Kyocera to open factory in China

January 10, 2018

KYOCERA Document Solutions Inc. has announced its plans to open a new factory in China, to increase the production of OPC drums.

KYOCERA Document Solutions Inc. has begun expanding its Shilong Plant in China to enhance production capacity of Organic Photo Conductor (OPC) drums used in multifunctional products (MFPs) and printers. With the plant expansion scheduled to start production in late May 2018, the Plant’s total production capacity of OPC drums is expected to exceed 2.5 times the current capacity by 2020.

The company’s manufacturing subsidiary in China, KYOCERA Document Technology (Dongguan) Co., Ltd. produces OPC drums (consumables) in addition to MFPs and printers. With orders increasing for colour MFPs and printers which are sold in more than 140 countries around the world, Kyocera aims to enhance its production of drums mounted on low- to medium-speed machines and, as a result, decided to expand the Plant to secure the required production capacity.

Contrary to common multilayer, negative charge-type OPC drums, Kyocera’s proprietary drums “retain a high image quality for a long time”, according to the OEM. By introducing highly productive and fully automated production lines, Kyocera will develop a production system that efficiently and flexibly responds to increasing orders. In addition, by building a fully automated production system that is far less affected by possible hikes in labour costs, Kyocera will be able to provide a “stable supply of high-quality products to customers all over the world.”

Furthermore, KYOCERA reveals that it will “actively promote measures to utilize the Internet of Things (IoT), such as visualising various types of site information, including operating conditions of production lines, in order to automatically provide feedback and make improvements based on the collected data.”
