Hothouse for nurturing the creativity of young engineers: Muratec R&D Center.
This center opened on the grounds of the head office in the spring of 1992. With the aim of instituting an improved cooperative relationship between man and scientific technology, the Muratec R&D Center was established by Murata Machinery to provide technological expertise to its five divisions: textile machinery, machine tools, automated systems, communication equipment, and clean systems. It also functions as an interdivisional networking base where the latest research information is integrated. Leading scholars and researchers around the world are invited there to engage in technical exchange covering a wide range of subjects, lecture at study sessions, and attending informal gatherings.
