Noa Co., Ltd.

We provide solutions applying 3D scanner data.

Our main businesses are custom optical equipment manufacturing and application development in many fields, including office processing applications, image processing tools, and product inspection tools for Windows. We also develop mechanical control firmware for machinery and communications control systems. We recently developed one-shot-capable 3D scanner devices together with solutions using 3D scanner data. We have also introduced optical technology and electronic circuit design technology. Our strength is our ability to support clients with comprehensive hardware and software solutions.

[Company strength]
We can provide finely tailored, one-stop support to meet client needs, from planning to volume production. We have accumulated a wealth of experience and technology through our long involvement in developing mechanical and communications control programs for Riso Kagaku Corporation. We have developed expertise in constructing diverse, custom-made control systems based on this experience and technology. We have also introduced optical technology and electronic circuit design technology. Our strength is our ability to support clients with comprehensive hardware and software solutions.

[Industry]
Software development

[Strength of products/technologies]
In the mechanical and communications control field we have been in charge of developing mechanical controls and panel operations for Riso Kagaku Corporation’s series of screen printing machines since 1988. The company has shipped dozens of screen printer models during this time. In the Windows application field we have developed image processing tools and many other applications using VB, VC++, and other languages. In the optical equipment field we manufacture optical equipment for specific applications, from portable devices to complex, breadboarded optical systems. We are currently expanding sales of our 3D scanner devices, which make use of image processing technology developed under the Strategic Core Technology Advancement Program. We are also developing solutions applying data captured with 3D scanners.

[Representative's message]
It has been our representative director’s dream ever since the company was founded in 1993 to release a product under the company’s name that is useful to the world. We started to develop 3D scanning technology in 2010 to realize this dream. In 2014 we successfully commercialized our first product: the Hapimo:3D, which is a conveniently sized 3D data capture device. 3D printers have gained a lot of attention in recent years as a 3D data application, but even larger business opportunities for 3D data remain untapped. We hope many people will make use of Hapimo:3D to seize new business opportunities.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Company representatives handle sales development and new customers. We have a QCD perspective, and our representatives can explain the technical advantages of our products and demonstrate how they can fit your usage scenarios. The sales staff work in tandem with our developers, so our representatives can thoroughly address all your questions and requirements. Our proposals always stress usability even when developing new markets. We are also open to offers for expansion into overseas markets.
