ERI was established as a section of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Machine Industry (JSPMI) with the aim of (1) conducting research for the machine industry (including industrial sectors, such as electrical and non-electrical machinery, transport equipment, and precision machinery); (2) undertaking joint and commissioned research for other organizations; and (3) undertaking administration of the Machine Industry Library. In April 1971, a special membership section of ERI was organized, and through this system the institute has been offering appropriate material and information to interested industries, enterprises, and public organizations in order to disseminate research results.
