Niigata City has promoted the “Niigata Sky Project,” an activity created to support the aviation industry through a collaboration between industry, academia, and government. As a part of that, an aviation industry cluster called the Niigata Sky Component Association (NSCA) was formed.
The NSCA pamphlet can be found here :
For details on the “Niigata Sky Project,” please refer to the following website:
NSCA exhibited at Aeromart Nagoya 2017.
■Dates:September 26 (Tue) – 28 (Thu), 2017
■Venue:Nagoya Trade & Industry Center, Fukiage Hall
8 machining centers will be newly added to NSCA.

Niigata Metallikon achieved Nadcap accreditation.
In June 2017, Niigata Metallikon, one of the NSCA member companies specialized in the field of surface treatment, achieved Nadcap accreditation. The accredited surface treatment is sulfuric acid anodizing and chemical conversion coating, which is planned to go into operation by the end of the year.
Nadcap (National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program) is a global accreditation program in the aerospace industry that is habitually required from many aircraft manufacturers to their suppliers of special processes to participate in. The program aims for maintaining the quality of suppliers attending Nadcap.
Visit to the major manufacturers in the U.S.
At this visit, we received a purchase order for preproduction sample making.
NSCA participated in Japan International Aerospace Exhibition 2016.
Please stay tuned to our activity. We continue to make every effort to move forward.
■Dates:October 12 (Wed) – 15 (Sat), 2016
■Times: 9 : 30 - 17 : 30 (12 : 00 - 17 : 30 on Wed)
■Venue:Tokyo Big Sight West Exhibition Hall
■Booth:West Hall 2 W2 -012

NSCA was covered on the NHK program “Frontline of Economy”
The activities of NSCA were introduced on the NHK news.
NSCA is building an integrated manufacturing system for aircraft-related parts.
Companies that specialize in every variety of machine processing gathered in Niigata to form the aviation industry cluster, NSCA. Using their outstanding techniques, they are building an integrated manufacturing system, which includes special processing, while they strive towards manufacturing aircraft-related parts.
Member Companies of NSCA
With 80 years of history as a maker of hydraulic machines, we possess great knowledge about precision parts machining.
We have been operating on Sado Island for 45 years, working on metal precision parts machining with the latest facilities.
Since our founding in 1950, we have specialized in metal surface processing and contributed to the world of manufacturing.
In 1983, we brought innovation to the field of precision sheet-metal processing by installing one of the earliest laser processors in Japan.
For more than 40 years, we have been refining our techniques for the heat treatment of heavy-industry parts, such as machine tools and construction equipment manufacturing, which are core industries in Japan.
Precision Sheet-Metal Processing, Assembly
For nearly 30 years, we have been producing sheet-metal parts and cutting parts for aircraft seats.
For more than 40 years, we have been conducting non-destructive inspections on everything from all kinds of structures and chemical plants, down to small objects.
Facilitation of the Joint Acceptance of Orders at NSCA
With Niigata City Aerospace Parts and Equipment Factory as the core, we provide competitive parts processing and assembly by assigning each step of manufacturing- processing, machining, and assembly- to the member company that specializes in it.
In the future, with support from local companies, we are aiming to construct a complete integral production system for aircraft parts, and establish NSCA as a supplier of aircraft parts.
By nurturing human resources to include production managers, engineers specializing in aircrafts, engineers who have sufficient language skills to acquire Nadcap, as well as a sales force—we will establish trading relationships with overseas aircraft-related companies.
