CKD advanced automation technologies will
promote innovations in manufacturing process.
CKD has, and continues to, develop advanced production line technologies designed to promote quality of life.
These leading technologies and numerous products meet different needs of
customers to save energy, labor, and reduce costs.
Our activities are constantly expanding across the growing
world wide business network.
With creative knowledge and technology,
We shall innovate fluid
control and automation,
Thus contribute to build rich society.
1. Recognition of Corporate Social Responsibility.
2. Care for Global Environment.
3. Thorough Customer Orientation.
4. Challenge to Technology Innovation.
5. Corporate Culture with Faith in Human Resource.
Our first class technology meets customer demands in a wide
range of industries
Our first class manufacturing lines include "Back-Light Manufacturing System" which command
the number one market share in the world, along with "Automatic Packaging System for Medicine"
which enjoy the number one market share in Japan.
CKD contributes to increased productivity in advanced technology, and high-quality output.
This high speed production system produces CCFL back-lights; light sources for large LCDs. This system for manufacturing light bulbs, fluorescent lights, and halogen lamps is key automated equipment boasting the world's top market share.
The soldering stats of PLCs used in digital equipment such as cell phones and laptop computers is checked using our original 3-dimensional color imaging.
Automatic packaging system for medicine
PTP packaging of the FBP series packages individual tablets in a press-through pack (PTP). While attaining high performance of up to 6.000 tables per minute, this greatly reduces the amount of film used and power and air consumed. This reduces environmental load.

Providing the best satisfaction with CKD products
CKD's high-performance products have been developed from automated machine technologies.
We are providing the appropriate system, including high-purity chemical gas/
liquid control system, fluid control system, labor saving components best suited to the customer's needs.
High-purity chemical gas/liquid control system
Advanced industries such as semiconductors and LCDs require controllers for extra-clean environ-ments. We are constantly working to provide our customers with the ultimate in high purity and high precision in all semiconductor areas from supply to exhaust through ultra-high-level process control. Our devices include chemical controllers, process gas controllers, and high vacuum controllers.
Fluid control components
Developing components and equipment for controlling and effectively using fluids such as water, air, gas, steam, and oil is an important pillar of CKD's technology. This work involves developing a constantly growing variety of valves and system and environmental devices such as sprinklers, dust collectors, gas combustion systems, cleaning equipment, and waste treatment systems. High quality and wide variation are the basis for our fluid con-trol components.
Labor saving components
Our implementation of development and manufacturing automation over the years has focused on high precision, high speed, and low costs. We have implemented our original perspectives and technology in creating products meeting user needs. Our index units, direct-drive actua-tors, and pick_and-place units are available in a broad va-riety to satisfy the controllability, output performance, rigid-ity, speed, and smoothness our customers require.
A variety of products is available to respond to diverse needs such as fluid control, clean compliance, environmental measures, and energy conservation. CKD applies its extensive results and know-how to the development and manufacturing of clean air sys-tems and pneumatic auxiliary components such as FRL units and air dryers, expanding our lineup of system peripherals. This line-up includes electropneumatic regulators that control aair flows, pneumatic control components such as open-network-compatible valves, and drive components such as pneumatic cylinders and electric sliders that enable systems to be easily automated at low cost. As pioneers in pneumatic technology, we are continuously developing products that accurately embrace market needs.
