Quality assurance

The quality of plating technologies we have newly created in the nano- and micro-worlds is proven and guaranteed by experienced staff who make full use of advanced inspection equipment and evaluation devices. Here, we introduce our "analyzation/observation equipment," "solution analyzers," "evaluation devices," and other equipment.
