Bringing innovation
to all manufacturing processes through the power of AI

Aixtal is a Nagoya University startup that offers

dramatic efficiency gains in product development

through process informatics.

From AI x crystal growth
to AI x all manufacturing process


“There must be a way to make high-quality crystal manufacturing even faster.”

Our business was founded on the premise of challenging ourselves to innovate and apply
AI-powered process informatics technology to the manufacture of semiconductor crystals
— a process that used to take 30 years from materials research to practical application.



Process Informatics

Using artificial intelligence technology in process design lets us more efficiently find the desired conditions in the shortest time possible. With Aixtal’s unique approach, analysis and optimization can be achieved in a short period of time using a limited amount of past data — especially at manufacturing sites where accumulating big data is difficult.


AI Training

The key to success in AI-based projects is having specialized knowledge about the subject. It is very important for engineers with specialized knowledge in the manufacturing industry to learn about AI. Aixtal’s AI training business provides training curricula that is specifically for the manufacturing industry.
