Announcement of a capital and business alliance with Nagase Sangyo Co., Ltd.




Piezo Sonic Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Setagaya-ku, Tokyo, Deputy Director: Kohei Tada, hereinafter "Piezo Sonic") is a subsidiary of Nagase Sangyo Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Deputy Director: Hiroyuki Ueshima, hereinafter "Nagase Sangyo"). We would like to inform you that we have entered into a capital and business alliance with ). Piezo Sonic will work to further strengthen its development capabilities with Nagase Sangyo's investment. By investing in Piezo Sonic, Nagase Sangyo will gain knowledge in areas different from its existing businesses, which it will use to establish new businesses.

Piezo Sonic is a hardware startup company that develops, manufactures, and sells ultrasonic motors and robots. With Nagase Sangyo's investment, our company has strengthened its manufacturing capabilities for ultrasonic motors and autonomous transport robots, and has developed vacuum ultrasonic motors for use in semiconductor manufacturing facilities and aerospace equipment—areas where we will continue to strengthen our capabilities.

Our piezosonic motor, which is an ultrasonic motor, can maintain its posture using friction force even when there is no current (when it is not powered or controlled). Since it does not use magnetic force or emit magnetism when driving, it is an ideal motor for transportation equipment such as tables, positioning mechanisms for robots, and equipment used in magnetic field environments such as MRI.

As a product incorporating this engine, we have developed and are selling the Mighty series, a transport AMR that can travel on rough surfaces by using the driving mechanism of the lunar surface exploration rover. In cooperation with Nagase Sangyo, we will work on developing new technologies and functions in addition to automatic transportation of products and test samples and DX of patrol operations.
