Using the high precision stage control, non-contact 3D measurement, optical and image processing technologies Nikon has developed over many years, we provide solutions that will change the future of manufacturing.
Using our proprietary laser metal deposition (LMD) type metal 3D printer equipped with a 5-axis modeling system, we provide a range of solutions including additive manufacturing on existing products, repair, bonding and marking.
Precision subtractive processing
We have released a new optical subtractive processing machine equipped with our proprietary coordinate control system and non-contact optical processing and measurement technologies. This machine will radically change the range of design performed at manufacturing sites and propose new value creation.
Adding a fine structure called a riblet structure to various products utilizing our proprietary laser processing technology helps to reduce energy losses, contributing to improved fuel consumption and reduced CO2 emissions.
With our robot vision that utilizes Nikon's advantageous edge in optical, image processing and control technologies, we meet needs for automation and labor saving etc. in a range of industries, such as for picking of ultra-small parts and automation of assembly.
