ESG / CSR Initiatives

Connect to the future

What we can do for people, the environment and society

"Transportation Systems" to support the safety of railway infrastructure with electrical equipments such as Pantographs and Driving gear units.
"Industrial Systems" to help people's lives and energy saving with automotive development, processing equipment, electrical products for power generation infrastructure.
"Information Equipment Systems" to watch the work comfortably in the network such as terminals for stations and conductors, monitoring control of remote facilities, etc.
In our three businesses, we are manufacturing things that help the environment and society (ESG).
With the 100th anniversary, the new plant "Shiga Ryuo Plant" has started operation.
We will contribute to the realization of a sustainable society by further leveraging our accumulated technology and experience.

Our Heart and Technology for the Future

Toyo Denki Seizo Report

Toyo Denki Seizo Report

Our Strong Track Record

  • Shinkansen Technology

    Technology to improve the energy efficiency of Shinkansen trains

    Toyo Denki has been providing a variety of electrical equipment for the Tokaido Shinkansen since its launch in 1964, helping to support major advances in technology. For example, the N700 Series Shinkansen (pictured at left) consumes significantly less energy than the first Shinkansen train that rolled into service, consuming about 32% less energy. Toyo Denki’s traction motors and reduction gear units (or driving gear units) are helping to reduce energy consumption.

  • E³ Solution System

    Energy recycling solution for railways

    The E³ Solution System is a railway energy storage system that combines Toyo Denki’s high performance DC/DC converter with high capacity lithium-ion batteries to store and supply regenerative energy. The system effectively compensates for voltage drops from contact lines and enables leveling of peak power demand.

  • Beijing Subway Mass Transit

    Supplying electrical equipment for mass transit and helping to relieve traffic congestion

    Toyo Denki supplies many types of electrical equipment for the Beijing Subway system. This equipment is used on Line 10, which provides access to sites for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, as well as Line 1 and the Batong Line. Toyo Denki technology is helping to relieve traffic congestion.

  • Towing Locomotives for Panama Canal

    Supporting safe, expeditious transit of vessels through the Panama Canal

    When a vessel passes a lock in the Panama Canal, towing locomotives pull the vessel from both walls of the lock in order to prevent collisions with walls. Toyo Denki has been providing electrical equipment for the towing locomotives since 1964.

  • Energy-Efficient Rotary Press Equipment

    Eco-drive (ED) motors with inverters deliver high precision and energy-efficient performance

    Modern rotary presses use a completely shaftless design that relies on multiple motors for highly precise positioning control. These presses have largely replaced conventional designs that rely on mechanical shafts. Toyo Denki provides ED motors and intelligent inverters for many shaftless rotary presses used in Japan and abroad, delivering high precision and energy efficient performance as well as low noise.

  • Automotive Testing Equipment

    Helping to accelerate automotive development and reduce CO2 emissions

    Toyo Denki supplies automotive testing equipment for automakers to use in the development of new car designs and for quality assurance purposes. The testing equipment must satisfy diverse requirements for reliability, safety, low energy consumption, operability and low noise. By using Toyo Denki’s testing equipment, automakers are able to accelerate their automotive development and improve engine performance, which is in turn contributing to the reduction of CO2 emissions.

  • Renewable Biomass Energy

    Reducing CO2 emissions and waste

    There is renewed interest today in power generation that relies on renewable sources of energy as an alternative to fossil fuels, including biomass fuel made from biological resources. Toyo Denki supplies biomass power generating equipment that is fueled by processed sugarcane waste products from sugar manufacturing, which helps to reduce both CO2 emissions and waste.

  • Smart Card-Based Station Operating Equipment

    Facilitating transit access and reducing paper waste

    Toyo Denki manufactures automatic fare adjustment and commuter ticket vending machines with smart card technology that are improving convenience for rail and bus users while facilitating transit access. Smart card technology contributes to reducing paper waste, which is why Toyo Denki is focusing its energies on developing station operating equipment that will spur the widespread adoption of smart card technology.
