Keywords:Showa Denko K.K.? SDK? hard disk? HD?

Showa Denko K.K. (SDK) has increased its hard disk (HD) media production capacity to 13.75 million disks per month, up 3.05 million disks per month, as a result of the construction of new lines and the debottlenecking of existing lines at the three production sites in Chiba (Japan), Singapore and Taiwan.

SDK's newly constructed lines focus on the production of HD media based on the new perpendicular magnetic recording technology, which the company commercialized in June 2005.

SDK is now building a new HD media plant in Singapore to meet growing demand. After the completion of the building and the cleanroom, the company will install production lines. The first-phase commercial production will start by the end of 2006. SDK will further increase the total capacity to 24 million disks per month by the end of 2008, as a result of the construction of the new plant in Singapore and other expansionary measures at the existing three sites.
