Athene Corporation Co., Ltd.

Applying the nickel electroforming method to medical devices and other products

We have grown our business by focusing on electroforming (nickel electroforming) for more than half a century. We manufacture masks (plates) for printing, vapor deposition and implementation of solder balls for semiconductor wafers or packages, organic solvents for organic EL displays and electrode wiring for touch panels. We also develop and manufacture painting jigs for oversized parts for automobiles and aircraft using the same method. We seek to develop products that contribute to society by taking advantage of the characteristics of nickel for medical devices and biotechnology in addition to electronics and automobile industries.

[Company strength]
We have grown our business by focusing on electroforming (nickel electroforming) for more than half a century. We make highly-precise reverse pattern metal plates by plating the master base material with Ni or Fe and Ni and removing it. Our accuracy ensures micron-order unevenness or openings and mirror-like smoothness. Taking advantage of this accuracy, we develop high-performance jigs by applying the technology to the edges, which require strict accuracy.

[Industry]
Manufacture of electroforming (nickel plating) products

[Representative's message]
We have supplied electroforming products (plating the base material with nickel only or nickel and iron and reversing it to form fine-structure masks for printing or vapor deposition) to electronics companies in the semiconductor industry, which is a leading industry of Japan, and companies in the auto industry. We intend to continue creating products that contribute to society, especially in the medical and biotechnology areas which are applicable to our products, taking advantage of nickel (plating the base material of a clean, rust-resistant, complicated and fine structure, leaving an accurate reversed pattern when the plating is removed).

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Busy with sales and marketing to the end of September, we were unable to answer every inquiry we received as the engineering department was too busy with day-to-day work. The Management Planning Office took over marketing in October. With this new system, they are starting a new project with the R&D Department of the Engineering Division in order to thoroughly survey, examine and verify customers’ inquiries about what we can do.
