Yokogawa was the world's first company to develop a distributed process control system for the monitoring and control of various types of plant facilities, thereby contributing to the development of a wide range of industries including oil, gas, chemicals, power, iron and steel, pulp and paper, pharmaceuticals, and foods. To help its customers transform their businesses and keep pace with great advances in digital technology and an ever-changing business environment, Yokogawa advocates a Synaptic Business Automation concept that brings together all elements in an organization, and works with its customers as a trusted partner to continually create and add value to their businesses.
Based on the comprehensive OpreX brand for its IA business, Yokogawa provides management consulting on the optimization of supply chains and distribution of management resources, equipment and systems for safe and efficient operations, and ongoing operational, maintenance, and revamping support services. In so doing, Yokogawa delivers comprehensive solutions that help its customers optimize entire value chains and get the most out of their assets over the entire lifecycle of their plant facilities. And by taking advantage of its operational technologies (OT), IT, and deep industry knowledge, Yokogawa is able to spot and visualize issues wherever they may lie hidden in its customers' business operations, and create new value through optimizations that will contribute to their long-term growth.
Yokogawa has been involved in the measurement field since its founding and has contributed to many industries through its supply of measuring instruments and other types of test and measurement equipment. Focusing on new markets such as electric vehicles, renewable energy, environmental measurement, next-generation communication networks, and plant maintenance that are playing instrumental roles in facilitating a low-carbon society, we provide a wide range of voltage, current, electric power, optical power, pressure, and other basic measuring instruments, as well as instruments used in the measurement of waveforms and optical communications.
We offer a confocal scanner unit that is capable of observing life processes on a molecular level in real time, and this is also available as part of a microscopy system that utilizes proprietary high-precision positioning and temperature control technologies.
Through the offering of these devices and systems along with solutions from the IA and control business that are used in quality management, production, and logistics, Yokogawa will develop a life innovation business that targets the pharmaceutical and food industries.
Yokogawa is also steadily developing its aircraft instruments business. Yokogawa's flat panel displays (multifunctional liquid crystal displays) feature high visibility and superb environmental resistance, and are widely used in the cockpit instrument panels of the latest Airbus airliners and other aircraft.
