Initiatives for environmental activities

Reduction of waste emissions

In order to promote recycling, waste is properly separated and the company-wide recycling rate is maintained at over 80%. We are also working on introducing new equipment and making process improvements in order to reduce the loss from defects that occur during the manufacturing process.

Reduced man-hours by introducing automatic machinery developed in-house

By introducing a dedicated machinery developed in-house, work processes are consolidated, and work automation is realized.
Lowering the energy consumption during the entire process led to the realization of environmentally friendly production.

Promoting paperless by introducing mobile tablets

We are striving to towards a paperless work environment through digitalization of data through the introduction of mobile tablets. We expect to reduce waste and improve business operations by reducing the number of documents and halving the document volume by going paperless.

Compliance with the RoHS Directive / Green Procurement

In order to comply with the RoHS Directive and green procurement, we examine restrictions and banned substances of materials and parts for each business segment and promote substitutions accordingly. For example, precision positioning stages are being adapted by replacing brass components with low-cadmium materials. We are planning to sell compliant products one after another, along with special order products. In addition, in terms of our corporate activities, we recognize that global environmental preservation is of the utmost importance for earth and will act with sincerity to protect and improve the global environment.
