Advanced System Division
Through sales of equipment and materials in the Environment, Energy Conservation and Consumer Industry sectors
The Advanced System Division is committed to creating a low-carbon society through sales of equipment and materials in sectors associated with the environment and energy conservation. These range from the semiconductor sector, including power semiconductors, LEDs and MEMS, and the battery sector, including lithium ion batteries and solar cells. The division also provides a range of equipment, systems and services in areas such as food and ingredient processing and testing.
Providing a broad array of domestic and overseas manufacturing equipment
―― Semiconductor-related (manufacturing equipment)
The market for power semiconductors, LEDs, MEMS and other high value-added semiconductor products is continuing to grow, backed by Green New Deal policies implemented by different developed countries. Here at Sojitz Machinery, we sell manufacturing machinery covering all processes, from upstream to downstream, to domestic and overseas manufacturers alike. We also sell semiconductor materials, including silicon carbide (SiC) hardware, which is attracting a great deal of attention as a next generation material for power semiconductors. We place particular focus on one overseas manufacturer, Hanmi Semiconductor, Inc. Sojitz Machinery acts as a dealer for this leading Korean semiconductor equipment manufacturer with a very large global market share to sell its products to domestic corporate customers.

Years of engagement in vehicle-mount batteries
―― Secondary battery
The automotive secondary battery market is continuing to expand amid mounting awareness of energy conservation and the environment. Sojitz Machinery provides domestic and overseas customers with secondary battery manufacturing equipment for hybrid vehicles (HVs), plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHVs), electric vehicles (EVs) and fuel cell vehicles (FCVs). Our engagement in this market dates back to the days when the market was just starting to grow in the mid-1980s. Today, we have accumulated a long track record. Now we deliver equipment mainly for the downstream process (assembly process) to carmakers and battery manufacturers. For overseas customers, we export to Chinese manufacturers for both upstream (electrode production) and downstream processes.
Contributing to food safety and security, and labor savings across a broad range of products – Food processing equipment
We sell various types of potato-related processing equipment produced by European manufacturers to large Japanese foodstuff & snack manufacturers. We also act as the agent of a leading manufacturer in Italy and offer pasta-making equipment. In response to rising public awareness concerning food safety and security, and labor savings, we are working hard to offer metal detectors, color sorting machines, sterilizers, automated systems and other similar devices. We also provide support for companies opening plants in other countries. The wide variety of equipment services at our disposal enables us to offer solutions tailored to the needs of our customers.
