Kyocera Corporation Constructing New Smart Factory in Japan

by Imaging Solution Bureau

Kyocera Corporation is constructing a new facility on the premises of its Yasu manufacturing complex in Shiga Prefecture, Japan. The facility will develop and produce Kyocera’s automated production equipment, enabling the company to strengthen its use of robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) in manufacturing.

The recent domestic labor shortage is gradually impeding the growth of the Japanese economy. According to Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, the population of Japanese workers age 15-64 totaled approximately 76 million in 2017 — and is expected to decrease to around 60 million by 2040. To overcome this labor shortage, Kyocera has encouraged its production sites to adopt technologies, including AI and robotics, which can double productivity.
