FA customized solutions
Most of the products made by Okano are the customized systems to match
the customer's requirement and production facility. Since we developed
the world's first analog in-circuit tester which is now the standard for
print circuit board test, we have consistently performed development, design,
manufacturing and installation work, and we have cultivated experience
and know-how to meet customer's needs.
We have delivered our systems with our three main technologies, which is
Okano original "Image processing technology", "Handling
technology" based on our know-hou over 50 years of experience, and
"Measurement technology". Okano has abundant experiences, achievements,
and know-how focusing on the customer's requirement. For instance, we have
provided the handling systems with 1μm placement accuracy according to
our customer's needs. In other case, we have created our original visual
inspection algorithm born from various inspection requirements from our
customers. Therefore, it is possible for us to make our proposal that meet
customer needs. We continue to provide customized systems by making full
use of our outstanding technical capabilities and abundant experience.
Our factory automation systems created by the reliable technology is available
in a wide range of industrial fields such as the electronic / electrical
industry, communication industry such as mobile phones, hard disk industry,
medical industry, tool industry, transportation industry such as automobiles,
and food industry. Also, we are able to provide the solution for enhancement
of the customer's facilities with our systems.
