art laser products. We are committed to providing solutions through R&D to meet various social needs and contribute to next-generation industries. In addition to providing high quality and performance trusted by all customers, our mission is to create products that bring pleasure and excitement. We keep exploring new opportunities in the optical industry with a global and practical vision.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We have added more personnel in the Sales Department for the domestic market, while engineers from the R&D Department visit customers to discuss technical matters. We aim to expand our market through agents, and also seek to explore international markets especially in China where market needs have been growing.
