SP found in Taichung, Taiwan


Mass production for digital camera shutter has been launched. With advanced micro electronic technology, we successfully developed mini shutter for mobile phone application. We also developed user friendly, highly precise and efficient optical inspection equipment.

Invention – Polar series alignment dynamo


history

Considering our leading electronic mini motor technologies, we started to develop a new, efficient and advanced dynamo for hub application. During the tough developing period, SP design team consistently persisted in its perfection commitment, and successfully created a brand new dynamo invention. This is called polar series alignment dynamo. It is a totally brand new invention at dynamo field.
