Showa Denko K.K. has expanded its hard disk media production capacity at the Showa Denko HD Singapore Pte. Ltd (SHDS) by one million disks a month to meet growing demand for hard disks for use in PCs, car navigation systems and MP3 players.

Expansion work on the five new lines was carried out from February through October this year. The lines are now in full operation as SHDS has obtained approvals from relevant hard disk drive manufacturers, increasing SHDS' capacity to 3.1 million disks a month, involving aluminum- and glass-substrate hard disks with diameters of 2.5, 3.0 and 3.5 inches.

SDK also produces hard disks in Ichihara, Japan. After the expansion in Singapore, SDK's total hard disk media production capacity has reached 6.3 million disks a month (3.2 million in Ichihara and 3.1 million in Singapore).
