Since 1962 F.lli Mazzon S.p.A. has been a reliable partner in more than 30 countries as for no-bake systems (furanic, phenolic, alkyd and polyurethane), cold-box and hot-box binders, insulating refractory coatings in alcohol and water, additives, glues, releasing agents and many other chemicals.
F.lli Mazzon has been operating since 1997 with a certified quality system based on UNI EN ISO 9001:2008 rules. In 2012 our safety system was certified according to OHSAS 18001:2007 rules and in 2015 the company implemented ISO 14001 environmental certification.
F.lli Mazzon has recently been equipped with brand new chemical reactors: the company is now able to produce higher quality resins at competitive prices in shorter times. Continuous improvement of plants and equipment, such as our huge investment for the reactor, are constantly planned in order to cope with a competitive and demanding global market.
The CLP Regulation (EC) n. 1272/2008 entered into force affecting foundry binders too. F.lli Mazzon S.p.A. is already facing this change since we can already supply Cold Box resins (Leganol HD and HI series) and No Bake resins (Ecofur 5000 and 6000 series) with a low formaldehyde content: < 0,1%, which means they are exempt from labelling rules, and a free furfuryl alcohol content < 40%, which is to be considered as not toxic

Foundequip is a leading supplier in the study and construction of equipment and machines for green-sand foundries. Thanks to its collaborators and its qualified and dynamic staff, it is always in evolution to satisfy clients ‘needs and to offer them a specialist assistance.
The technology used, the know-how, assimilated with a long experience maturated directly in situ, and the cooperation with specialized companies, allow to Foundequip to offer to the clients a customized and high quality product.
Passion, innovation and technology are the characteristics that made Foundequip so competitive in worldwide markets.
Foundequip’s moulding lines are realized for the production of castings in steel, cast iron, aluminium and bronze.
These installations are projected and produced in base of the requests of the Client. They could be in different sizes and for different types of flasks, all according to the Clients’ needs and also considering the dimensions of the place where they will be installed.
The heart of moulding lines is the moulding machine. Foundequip can offer to clients different types of moulding machine such as Multipistons moulding machine, “Silent Flex” moulding machine, FastLoop or Shot-squeeze moulding machine.
The more appropriate solution is suggested according to the Client’s type of production and it can be a stand-alone machine or installed into a moulding line. It can also be fully automatic or semi-automatic.
All these machines are realized to require minimum maintenance and they can guarantee a good castings surface and so reduce the moulding scraps.
Foundequip’s sand plants are studied to supply different solutions for the green sand reclamation and regeneration. The importance to have good sand allows us to develop some solutions useful to improve sand quality, and so reduce scraps and increase the surface quality of the final product.
Our technical team offers the more suitable solutions to the client considering its specific needs, both in production, both in location availability.
The heart of these installations is the green sand mixer and the systems for the sand quality control.
The mixers are realized to permit a good quality of mixing with short cycle times which can be completed with devices for sand analysis. These devices are able to guarantee a sand with the required characteristics that become also uniform and repetitive during the time.

Best known for its continuous mixer technology, UK-based Foundry Machinery & Spares Ltd specialises in the full 3D design, manufacture, installation and commissioning of No-Bake Foundry equipment. This successful family owned, and managed business currently enjoys the strongest order book ever as well as expanding sales opportunities throughout the world.
Tony Perkins has been developing equipment for the foundry industry since 1980, including the last 20 years with son, Craig. They Created Foundry Machinery & Spares Ltd (FMS) in 1999, a business that has grown exponentially in the intervening period, developing, manufacturing and selling an extensive range of No-Bake equipment for the chemically-bonded sand Foundries. The product range includes sand mixers, mould handling equipment including the TRANSTEK Rapid mould making technology (boasting 25% faster speeds than comparable fast loop systems while achieving a 60% reduction in total foot print area), core making, casting and cooling devices and reclamation equipment (mechanical and Thermal), as well as chemical storage and distribution systems.
FMS has recently updated its digital brochure making it “more accessible and usable for our representatives and customers while being available for download on our updated website”, The digit brochure is a great tool, showcasing the high-quality range as well as previously completed projects. Spare parts are a highly important part of the business, especially as equipment is exported all over the world, “it is important to us to react and support our customers quickly and effectively, to accommodate this, we have substantially increased consignment stock allowing orders to be satisfied within a matter of days” says Dan Sullivan (Sales manager).Year on year the customer base grows, 2017 has been the highest to date both domestically and internationally. The volume of recommendations and repeat business generated are further positive signs of the company’s position in the no-bake equipment marketplace.
“The last few years have witnessed a number of important changes to the sand mixing technology at many foundries, especially with respect to process control” Craig Perkins suggests. In particular, this has involved the increased adoption of greater chemical pumping accuracy with respect to dosing, temperature blending and box filling, as well as the accurate logging of moulding boxes etc.
“Customers are investing increasingly in the latest technology to improve production efficiencies and calling upon FMS to assist with the realisation of these efforts.” In many instances, foundries approach the UK based supplier for solutions to specific materials handling issues, a design process which often results in the involvement of our 3D design team creating models to simulate the operating procedure and benefits of the proposed solution. In other cases, FMS has devised improvements to conventional sand handling procedures, based on long-term experience in the industry. “spending so much time on site, we have the opportunity to observe equipment in operation, which in turn stimulates the creation of process efficiency improvements and ideas for financial savings.” This has included temperature blending innovation which provides savings in chemicals, with short payback times.
FMS is constantly striving to improve and innovative with leading technology to its production portfolio be it via research and development or quality contacts. A more recent example of this would be the partnership between FMS and TRANSTEK, an experienced company who specialise in Mould handling, TRANSTEK came up with an innovative design for mould production with their RAPID. The RAPID moulding line is a vertical pattern loop system. This brings the advantage of very small foot-print area. Furthermore, since the elevators can store 2 bolsters at the same time, the length of the system is reduced by the length of one station. The foot print area saving is up to 60% when compared to any horizontal loop system. RAPID vertical loop provides about 20-30 seconds faster cycle times than any conventional loop systems especially with short filling time systems, thanks to its continuous elevators. They operate in one direction only so that the precious return and eject-reload transfer times are saved.
FMS holds the worldwide rights to Transtek RAPID system, with a number of units working today and more in production, they know the RAPID technology will be the perfect solution for many Foundries requirements.
The provision of turnkey projects is an increasingly important part of the FMS service, especially for those clients who prefer equipment to be fully designed, built, delivered, installed and commissioned as a complete package. In many instances this also includes for the provisions of an onsite support and training presence for the efficient use of the latest No-bake technology. This turnkey approach has been adopted in a number of recent projects, one that stands out is a full thermal reclamation plant for a very well-respected Aluminium Foundry in France. FMS were able to improve the design of their thermal reclamation unit adding many process benefits while delivery a 100% turnkey installation.
