The Seibu Giken Group was born as Seibu Giken Technology Research, and as this name implies, research and development form a major pillar of the company. We realize thorough quality control on the products that are the result of this research and development by handling every step of the process from manufacturing to maintenance, and with our high level of technology, we consistently provide the best rotors to our customers. Our development approach, in which we repeatedly provide in-depth feedback every step of the way from development to commercialization and flexibly give shape to ideas that go beyond technology, is a crucial factor in our competitiveness. We have attracted attention to many of our original products, and we are also engaged in basic research with universities and research institutions as well as joint ventures with leading companies both domestic and abroad.
Develop the honeycomb.
With our technology, we can form all kinds of materials into honeycombs of various sizes, and we can load and support adsorbents, deodorizers in order to give functions to the materials efficiently.
Honeycomb structure contributes to maintaining low pressure drop as the structure has high surface area of impregnated/supported materials.
Make full use of the honeycomb.
With our technology, we can transform functional honeycombs into rotors. Rotating honeycomb rotor and manipulating its temperature, it can be used to adsorb and desorb the gas to be processed and to exchange heat.
Honeycomb rotors enable to process large volumes of gas continuously.
The honeycomb structure makes it possible to control quality of air.
As air passes through the honeycomb structure, the quality of the air changes as it contacts the honeycomb material.
Our products solve a wide range of problems concerning controlling the air quality by adding functions to honeycomb structure.

We use our track record of unflagging research to deliver products and services to our customers.
Our strong commitment to performance quality is all part of our process.
We have attracted attention to many of our original products, and we are also engaged in basic research with universities and research institutions as well as joint ventures with leading companies both domestic and abroad.
Initiatives for the future
CO2 separation, capture, and concentration technology
We are working on the technology development to separate, capture, and concentrate carbon dioxide (CO2) from various environments to realize a climate-neutral society.
By bringing new products to market, we aim to make a new contribution to reducing the environmental impact to our planet.
In addition to the technologies listed above, we are also engaged in various forms of technological development.
- [Examples of joint research]
- Program to Support the Advancement of Strategic Fundamental Technologies
- NEDO Leading Research Program
- Moonshot Research and Development Program (subcontracted)
Since its foundation, Seibu Giken has actively acquired intellectual property rights.
Patent strategy is becoming increasingly important in response to global demand.
The Seibu Giken Group originated as a laboratory and scientific research institute, and from our inception, we have possessed both original ideas and the development capacity and technical acumen to commercialize those ideas. Over the past 50 years of research and development, we have acquired more than 100 patents in Japan and around the world to increase our international competitiveness, and the importance of these patents is growing year by year.
