Nikon Products Receive Good Design Award

Nikon (Tokyo) — Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce that its products, the Nikon Z mount system and the Lasermeister 100A, have received the “Good Design Award” organized by Japan Institute of Design Promotion.

The Z mount system comprises mirrorless cameras featuring a larger-diameter mount, and compatible Nikkor Z lenses and accessories.

This system has been realized through the pursuit of a new dimension in optical performance. It has inherited Nikon’s tradition of quality, superior imaging technology, great operability, and high reliability, all innovated from its digital SLR cameras. Nikkor Z lenses realized its superior optical performance, by taking advantage of the high design flexibility made possible by the combination of the larger Z mount with its inner diameter of 55 mm, and a short flange focal distance of 16 mm.

The optical processing machine, Lasermeister 100A, is a Nikon’s proprietary metal processing machine that performs various metal processing with ease using laser. Its capability encompasses additive manufacturing as a 3D printer, laser marking and welding.

The advanced optical technology and precision control technology developed for Nikon’s lithography systems enabled us to realize a high quality, smaller sized and less expensive processing machine.
