 Hamamatsu Photonics will construct a new factory at its Shingai Factory site located in Shingai-cho, Minami-ku, Hamamatsu City, Japan to increase overall production capacity in the post-processing (dicing, assembly, and inspection) of opto-semiconductor devices. Mainly used for semiconductor manufacturing, testing equipment and LiDAR*-related devices, it will support the expanding sales demands.

 The groundbreaking ceremony for the new factory building is scheduled to be held on March 1, 2023, and the new factory building will be completed in March, 2025.

* LiDAR: “Light Detection And Ranging” is a remote sensing technology that measures the distance to an object by irradiating a laser beam onto it and detecting the reflected light with an optical sensor. LiDAR is the focus of much recent attention in the field of automatic vehicle driving.
