Hamamatsu Photonics has been constructing a new Building No. 5 that replaces the aging and cramped Building No. 5 at the Toyooka Factory site, Shimokanzo, Iwata City, Japan, and now completed the new building. There, operations start in September this year to boost the R&D activities and customer service in the electron tube market. The completion ceremony took place last week.

The company has been selling advanced electron tube products including photomultiplier tubes and light sources for a wide variety of fields such as medical diagnosis, analytical, industrial and scientific measurements, and academic research. It expects a further increase in sales of electron tube products with the emphasis on light and X-ray sources for industrial application fields.

In the new building, along with consolidating our design & development departments, which are currently dispersed in different locations at the Toyooka factory site, Hamamatsu Photonics expands its laboratory space to support development of new products for industrial applications such as microfocus X-ray sources used for X-ray non-destructive inspection of electronic components and circuit boards, and supercontinuum light sources used for measurement of semiconductor microstructures. This shall also help to promote development of elemental or underlying technologies essential for electron tube products.

Moreover, the reception space at the new building will be about 1.5 times that of the current Building No. 5 used as office building, allowing to respond to increasing numbers of customers, guests and visitors from both Japan and abroad. At the same time, the company consolidates its sales and quality control departments to reduce response times for customer inquiries.

The management prepares a system capable of responding to future sales increases by expanding production space for X-ray sources, photomultiplier tubes for in-vitro diagnostics and their related products as well as shipment space for electron tube products since free space will become available in existing buildings after clustering departments together in the new building.
