Power transmission and control equipment

Cyclo® Drive / Hyponic drive®

Power transmission and control equipment raises torque as the rotary speed of a motor is reduced to an optimum level. This kind of equipment has many applications, including elevators, escalators, industrial robots and factory production lines. SHI produces a wide range of power transmission and control devices, from micro-miniature devices with a motor capacity of 6 watts to very large devices of several thousand kilowatts. SHI has the leading share of the Japanese market for this equipment.

Plastic injection molding machines

Full-electric injection molding machine "SE75DUZ"

Plastic injection molding machines are used to pour melted plastic into molds. Of the two system types, hydraulic and electromotive, the latter enables greater molding precision. SHI specializes in the precision, high-cycle molding required for manufacturing optical discs and connectors and has the top share in Japan for these devices.

Cyclotrons

PET radio-tracer production system "HM-12S"

A cyclotron is an accelerator for particles that it ionizes using magnetic force. SHI is the only manufacturer of these devices in Japan and has the top share of the domestic market for cyclotrons for positron emission tomography (PET) applications, which are highly effective in discovering and pinpointing cancer cells.

Ion-implantation devices

Ion-implantation devices "SHX II"

To create the transistors and other components that comprise semiconductors, the necessary type/ volume of elements required for such components must be added to a flat silicon single-crystal substrate known as a wafer. Ion-implantation devices electrically ionize the elements and accelerate the resulting ions at high voltage for high-precision injection into the wafer.

Precision positioning stages

Precision positioning stage SL series "SL-500G"

Precision positioning stages set the vertical and horizontal positioning of substrates, wafers and other components in precision processing. Because two axes are involved, they are also called XY stages. These products are used for manufacturing and inspection processes for liquid crystal panels and semiconductor wafers. SHI's high-precision positioning stages are one of its particular strengths.
