NISSEI injection molding machines have been one of the most widely used workhorses for medical molders around the globe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the US, there is a strong ongoing need for “micro molding” machines among the medical equipment and electronic parts industries. Prior to the pandemic, NISSEI’s sales percentages to medical molders were 17% in 2018 and 15% in 2019. During the pandemic, the percentages have significantly increased to 39% in 2020 and 31% in 2021.
Under these circumstances, NISSEI PLASTIC INDUSTRIAL developed a new micro molding machine, NEX30Ⅳ-1EN1. The new machine is equipped with the 2-stage type high-precision injection unit, which consists of a screw and plunger. It is extremely capable of molding micro molded parts, proposing another attractive choice for the medical and electronic industries. The NEX30Ⅳ-1EN1 machine with 30-ton (33USton) clamping force was added to their micro molding machine lineup to meet these increasing demands in the North American markets.
In Japan, NISSEI possesses 46% market share (2021 result) for the micro precision injection molding machines, which ranges from 1~19ton clamping force (1~21USton), according to the statistics among all Japanese brands. Their machines have been widely used in a variety of industries that produces micro precision parts, such as electronic parts and medical equipment.
