Oki Electric Cable plays an essential part in the history of telecommunications in Japan. The Meikosha company was founded as the first telecommunication instrument manufacturer in Japan in 1881. The founder’s invention of lacquer-coated wires was followed by enamel wires, which were mass-produced by Meikosha’s electric wire and cable division. Meikosha later changed its name to Oki Company, and then to Oki Electric Co., Ltd. In 1936, the electric wire and cable manufacturing department was spun off, and Oki Electric Cable Co., Ltd. was born.
Since then, Oki Electric Cable has consistently developed leading cable and wire technologies and aims to be a world-class company at the top of three markets for electric cables, flexible printed circuits (FPC), and EDM wires.
Oki Electric Cable offers unique products such as high-flex cables, high- speed interface cables and FPCs. Oki works closely with customers in FA (Factory Automation), Medical and Machine Vision equipment markets to determine their needs and improve and develop products that address those needs. Oki also applies this same approach to many other applications and industries including the aerospace business, where the company’s unique “Long FPC”, 14 meter version, was used in JAXA’s solar power sail demonstration aircraft “IKAROS”.
