IDEC builds automated LED production facility

11 Oct 2011 — IDEC Corporation has announced that it will transform its former Hamamatsu Distribution Center in Shizuoka, Japan into an LED plant. Slated to begin operation in April 2012, the new plant will boast an automated production line and will act as the company’s main LED production facility.

The new facility consolidates LED module production now performed at IDEC’s Fukuzaki plant with lighting assembly operations now performed at its Kyoto plant, and features an integrated production system that combines an automated module production line with an automated assembly line using a robotic production cell control system. The advanced production systems of the new facility will enable IDEC better LED Module and LED lighting production capabilities while lowering production costs, thereby making the company more competitive in the LED market.
