Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment
We manufacture and sell semiconductor molding machines. these machines are for the protection of integrated circuits embedded in semiconductors (silicon) through use of special resin molding under the I-PEX brand (formerly the Dai-ichi Seiko brand) .
In 1980, the world's first fully automatic semiconductor molding equipment was launched and delivered to semiconductor manufacturers worldwide. Since then, we have received support from many manufacturers as a result of our creation and improvement activities with customers.
Strengths and features
Manufacturing equipment made by a company that is knowledgeable in mass production
Our company is not a specialized manufacturer of semiconductor manufacturing equipment—rather, we mass produce components such as connectors and automotive parts, in addition to manufacturing the production equipment for said components.
We are a company that can empathize with customers concerning the problems they face in their daily production and can maintain long-term relationships with our loyal customers owing to our knowledge in mass production.
Broad customer base and support for customization
By making full use of our molds and automatic machine technology to comply with product characteristics and customer requirements, we can provide optimal recommendations that have been customized to individual customers, based on our extensive track-record.
This provided support for customization is the reason why we are evaluated highly by a wide range of customers for products including automotive semiconductors, consumer semiconductors, power modules, passive components, ECUs, and sensors.
Track record as a long-term supplier, and offering reliable customer support for the global network base
For more than 40 years, we have supplied the world with automatic molding equipment that is produced in Japan and boasts a high level of excellence. The local support system in Asian countries is also well-equipped, giving peace of mind to customers who use our products.
List of products
Semiconductor molding machines
GP-PRO SP Series
An automatic molding system suitable for mass production.
The company has implemented thorough dust protection to enhance reliability and meets a wide range of needs for high quality, from consumer ICs to automotive ICs and passive components.
GP-PRO sf Series
A compact, full-automatic molding system dedicated to high-mix low-volume production.
The sf40 (one-strip type), and two sf120 models (two-strip type) are available.
GP-PRO sa Series
Automatically transfers the lead frame and resin to the mold which are then automatically processed.
After molding, the product is removed manually in a two-strip semi-automatic molding system.
GP-PRO LAB Series
A manual molding system that offers a wide range of options from development to specialized applications.
A molding machine for device development, which uses a compact mold. It is tabletop-ready, easy-to-handle, and has a small form-factor. Prototype molding can be made in a short period of time and at a low price, making it a flexible device for developing new packages.
Precision molds for semiconductor packaging. Our unique Clamp Control Floating Chase (CCFC) and other mechanisms are available to handle all packages.
Semiconductor related equipment
TS-PRO is a machine that is a global standard for applying Quad Flat No leaded package (QFN) back tape.
By applying back tape after wire bonding, the problems that occur relating to tape are solved, and it contributes to substantial cost reductions.
A machine that automatically strips QFN back tape. Compatible with both slit and stack magazines. The machine automatically strips off tape that has been securely applied.
