Demag Plastics Machinery (Ningbo) and Sumitomo (SHI) Demag in profile
Demag Plastics Machinery (Ningbo) Co., Ltd., Ningbo/China has been manufacturing high-performance injection moulding machines for the Chinese and other Asian markets since 1998. The former Demag site has been located in its own, newly built plant since 2007, after having relocated to a larger factory premises with 11,000 m² production area after achieving complete capacity utilisation. The range of injection moulding machines will in future consist of the Systec C series with 500 to 10,000 kN closing force for Asian markets.
Sumitomo (SHI) Demag Plastics Machinery GmbH, Schwaig/Germany, is one of the world's largest manufacturers of injection moulding machines for plastic processing. The Japanese/German company was formed in early 2008 by the merger of the injection moulding machine activities of Sumitomo Heavy Industries (SHI) and the Demag Plastics Group.
The global development and production network of Sumitomo Heavy Industries and Sumitomo (SHI) Demag comprises four plants in Japan, Germany and China, employing more than 3,000 people. The product range includes fully electric, hydraulic and hybrid-drive injection moulding machines in the closing force range between 180 and 20,000 kN.

Selling more than 5,000 machines every year, Sumitomo Heavy Industries with its plastics machine arm is regarded as one of the largest global manufacturers of injection moulding machines.
The Sumitomo headquarters in Chiba, Japan, manufacturers machines with small and medium closing forces. About 95% of all machines delivered have a fully electric drive concept.
The Demag headquarters in Schwaig/Germany focuses on manufacturing Systec machines as well as El-Exis hybrid high-performance and high-speed machines. In line with the increasing importance of electric drive technology for injection moulding machines, Sumitomo (SHI) Demag has expanded the former Demag plant in Wiehe/Germany into a global centre of competence for electric machines. Thanks to the production capacities created, Wiehe currently supplies electric injection moulding machines with up to 4,500 kN closing force in the IntElect series, as well as hydraulic machines in the Systec series with up to 1,200 kN closing force for the international market.
