R&D System

The Research & Development Center, which is our central facility for R&D, is responsible for a series of operations related to research on core technologies and development of new products that lead to new businesses. Within the Center, the R&D Planning Dept., the Basic Research Laboratory, the Intellectual Property Dept., the Evaluation Test Group, the Product Development Dept., and the Chemical Products Dept. work to speed up the development cycle by conducting integrated R&D from problem setting through marketing to mass production, which leads to commercialization.
The Center collaborates with both the Production Technology Center, which works on production innovation processes and design development for equipment, including the use of IoT and AI, and with the Design & Technology departments of each business division to ensure the early commercialization of products and services.
