Half a century as your partner in aspherical plastic lenses.
Using reliable technology to contribute to the launching of prototype development

Incorporating New Development Technology

“Ultra high-precision” milling using high-performance machines Lens arrays, prism arrays and their corresponding molds
An array of microlenses is used in integral imaging applications for internal finders. This requires a burr-free micro configuration with sharp edge grooves that are closely packed. We have established technology that processes complex, free-form surfaces and arrays for lenses, and their corresponding molds with high precision, by the use of programs that integrate machine measurement and error correction, as well as a simultaneous 5-axis control function for processing complex shapes.
*Lens array is a structure formed together by a large number of micrometer-size microlenses. It is useful for light condensing and enlarging, and for controlling adjacent lighting

Reliable quality management system

In China, 日出塑膠廠 (HINODE Co., Ltd. ) has established a clean room and obtained ISO9001 certification.
We promise to deliver the highest quality products by unifying our employees and striving as a company for improvement of quality.

Obtainment of Eco Action 21 certification

In December of 2007, HINODE obtained Eco Action 21 certification (recognized by the Ministry of the Environment) at our headquarters factory. This is in addition to the ISO14001 certification already obtained at our base in China.
We continue to develop measures for compliance to environmental laws and regulations, conservation of energy and resources, and total elimination of restricted environmental substances.
