The company is a Japan-based high precision photolithography manufacturer established in 1976. They are specialized in making tools used for the manufacturing of electronic devices. The company digitizes or edits their customers’ circuit designs and is capable of putting very precise patterns onto the substrates by exposing the photoresist to a laser beam. Their customers operate in manufacturing sectors such as: semiconductors, advanced packaging, touch panels, Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS), and optics.
Since their establishment the company has expanded its business into America, China, Taiwan, and South East Asia. They now want to expand their market to include the EU. They have four manufacturing sites operating 24/7 which allows customers to contact them at any time and makes it possible to ship out products very rapidly.
Depending on the customer’s product making process, the Japanese company can offer three types of substrate for exposure:
- Quartz (fused silica) or soda lime substrate with chrome coating
- Soda lime substrate with emulsion
- Film substrate with emulsion
For glass substrates use, the company offers a surface coating technology which improves contact and proximity printing. This coating technology is effective in preventing unwanted photoresist sticking to the substrate during exposure and reduces the need to clean the substrates as often which increase the overall yield rate.
The Japanese company would like to find partners in the EU and engage in either a distribution services or manufacturing agreement. Under a manufacturing agreement the company is looking for partners which make products using photolithography methods, the Japanese company is eager to take on technological challenges and engage in long-term cooperation.
The company is also seeking partners which have experience distributing a variety of products in the electronics industry. The Japanese company hopes the potential partner can support them to distribute their finished products in the form of a distribution services agreement. The Japanese company will provide the potential partner with samples and brochures for promotion purposes.
