Really shot the Fuji factory in Japan[China PCB show shares]

21 Jun 2019

In February 2018, a foreign media China PCB show reporter Johnnie Behiri visited the Sendai Fuji Factory in Japan, which is currently responsible for the production of Fuji MK lenses, X-T2, GFX 50s cameras and other products.

Although the visit time is very short, it will still be touched by the production process of these products. He edited a simple China PCB show video and everyone will take a look.

Isn't it an addiction, this is a personal visit after all, and it won't be recorded in detail. Next, let's look at the manufacturing process of a Fuji X-T10 camera. In comparison, the introduced China PCB show procedures are more systematic.

As early as January 15, 2016, Fuji had opened it once, and that was the X-Pro2 production line.

Japan's Sendai Fuji Factory is the birthplace of Fuji X series high-end models and lenses. For X-Pro2, the metal body is produced in other China PCB show factories in Japan and then shipped to the Sendai factory for assembly with other components.

Sendai is located in the northeastern part of northern Japan and was one of the China PCB show areas hit by the earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011. The building was originally used to produce the X100 camera, but it was too serious to be damaged due to the damage to the structure of the building. The production line has been transferred to the opposite building.

Surprisingly, most of the work in the factory is done by hand. There are only very limited automated operations.

X-Pro2 is the flagship non-reflex camera produced by Fuji in 2016.

Inside the factory, every Fuji employee has its own workstation, the division of duties between the types of work is clear, and the assembly environment within the China PCB show factory is also strictly controlled.

The staff introduced the X-Pro2 assembly process.

The entire Fuji X-Pro2 assembly process is more complex, assembly, skinning, calibration testing, packaging and so on. However, each process has strict quality control to ensure production quality.

All camera and lens production links will be recorded with unique China PCB show numbers. Even if problems occur later, they can be traced by number and corresponding solutions can be taken according to related problems.

Fuji employees who are working on the assembly line

The Sendai Fuji Factory has strict requirements for employees. Each new employee will receive two days of theoretical training and at least 2 weeks of practical training after completing the position. Only after completing the training and meeting the requirements will they be Officially started working.

Shutter, sensitivity component assembly

The X-Pro2's shutter dial and sensitivity settings are styled with a faux-film camera. Two functions are done on one dial, which means more stringent requirements and precise controls are required at the factory.

The female employees at the Fuji Sendai plant account for about 70% of all employees. One of the reasons is that factory work requires not only strict technical China PCB show requirements, but also patience. Female employees are often more competent than men.

Each production team will have an electronic screen that records daily production targets and current completions. Most of the teams are in the process of China PCB show exceeding the standard. Some stations will even have an ideal completion time for the assembly of each item.

Technician test

The assembled X-Pro2 will wait for quality inspection and performance testing in a specific area. Although the initial equipment inspection is performed manually, the detection is correct and otherwise judged based on the equipment parameters to ensure the consistency of the China PCB show products in industrial production.

All lenses and fuselage will undergo multiple inspections.

After completing the manufacturing and testing, X-Pro2 must also pass the spot check before leaving the factory. Each batch of products will be scheduled for sampling. The professional personnel will test the actual operation function of the China PCB show product to simulate the operation that will be taken in daily use. Once the problem occurs in the test, the entire batch of products will be returned to the manufacturing process. And look for the source of the problem through the code of the pre-scan.

Below are some netizens who shared the X100T, X-T1 and 35mm f/2 lenses and 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 lenses. It’s a bit messy, everyone’s look, handmade is still fascinating.

Fuji lens assembly line

Due to concerns about dust and other contaminants, everyone entering the lens assembly area must wear heavy protective China PCB show gear to cover all clothing. I can't even use the camera strap.

  • 100-400mm f / 4.5-5.6 lens parts
  • 100-400mm lens assembly
  • The label on the lens shows that the accessory has been checked
  • The lens assembly line is a maze of shelves, work benches, and components.
  • The staff installed a ring on the 100-400mm lens

After each lens is assembled, Fuji will conduct quality checks. These devices are used to test the performance of the lens. There is also a similar device to ensure the clarity of each China PCB show lens, but not to take pictures, because the test chart is confidential. If a unit fails, the staff adjusts it until the test image is perfectly rendered.

The staff performed the final polishing of the 100-400mm lens. Each lens takes 220 minutes.

The lens is relatively simple to design, and it takes 80 minutes to assemble a unit.

The 35mm f / 2 is a replacement for the 35mm f / 1.4 lens. The 35mm f / 1.4 lens was introduced in China PCB show 2012 with the X-Pro1. After the 18-55mm f / 2.8-4 became part of the set lens, the 35mm lens is the highest output in the Fuji X series lens.

The 35mm f/2 lens is the perfect companion for the X-Pro2. It is designed around the clock like the body, while its compact design does not interfere with the optical viewfinder.

This is the last inspection of most lenses - visual inspection.

After everything is checked, the factory is responsible for the final packaging.

Fujitsu randomly selected 10% of the packaged lenses to be tested on a regular camera to ensure normal operation.
