Contributing to lifestyles through technological competency, with eyes set on the future

Kurabo’s electronics business contributes to the advancement of manufacturing by providing inspection and measuring devices centered on color sensing technology. While the engineering business has its foundations in environmental plant technologies such as wastewater and waste gas treatment, it is also expanding into biomass power generation. The biomedical business offers reagents, equipment, and services for drug discovery, cosmetics development, and preclinical studies. The machine tools business produces machinery for manufacturing products that make people’s lives more convenient and comfortable. These businesses make up Kurabo’s Advanced Technology Division, which contributes to safety, security, and comfort in people's lives through advanced manufacturing, research, and energy utilization.

Business Fields and Main Products

Electronics Field

Color and image processing technology

3D vision robot systemKURASENSE
Combining numerous types of robots with high-speed 3D vision sensors for recognizing cables, KURASENSE makes possible handling systems for linear objects such as cables, something difficult to achieve with conventional automation.See more(Japanese only)
Infrastructure management systemPG-4 compact pavement inspection system
Equipped with 3D cameras, a speedometer, and GPS, this inspection unit can detect road damage at a speed of 100 km/h, thus dramatically shortening inspection time. It contributes to efficient diagnosis of infrastructure deterioration.See more

Environmental plant equipment

Effluent treatment facilities
We design and build water treatment facilities that satisfy a wide variety of customer needs, including public facilities such as effluent water treatment equipment for municipal incinerators and effluent treatment systems for industry.See more
Exhaust gas treatment equipment
We manufacture a comprehensive lineup of exhaust gas treatment equipment. Products include wet-type equipment for removing SOx and HCL, denitration equipment for breaking down NOx with catalysts and reducing agents, and dust-collecting equipment that uses coulomb force and filter cloth.See more

Biomass power plant and auxiliary facilities

Biomass power plant
We operate a biomass power plant that combines our proprietary fluidized-bed boiler technology with steam turbines and that runs on biomass fuel such as timber from forest thinning.
Fluidized-bed boiler(heat treatment equipment)
By using waste plastic, RPF (refuse paper and plastic fuel), and sludge, in addition to biomass fuel such as wood and tire chips, energy is collected in the form of steam or high-temperature air. When combined with steam turbines, generation of electricity is possible.See more

Regenerative medicine-related products

Normal human epidermal keratinocyteNHEK(NB), NHEK(AD)
Two types of cells—newborn infant-derived and adult-derived cells—and a serum-free culture medium especially formulated for keratinized cells are available. In-house QC data and donor information are provided for each lot. Reservation of a specified lot is possible.See more
3D skin modelEPI-200
A restructured model consisting of normal human epidermal keratinocyte. The 3D structure is similar to human skin, which is multilayered and highly differentiated. This effective replacement for traditional animal testing is used in a range of tests.See more

Gene analysis-related products

DNA detection kitGeneFields
This kit allows for simple, low-cost, and highly sensitive genetic testing. The kit can be used to visually identify multiple genes. It is marketed for a wide range of testing, such as for food poisoning bacteria in feces, impurities in food such as hair, blood, and bones, and alcohol metabolism.See more
Nucleic-acid extraction equipmentQuickGene
QuickGene is a system that quickly extracts DNA and RNA from a sample with high purity. The product lineup is extensive and ranges from fully automatic devices to small-scale extraction equipment.See more
