Hamamatsu Photonics Completes New Factory


New building at Shingai factory site will help streamline opto-semiconductor device production and increase capacity

Hamamatsu Photonics has announced the completion of a new building at its Shingai Factory, Japan to cope with increasing sales demand for opto-semiconductors, X-ray image sensors and X-ray flat panel sensors. The new factory building will start operations in October this year.

Hamamatsu Photonics has been supplying opto-semiconductor products for a wide range of applications and fields such as medical diagnosis and treatment, industrial instrumentation, automotive, and scientific measurement.

Recently, there has been an increasing demand for plastic-moulded opto-semiconductors mass-producible in large quantities, as well as for X-ray image sensors and X-ray flat panel sensors used in radiation inspection devices.

Construction of this new factory building will help the company not only increase production but also allow it to consolidate opto-semiconductor production processes that are currently located separately from each other at the Shingai Factory and associated companies.

To boost X-ray image sensor and X-ray flat panel sensor production, Hamamatsu says it will speed up product development by consolidating design, development and evaluation into a single area and will also streamline our supply system by way of production processes located on the same floor to respond to growing demand.

The new building incorporates earthquake and flood control measures as well as eco-friendly measures such as LED lighting, heat-insulated walls, solar power plant, and rainwater reuse systems.
