Environment, Quality, and Safety

KEYENCE is fulfilling its societal responsibilities, including our responsibility to protect the environment, through our business activities and products.

Environment

Contributing to the Earth's Environment through Our Products

KEYENCE products are environmentally friendly. In addition to producing our products according to ISO-14001 with minimized impact on the environment, KEYENCE products can contribute to environmental protection as envisioned by KEYENCE by reducing the environmental burden on our customer's production sites and the whole of society.

In other words, KEYENCE creates products with high-added-value that use fewer resources and lower amounts of energy. The burden on the environment can also be reduced by improving productivity in the customer's production sites through the use of KEYENCE products.

The pursuit of higher added-value is closely related to contributing to the environment.

Helping our customers to
reduce costs and improve earnings

Smaller, reducing materials

PR Series Photoelectric Sensor

A unique hybrid structure enables shock resistance five times better than conventional products along with an 81% reduction in size. KEYENCE photoelectric sensors are the smallest in their class and provide advanced sensor functionality.

Stronger, long-term use of materials

GL-R Series Safety Light Curtain

Robustness in all directions is achieved to minimize the need for replacing failed parts. In addition to protecting the optical surfaces, which fail most frequently, a "big twin bumper" structure protects the display parts as well, and highly robust and shock-resistant mounting brackets are used.

Faster, effectively using energy

LJ-V Series 2D Laser Displacement Sensor

These products offer the fastest sampling speed of any 2D laser measuring instrument in the world (at the time of release). It can reliably measure the profile/shape of products at high speed, while reducing variations in measurement results at the same time.

Quality

KEYENCE products serve an important function which continuously supports the production activities of our customers, and for this reason, a very high level of quality is demanded. We provide high-quality products to customers throughout the world to support customer's business activities. KEYENCE products also improve the productivity in our customer's production sites and the quality of products produced there. This is how KEYENCE contributes to quality.

Simple, Fast, and Accurate

IM-7000 Series Image Dimension Measurement System

Conventional challenges on measuring product dimensions can be solved, such as taking significant time for positioning the object, variance of measurement results from person to person, and small number of operators with operational skill.

Simple “Place-and-Press” operation required for measurement, which is easily completed in a few seconds.
Appropriate quality check with high efficiency can be realized.

Traceability

MD-X Series 3-Axis Hybrid Laser Marker

Hybrid Laser Marker with high peak and high output power, achieving both the quality of sharp marking (from YVO4 laser) and high-speed marking (from fiber laser).
This product is equipped with newly developed laser cavity to provide precise and fast marking on plastics and metal, which aids in product traceability.

SR-2000 Series 1D/2D Code Reader

This product is capable of reading 2D codes on any surface, including plastics and/or metal, which has been hard to read in the past.
Simple setup and installation can enable stable reading of 1D/2D codes due to the advanced design. In addition, the ability to read codes on high-speed moving objects and an expanded field of view has been achieved.

Safety

In addition to protecting the safety and health of our employees, KEYENCE also provides products to help improve safety at our customer's production sites, and KEYENCE is engaged in efforts to help reduce the burden of safety and health management. Specifically, KEYENCE develops safety devices that ensure the safety of workers around dangerous elements of the machines and robots used at production sites and helps maintain productivity, and KEYENCE promotes on-site safety improvements at the same time.

SZ-V Series Safety Laser Scanner

Safety measures are required in factories, but productivity can also decrease due to those safety measures. The SZ-V Series achieves both safety and productivity through new technologies and innovative ideas.

Intrusion detection for workers entering hazardous areas

Collision prevention for automated guided vehicle

ISO 9001/14001 Certification

KEYENCE's approach for contributing to society through our business activities and products has been certified according to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 by a third-party certification body.
