Technological know-how for the Electronics industry

An affiliate of Total for more than 20 years, Atotech Japan has a recognized expertise in circuit boards manufacturing. Its Electronics business unit supplies many industries (automotive, aerospace, telecommunications, medical…), with a full package of chemistry, production technology and comprehensive services.

Improvement emerges through a multitude of techniques and extensive Research and Development but not only, as technology quickly evolves. This is particularly the case in Electronics.

Since 2012, our Japanese engineers are promoting a prospective approach by accelerating joint developments. By working in direct contact with Electronics’ OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers), the Atotech team is able to immediately adapt to their requests but also to anticipate their future demands.

Innovation through dialogue and anticipation

Technology remains central, but human connections have a unique power to boost innovation. Atotech Japan continually develops more effective and innovative components by privileging direct and personal contacts within the companies it supplies.

In the case of the Smartphone industry, the company brings its engineering skills at the service of its customers, which include most of the big electronic companies:

The challenge for us is always to reply to those evolving specifications. Through our constant exchanges and mutual feedbacks between customers and suppliers, we can also anticipate their demands” confirms Shozo Nishida, Managing Director of Atotech Japan.

Pushing towards thinner and more efficient products

Trend is led by miniaturization” he adds.

Indeed, while smartphones are getting larger and wider screens, they are also getting thinner. To cope with the demand of the market, Atotech Japan works on how to constantly reduce the size of the circuit boards, while improving performance and efficiency of the customers’ final products.

And most people do not realize they hold every day a piece of Total’s technology in their hands. Indeed, one of Atotech Japan’s main developments is multi-layers motherboard, the equivalent of several circuit boards on top of each other.

By multiplying the efficiency of the mortherboard, our engineers enable manufacturers to expand furthermore the capabilities of the Smartphones: a smaller and thinner device more powerful and easier to carry for the final user.
