Contributes to the resolution of issues
related to the modification of the surfaces

By combining the unique technology of CMF design, printing, coating, material design and material evaluation developed independently based on printing, Nissha contributes to the resolution of issues related to the modification of the surfaces of customers' products and to the creation of added value.

Printing and Coating technology

    Elongated printing is possible using roll-to-roll printing machines.  Equipped with facilities for printing films 650 mm.

Coating technology

Coating technology is technology that forms functional films on the surface of materials in accordance with application.

  • Wet coating technology
    Nissha owns various coating technology such as gravure coating and dye coating, etc. It has technology that realizes coating for large products and highly efficient production using coaters with a maximum width up to 2,150 mm.
  • Dry coating technology
    This is technology that can build up layers of metal or metal compounds, etc., using vacuum vapor deposition or spattering. 
  • Heat processing technology
    A technology for stabilizing film quality such as by enhancing the performance of the functional layer, volatilizing residual solvents, and improving heat resistance. Equipped with facilities for roll-to-roll processing of 650 mm–1,100 mm widths.

Product processing, Mold design and injection molding technology

Product processing technology

This is technology to increase customer value by using items produced by processes using printing or coating technology to give further added value. Product processing technology is technology to increase customer value by using items produced by processes using printing or coating technology to give further added value.

  • Transfer technology
  • 3D transfer/lamination technology
  • Bonding technology   
    This is technology that bonds multiple materials so that air bubbles do not form.
  • Forming technology   
    This is technology that forms functional films and decorative films in arbitrary shapes using heat or pressure.

Mold design and production technology

Nissha can design and produce everything from IMD and IML molds. We supply precise molds in accordance with customer requests. Precise mirror finishing and special surface texturing are also possible.

Injection molding technology

Various types of functional and decorative film and IMD foil insert molding are possible. Nissha can also combine this technology with IMD foils, films and molds to provide everything from prototype molding to mass production molding as a total solution.

Design/CMF proposal capabilities


Product surface design is known as CMF design. The letters CMF stand for color, material and finish, and by combining these three elements, Nissha realizes expressions that meet product function requirements and appeal to people's hearts.
For example, even with the same black color, the expression of product will be different depending on the materials used (plastic, metal, glass, leather, ink) and the finish processing (coating, patterning, polishing, surface texturing).
At Nissha, we do not simply combine element technologies, we use design methods to make proposals that create new value.

Nissha realizes the high functionality demanded by
touch input devices with a wealth of knowhow and
state of the cutting-edge manufacturing facilities


Nissha creates touch sensors by applying photoengraving technology to electronic parts. The Company boasts global top-level technology in the medium to small size area of parts used in mobile phones and gaming gear. We realize the quality demanded by touch sensors including lightness, thinness, ease of vision and accuracy of operation, etc., with a wealth of knowhow and state of the cutting-edge manufacturing facilities.

Film sensor manufacturing technology

Screen printing technology

Nissha factory

Nissha realizes the patterning of conductive materials in line with customer demands based on superior plate making and printing technology. We have multiple roll-to-roll printers so lengthy printing is possible.

Laser processing technology

Nissha has conductive film patterning technology based on laser irradiation that does not require plate making for small-lot manufacturing and 3D film sensors.


For large-scale manufacturing, Nissha realizes conductive film patterning in accordance with customer needs based on photolithography using photo-masks.
While the electrostatic capacitive film sensors created using this technology have narrow frame and permeability equivalent to competing glass sensors, they also combine the thinness, lightness and unbreakable sturdiness unique to film to respond to market trends.

Etching processing technology

Nissha etches metal films mounted with resists formed by the various methods of screen printing, laser processing and photolithography. Sensors made up from routing circuits in the narrow frame are manufactured using this process.

Modularization technology

FPC/IC mounting technology, lamination technology

Nissha is also able to supply FPCs mounted not only with film sensors alone, but specialist ICs too, and as “A cover modules” bonded with cover parts. This contributes to richly expressive decoration, stable input and the increased thinness of products.

Gas Sensors

Equipped with all design technologies necessary for gas sensing

Gas element technology

Semiconductor gas sensors, other gas sensors, and applied equipment in recent years feature ever more advanced sensitivity and accuracy, and are used in an expanding range of fields. For accurate detection of the target gas, however, it is not enough that the sensor alone incorporates excellent technologies. We develop and manufacture everything from gas sensors alone to finished products such as modules, checkers, and analyzers. By being equipped with all elemental technologies necessary for gas sensing, we offer products that meet customer needs—high sensitivity, high accuracy, easy operability, and high reliability—in a broad range of fields including safety, the environment, health, medical care, automobiles and measurement.

Gas sensor design technologies

Material synthesis –The key to gas sensing–

We prepare original materials to manufacture sensors tailored to the properties of the target gas. Material synthesis is the key to gas sensing and an area that best showcases the expertise of Nissha group company FIS Inc.

Micromachining –Development of small size, low power consumption sensors–

Sensor miniaturization presents numerous advantages, from power and cost savings to quick response times and expanded scope of application. FIS uses proprietary micromachining technologies in processes such as electrode machining and the formation of gas-sensing bodies to develop and manufacture small size, low power consumption sensors including MEMS* gas sensors.
* MEMS: Micro Electro Mechanical Systems

Facility design –Manufacturing equipment designed in-house–

FIS factory

Micromachining and manufacturing gas sensors require special processes and equipment. FIS designs its own equipment, such as automatic applicators of gas-sensing materials, to realize inimitable small size, high performance, and high reliability.

Product design technologies

Structural design –The optimal design for each product–

Each component of the gas sensor serves a purpose, down to the last tube. By tailoring various elements such as structure, layout, and materials to the purpose of the product, we can equip the gas sensor with unique functions.

Control circuit design –Realizing high sensitivity and low noise–

Improvements in sensitivity pose a challenge: the gas sensor is that much more susceptible to noise, or gases other than the target gas present in the surrounding environment. Control circuit design is an important means of controlling this noise as well as ensuring user-friendliness of the product including the software. FIS designs original control circuits to present products that play up the strengths and play down the weaknesses of various sensors.

Software development

FIS develops original software tailored to each product for easy operation even without specialized knowledge. The software can be customized according to customer needs.
