||Our high-density compressed sealing glass
has been improved
In most cases, bubbles are present in beads sintered from powder glass. Bubbles are known to have a deleterious effect on insulation, which is the fundamental reason for using the beads. We have sintered the glass beads for matching seals in high density conditions, and these have been given a high rating by customers. However, with the recent trend toward seeking high-quality products at reduced cost, we have received more and more requests from customers to produce "compressed sealing glass without bubbles".
After years of trial and error, by re-examining the product from the initial process (the treatment of powdered glass), we have succeeded in producing a form of high-density compressed sealing glass.

Both photos show the difference between the two types of glass bead: the glass bead on the left is the traditional product, and the one on the right is the up-to-date high-density compressed glass bead, which is transparent and nearly bubble-free.
Reduction of power consumption during hours of peak demand through the medium of solar-power generation
We have engaged in certain environmental measures, such as obtaining ISO14001 in response to the recent environmental problems. We are taking additional measures to cut electric power consumption, in consideration of the problem of electric power shortages during times when nuclear power plants are out of operation. With society facing such a situation, we have deployed solar-power generation using in-house solar panels as well as a system to monitor electric power consumption. These new systems have enabled us to reduce the amount of our power consumption during peak hours by more than 5%.
A link to the study of neutrinos
The above rings, a translucent ring and a white ring, are two of our products. Matched seals are used to maintain a vacuum inside the photomultipliers. (See our product information.)
