We started our business with a focus on precision machining technology applied to high-strength metallic materials used in aerospace products. With the aim of becoming a company that solves social issues and serves society, we have grown while pursuing and developing precision technology and precision manufacturing in the Aerospace, Industrial Equipment, and ICT businesses.
The ICT Business develops and manufactures MEMS and semiconductor manufacturing equipment. The Sumitomo Precision Products group is a leading company in deep silicon etching equipment, which is indispensable for MEMS production. By utilizing the MEMS manufacturing equipment, we develop high-precision sensors and other MEMS device/Sensors.
In fiscal 2021, among our MEMS device and sensors, we succeeded in developing Northfinder and begun to market it. This product is a gyrocompass that enables drilling with restrained energy consumption, targeting precious metals and rare metals that are essential for the popularization of EVs as we move toward realizing the carbon free society.
In fiscal 2023, we will improve this product and market it in the high temperature Oil and Gas industry. The wireline tools which accomodates the Northfinder enables drilling service more conventional. The Bottom Hole Assembly which accomodates the Northfinder enables drilling service more efficient.
