SinterCast Mini-System 3000 to be installed at commercial vehicle foundry
Product development of Compacted Graphite Iron cylinder blocks and heads
Third SinterCast installation in Japan and seventeenth installation in Asia
Stockholm - A leading Japanese cast iron foundry, specialising in the production of engine components for commercial vehicle and industrial vehicle applications, has ordered a SinterCast process control installation to enable independent Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI) product development. At the request of the foundry and the OEM, the details of the installation and product development must remain confidential. Under the terms of the agreement, SinterCast will install a Mini-System 3000 and ancillary hardware, and provide engineering support. With planned installation during the first quarter of 2015, the Mini-System 3000 will enable the foundry and the end-user OEM to accelerate the ongoing development of CGI cylinder blocks and heads for on-road commercial vehicle and off-road industrial vehicle applications.
"This is a particularly rewarding installation for SinterCast. We have actively supported the CGI development activities of the foundry and the OEM for many years, and we have enjoyed good relationships on the operational and managerial levels. We are pleased that this support and confidence has led to a new installation and has established our partner as the SinterCast-CGI leader in Japan for commercial vehicle engine development" said Dr Steve Dawson, President & CEO of SinterCast. "This latest installation marks our third installation in Japan and our seventeenth installation in Asia, broadening our presence and brand awareness, and increasing our opportunity to support the future CGI needs of the important Asian market."
