"Vanguard" represents our company’s vision of becoming a vanguard of new challenges and new technologies. We are working to solve various problems of our customers and continue to take on new challenges.

Since we were established in 1986, we developed desktop taping machines. We also started a 1-day taping service and have received many orders.

Our core technology, the motor technology that controls the stepping motors like servo motors, are all born from our challenges to solve the customer's requests and problems. This technology contributes to various fields such as medical equipment, production equipment, industrial equipment, food equipment, semiconductor equipment, measurement analyzers, robots, etc.

We believe that our unique technology will create big value of "weak force control", "environmental performance", "power saving", "network technology", "robot technology" and "AI technology" that the world will need in the future.

In the world today, where various environmental changes occur, we will continue to do our best to contribute to the development of the world with new challenges.
