Providing solar modules worldwide will have a favorable impact on the global environment. It’s just one of the ways Kyocera products are contributing to the world we live in.

Applied ceramic technologies offer diverse benefits in a wide range of fields, including environmental protection, healthcare, manufacturing and even fashion.

Kyocera has expanded the use of fine ceramics in industrial applications around the world, advancing its technology to develop new products for many emerging markets. After starting solar development in 1975, we were the first company in the world to establish mass production technology for multicrystalline silicon solar cells using the casting method, now the industry standard. We have also developed storage batteries to more effectively use energy. In the medical field, we support health and wellness by offering dental implants and orthopedic joint replacement systems. Kyocera's applied ceramic technology is at work in products ranging from jewelry, which beautifies everyday life, to industrial cutting tools, which enhance manufacturing productivity.

Lithium-Ion Power Storage Enhances Solar Power Generating Systems Residential Solar Power Generating Systems
Long-lasting, high-capacity lithium-ion battery storage units are used in conjunction with solar power generating systems and home energy management systems (HEMS). They help provide a more stable supply of electricity while acting as an emergency power source during power outages.
Cutting Tools
Cutting Tools "CERATIP"
Cutting Tools

Cutting tools are essential to the field of metal processing. Kyocera supports the industry with unique cutting tools based on advances in cemented carbides, cermet materials and coating technologies.

Industrial Precision Blades Industrial Precision Blades

Industrial precision blades made from ceramics and cemented carbides are used to process a wide variety of materials, including liquid crystal films, automotive tires and specialized textiles.

Printed Circuit Board Micro Drills Printed Circuit Board Micro Drills

Micro drills with diameters smaller than a human hair help produce compact, high-density substrates for mobile phones and semiconductor packages.

Medical and Dental Products
Orthopedic Joint and Bone Replacement Systems

Kyocera creates orthopedic joint replacement systems by integrating the most advanced ceramic and metal technologies. Our Aquala® technology was the first in the world to combine a biocompatible polymer with the joint material. We continually work to further enhance the durability of orthopedic joint systems.
