The Microfluidics Solutions Business Unit of FUNAI Electric

Funai Electric Microfluidics Solutions Business Unit develops new print business in collaboration with customers through its own print engine and ink cartridge technologies. For many years, we have been an OEM of Lexmark, the world's leading printer manufacturer, and in 2013, we acquired development technology, a manufacturing plant, and patent rights for printer-related products from Lexmark.

As a result, we manufacture hardware and ink cartridges in-house, and provide solutions to customers who are developing or planning to develop printing businesses.

Benefits provided by our resources

"I have printer and ink, so I just need a cartridge." "I want an ink cartridge that can operate without modifying existing equipment." If you have any such issues, please contact us. Our cartridge lineup provides empty ink cartridges for customers to select.

In addition to cartridges, we also respond to customer requests for print engines, which is the core technology of printers. Engine development usually takes a considerable amount of time and money. According to printing objects and customers’ requests, we provide various engines.

By customizing our various development resources, customers can significantly reduce their development time and costs.
