Murata’s monozukuri (manufacturing)

Materials

Murata has established technologies to precisely control ceramic materials and electrode materials that critically determine the properties of electronic components.

Sheet casting

From ceramic sheets that are 1 μm or less in thickness to complexly shaped filters created by injection forming, we pursue an ideal shape aligned with each function.

Sintering

When sintered, ceramic crystal structures shift to achieve certain properties. Sintering is a technique to control these invisible changes within a furnace.

Processing and finishing

Once materials have gained the desired electric properties from the previous processes up to sintering, ceramics are formed into electronic components through various additional processing.

Inspection and packaging

Once completed, products are delivered to customers only after rigorous testing proves that they are worthy of the Murata label.
