About Niigata

30 Years of Experience

NIIGATA is famous for its all-electric molding technology, first exhibiting an all-electric IMM at the Japan Plastics Fair way back in 1984, NIIGATA has continued to lead in the R&D of all-electric molding technology.

Built on over 30 years of experience manufacturing all-electric molding machines 100% in Japan, the NIIGATA brand is synonymous with extreme reliability, high precision, heavy duty all-electric molding, a machine made for serious molders, and demanding operations. Featuring industry leading patents and controls, long period holding pressures, and remote monitoring via the cloud, PC, tablets and smartphones, NIIGATA is a true heavyweight in the industry. Our machines are so robust, they typically weigh thousands of pounds more than the competitors' similar machine, while still delivering a smaller foot-print to maximize your factory floor space.

Having discontinued manufacture of hydraulic based machines in the late 1990's, NIIGATA focuses solely on providing the all-electric market with the industry's most reliable, fully servo driven IMM, built to unwavering Japanese quality standards.

NIIGATA has stayed in the lead in the industry by being the first in Japan to develop the All Electric Injection Molding Machine from a conventional hydraulic type, and to commercialize the world’s first ALL ELECTRIC Vertical Injection Molding Machine and large-size ALL ELECTRIC Injection Molding Machines (600 tons and above.

As the company that leads the world in the development of all electric injection molding machines, NIIGATA’s goal is to develop globally through innovative ideas and advanced technology, and to provide even greater satisfaction to its customers.
