I am looking for feedback on vertical IMM manufacturers. I would prefer to hear pros and cons from personal experience with the equipment. Any assistance or feedback is appreciated. Thanks

Shane,
We run only vertical presses. We have experience with Niigata, Cincy, & Nissei. Are you asking for a comparison of one brand vs. another, or a comparison of molding in a vertical press vs. in a horizontal?

Hi Mike, I am looking for info on user interface, maintenance, customer service and parts for vertical IMM vendors. We currently have 6 Vandorn's and we need to increase capacity in the vertical machines. Comparing the different brands that you have, which is favored and why?
Thanks, Shane

Shane,

You should talk to my Operations Manager, he knows more than I do. His name is Jerry Campos. Send him an email at jerryc@knobsource.com. Mention my name, Mike O'Connor. I hope we can help.

I was reading through the forums and wanted to throw out that we manufacture vertical molding machines at Wittmann Battenfeld.

sorry I have edited this post since I now know we have been in contact with your group last week.  Thanks
