Nippon Chemi-Con's Strength

Electrode Foil

Material Development Is Our Strong Point

With the advancement of electronic devices, electronic components have been required to provide higher performance. The key factor for the development of electronic devices with higher performance is material development.
Nippon Chemi-Con has put great effort into research and development of capacitor materials since its establishment. Particularly in the development of aluminum electrode foil, the defining element of the performance of aluminum electrolytic capacitors, we possess the world's most advanced technology.

The amount of electricity stored in an aluminum electrolytic capacitor is proportional to surface area of electrode foil. If we increase the amount of electrode foil in order to create more surface area, finished products will be getting larger and larger and will not be able to be mounted on downsizing electronic devices.
We therefore use technology called "etching" to apply countless micro-holes on the surface. This method expands the surface of the electrode foil approximately 200 times, realizing a small but high performance aluminum electrolytic capacitor that stores a lot of electricity. This material technology is what Nippon Chemi-Con's core technology is all about.
Nippon Chemi-Con also leads the world in production volume, and our aluminum electrode foil is sold to our competitors.

Strength to Produce New Products

As explained earlier, Nippon Chemi-Con carries out product development based on advanced material development. Central to this material development is Basic Research Center. We work on advanced material research with an eye to five years or even ten years ahead. Product R&D Departments undertake products development. They develop new products using advanced materials developed in Basic Research Center. Product R&D Departments give feed back on development process to Basic Research Center for higher precision development. Collaboration between Basic Research Center and Product R&D Departments creates high-value added, leading-edge products. In addition, production technology is required to mass-produce materials and products developed. Nippon Chemi-Con's production technology is introduced in the next section.

Self-Developed Production Facilities

Nippon Chemi-Con's dedication to product creation extends to the development of production facilities. From production facilities for materials to assembling machines for capacitors, a lot of important production facilities are self-developed.
By developing and implementing our original facilities that reflect opinions of production sites, we have achieved high level of both quality and productivity.
Nippon Chemi-Con is dedicated to developing production facilities for our uncompromising product creation under ideal condition.
