Hamamatsu Photonics Announces Completion of Shingai Factory Site
Sep 08 2020
Hamamatsu Photonics has been constructing a new factory building at the Shingai Factory (Shingai-cho, Minami-ku, Hamamatsu City, Japan) to cope with increasing sales demand for opto-semiconductors, X-ray image sensors and X-ray flat panel sensors. This new factory will start operations in October this year. The completion ceremony for the new factory building took place on 7 August.
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. The company expects a further increase in sales of these products over a diverse spectrum of fields.
To ensure business continuity against natural disasters, earthquake and flood control measures have been incorporated into the building structure of the new factory. At the same time, the new factory building is designed to actively incorporate eco-friendly measures such as LED lighting, heat-insulated walls, solar power plant, and rainwater reuse systems.
