Optorun Co., Ltd.

We have a leading share of the market for optical thin film coaters.

We manufacture, sell, export, and import vacuum film coaters, peripheral equipment, and units using vacuum film coated products; sell and maintain products; and also provide technical consulting services. Our business concept is to provide process solutions for optical film coating by opto-nanotechnology. We combine (1) the vacuum thin film manufacturing technologies that we have been improving through the development and sale of ion beam assisted deposition and sputtering devices, (2) basic theories such as thin film formation process engineering, thin film structures, and material engineering, and (3) experimental results. In addition, we integrate the results with film forming process technologies we have accumulated in order to produce high-quality optical thin film filters.

[Strength of products/technologies]
We combine (1) the vacuum thin film manufacturing technologies that we have been improving through the development and sale of ion beam assisted deposition and sputtering devices, (2) basic theories such as thin film formation process engineering, thin film structures, and material engineering, and (3) experimental results. In addition, we integrate the results with film forming process technologies we have accumulated in order to produce high-quality optical thin film filters. We also offer an extensive range of key components including ion sources and optical film thickness monitors in order to meet the diverse demands of our customers.



[Representative's message]
Our motto is “to contribute to the development of digital optics”. We meet the diverse demands of our customers by manufacturing and selling a great variety of optical film coaters. We actively develop new products for forming optical films. Due to the popularization of smart devices, smartphones, and other electronic products, the application of optical thin film technology has become critical for a great number of companies. The market for optical parts is not only expanding quantitatively but also rapidly generating new demand. We will focus on capturing new key customers in the US and East Asia while retaining our existing good customers in East Asia, the US west coast, and Japan.



[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We have reorganized our sales system into four groups and started global sales in order to increase market channels not only in Japan, China, Taiwan, and the US, but also in other countries including southeast Asia. We are also improving our development and mass production systems to fulfill the needs of customers by establishing offices and plants in China, Taiwan, and the US.

[Market share/Ranking]
In the last decade, we have acquired a leading share of the market for optical thin film coaters. In 2012, we gained the top rank by number of units sold and have kept this position for four consecutive years (see “2016 Imaging- & Sensing-related Markets - Comprehensive Study” issued by Fuji Chimera Research Institute).
