Smart solution for a sewing factory

JUKI advances its activities to create the most suitable factories by making innovative efforts to solve the various problems a customer faces through the further evolution and systemization of products and IoT.


The biggest challenge facing JUKI customers in the sewing industry is the search for new solutions for stable sewing quality and productivity. JUKI responds by pursuing various forefront technologies targeting innovative product development in the industry. Our efforts have led to the creation of many world-first mechanisms in industrial sewing. Our pursuit and development of the latest technologies also focus on user-friendly operability and maintainability and environment-friendly features such as oilfree operation and electric power saving. We also place priority on comfortable use to meet our customers’ expectations in their long hours of operating JUKI machines by hand. JUKI customers in plants around the world express overwhelming support to JUKI for providing machines that surpass their expectations.

Quick response to overseas customers

In addition to the 4 bases in Japan, we also have R&D offices in China and Vietnam.
We recently added R&D offices in Europe and the US, in order to respond quickly to our customer’s technical requests.

Working stably under all possible conditions

We repeat duration and stitch tests on our machines to maintain stable stitch quality under all possible conditions. We even switch among fabrics and threads produced in different regions while applying extreme heat and cold and variable electric power loads.

Striving to develop “world-first technologies”

We continue to meet customer requirements by creating products integrating mechatronics, electronics, and software for various automatic machines, production management tools and the like.


JUKI’s industrial sewing machines are produced by five factories in three different countries based on the “made-near-the-customer” principle: two factories in Japan, two in China, and one in Vietnam.
The Ohtawara plant, our mother factory, leads the other four factories by promoting the group-wide sharing of know-how, providing trial products for mass production, formulating company-wide plans for standardization, and studying manufacturing methods for construction.
The production process at the Ohtawara plant adheres closely to the practices of “100% good product manufacturing” to maintain JUKI quality as a model for all of the factories in the JUKI group. We also carry out parallel production at two factories to assure stable supply in the event of mishaps such as natural disasters.

Our system for digital cell production

The Ohtawara plant has introduced a digital production system in which every assembly procedure for every cell is displayed on screen, and establishes a stable production system by enabling pro‑cient work skills within short periods, preventing faulty assembly,etc.

Thorough guidance on the six elements of production

Six elements form the basis of JUKI’s production activities: Quality, Cost, Delivery time, Safety, Training, and New products. We follow a management cycle based on standards and strive to upgrade ourselves through ongoing improvement activities.

Training for managers

The Ohtawara plant provides periodic education to the managerial candidates expected to forge the future of our overseas factories at JUKI. Our human resources trained in management, production methods and quality management techniques provide a backbone to JUKI quality.
