In order to provide customers with products that reflect consideration of their life cycles, such as long those with usable lives and minimization of energy consumption, we have positioned certain products as “eco-friendly products” if they satisfy certain standards we have adopted; we use this description when developing and marketing such products. With social and economic matters such as rising energy costs in the background, we use quantitative measurement to determine to what extent products reduce energy requirements or materials used. With our “eco-friendly products,” we aim to achieve a 25% reduction compared to conventional models.
Magnetopneumatic Oxygen Analyzer is a general-purpose analyzer that measures the oxygen concentration in various types of process gases and combustion exhaust gas. For example, it is used at a steel plant to measure the concentration of oxygen contained in gases generated during the iron manufacturing process in order to efficiently manufacture high-quality steel.
During development, the entire user interface was updated to enhance usability. Focusing on product downsizing, we dramatically reduced the product weight and footprint to achieve an eco-friendly design.
The Capacitance Manometer VG Series features capacitance vacuum gauges. These products are used in various industrial applications, including vacuum measurement of semiconductor manufacturing equipment. For example, besides equipment such as solar cell/display monitor manufacturing equipment that uses semiconductor processes, they are also used in food and medical equipment to freeze-dry or to sterilize items. The VG-221 achieves accurate vacuum measurement inside equipment to improve product quality and productivity. From an environmentally friendly design perspective, we revised the sensor structure to increase product stability, and we reduced the number of maintenance man-hours compared to the previous model to improve customer satisfaction.
The FS-09F is employed to control the concentration of the slurry used for the chemical mechanical polishing (CMP) in semiconductor manufacturing process.
Smaller cell volume and flat inner wall of the sensor provide us faster response than previous sensor owing to the quick displacement of the sample solution. These improvements help shorten the time required for the CMP process.
Also, the smaller protrusion reduces the stagnation of the solution. It is a structural merit for measuring slurry that contains abrasive grains.
In terms of environmentally friendly design, the mass and the volume of the product are reduced. The small sensor can be installed easily in the facilities reducing foot print.
