CKD

CKD

CKD USA was incorporated in 1985 as a wholly owned subsidiary of CKD Corporation, Komaki, Japan, with the primary responsibility of providing sales and technical support for the Americas. The company's main product offerings are pneumatic components, semiconductor process components, indexing units, dryers, and general-purpose valves. These products are utilized in a wide variety of manufacturing environments, from the automotive industry to semiconductor manufacturing.

CKD USA's distribution network, combined with CKD Corporation's manufacturing capabilities, provides our customers with world-class solutions delivered anywhere in the Americas.

Main Products

CKD offers a broad range of technologies and various kinds of products.

CKD helps various industries by providing a wide range of applied and advanced proprietary technologies.
Since its inception, CKD has researched and developed various kinds of products while constantly predicting and meeting future needs as a pioneer in automation technology. Today, our product lineups have tens of thousands of items, and we play an active role in a broad range of industrial fields. With our comprehensive technological strengths, we can develop creative products in cohort with customers.

Automatic Machinery

CKD cross-industrial lineups of automated machine systems include systems for making lamps and bulbs (inheriting CKD's founding tradition), automatic packaging machines (mainly for pharmaceuticals and foods), and secondary battery manufacturing systems and solder paste inspection machines. CKD is pursuing factory automation in the form of unmanned processes and quality improvement, by taking from these applied technologies an electronic eye that enables measurement and inspection by image processing and recognition.
