Miyagi Oki Electric incurred earthquake damage twice in 2003. Therefore, in order to offer "peace of mind" to all relevant persons, securing the safety of our employees and providing a stable supply to our customers, we made a commitment to make our plant "the most robust semiconductor manufacturing plant in the world". To this end we developed and implemented a practical earthquake disaster prevention system in collaboration with REIC (Real-time Earthquake Information Consortium).

This paper describes a noise reduction technology that utilizes mechatronics control with an emphasis on two issues, printing noise emitted by SIDM printers and spacing operation noise.
Ozone is a strong oxidant, yet it is a substance with a low load that does not cause any secondary pollution. Due to its strong oxidative property the substance has been used widely in a variety of industries in recent years. We aim to utilize the numerous effects and benefits of ozone in businesses.
