Fujifilm expands production capacity

Fujifilm has announced that it will reinforce its production capacity for interchangeable lenses.

The new facilities will go operational in stages, starting in September 2018, and will boost production capacity by approximately 70% by 2020.

To meet the growing demand for mirrorless digital cameras FUJIFILM is adding further production facilities at its Taiwa Factory of Fujifilm Optics. Among the new facilities to be installed are a large-scale cleanroom featuring the cutting-edge cleanroom analyser, as well as facilities that use AI and IoT to improve accuracy in optical adjustments.

The new facilities will enable the production of interchangeable lenses at high quality and efficiency, resulting in advanced productivity in manufacturing ultra wide-angle lenses and large-diameter lenses, which require a high level of image resolving performance, according to Fujifilm.

Fujifilm’s current lineup of interchangeable lenses includes 36 models, with sales expanding at the rate of over 20% per annum.
