“We want to broadcast the latest news about factory automation (FA) equipment and technologies FROM Japan”. This is the one and only reason why we started this all English –written news site.
None of our staff is English native speaker, but we met the highly sophisticated automatic translation software “T-4OO” from Rosetta. Our articles might contain some mistakes and unnatural texts, and some information must be lost in translation. However, we believe that it is better than telling nothing.

SEISANZAI means factory automation equipment in Japanese, so this news site named after our flagship magazine “SEISANZAI Marketing”, all written in Japanese. The articles broadcasted in this website are all from the magazine so that all people over the world can share the same latest news in real time.

This website is run by News Digest Publishing (ND) which was established in 1964 and has been publishing books all about metalworking technologies. ND is also organizes the manufacturing technology show “MECHATRONICS TECHNOLOGY JAPAN” (MECT) biyearly in Nagoya Japan.
