Manufacturing Quality

Amano products are mainly manufactured at the Sagamihara factory and Hosoe factory. Both factories strive to perfect their Q (quality), C (cost), D (delivery) to ensure high competitiveness on an international level and also are constantly working to improve parts procurement, production management, manufacturing, and distribution.

Committed to Quality

Electrostatic Testing

In order to prevent malfunction due to static electricity, products undergo electrostatic discharge immunity testing.

Visual inspection device

After mounting electronic components on the printed circuit boards, a quality check is performed with an visual inspection device to verify the state of soldering and to ensure there are no floating leads on the IC.

Product inspection process

During the shipping inspection process for finished products, a full product function check is made.

EMC Testing

An anechoic chamber was built at the Headquarters for EMC testing in order to assess the conformity to international standards.

Environmental Testing

To ensure product reliability, tests are done under temperatures of the installation environment.

Environment-conscious products that are RoHS-compliant

TimeP@CK Ⅲ、MX-300 EM-8e Ⅱ、SX-250、TX-300、MJ seriesRoHS compliant products

With the aim of preventing hazardous substances from affecting human health and the environment in the course of recycling and disposing of electrical and electronic devices, the RoHS Directive (enacted in the European Union in July 2006) restricts the use of six substances (including lead and cadmium) as specified hazardous substances. In compliance with this directive, Amano prioritizes eliminating the use of the following six designated substances:

  • Cadmium
  • Mercury
  • Lead
  • Hexavalent chromium
  • Polybrominated biphenyl (PBB)
  • Polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE)

In addition, we have formulated the "RoHS Restriction Management Rules" as one of our environmental in-house guidlines that allow us to confirm the RoHS compliancy of our products and to obtain JGP files.
We are also implementing measures to comply with the Revised RoHS Directive that was enacted in January 2013.

*RoHS Directive:Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment
This directive was implemented in the European Union (EU) on July 1, 2006, with the aim of restricting the use of specified hazardous substances—including lead, hexavalent chromium, mercury, cadmium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB), and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE)—in electrical and electronic products.
