In the near future, Nitto is planning to strategically invest its management resources into the three key areas of "Power & Mobility," "Digital Interface," and "human life." Within these key areas, we believe that by combining the core technologies developed by Nitto through collaboration with external partners will allow us to confront the challenges of creating the new ideas required for innovation that will lead to making healthier and more comfortable lives for people all over the world a reality.
In order to help make an ultra-smart society a reality, Nitto has developed innovative Plastic Optical Fibers (POF) capable of high-quality data communication. With the introduction of 5G worldwide, we can thus contribute to the implementation of all different fields such as telemedicine, autonomous driving, and virtual reality (VR) within next-generation communication networks that require higher speeds and wider bandwidth.
Nitto's research and development aims to protect and improve the global environment while raising the quality of life for people through technological development. To accomplish this, we are constantly striving to increase the value of technology through our core technologies of adhesives, optical design, porous separation, surface control, and deepening thin film formation, as well as actively introducing new technology from external partners.
In our POF business, which began in 2017 through collaboration with external partners, we were successful in developing our own plastic optical fibers using extrusion molding technology that Nitto developed using optical films. In addition, integrating Nitto’s polymer waveguide and circuit board technology to allow for the creation of original photoelectric conversion modules used in AOCs.
With its focus on product development in order to realize a sustainable environment and society, starting with the recycling of plastic materials, Nitto will continue to use technology to build the future, a future full of excitement and surprises.
