[Bridgnorth and Stockholm, 8 June 2021] – A leading Asian cast iron foundry group, specialising in the production of engine components for industrial power applications, will install the SinterCast process control technology to enable independent Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI) product development. The order is part of a comprehensive technology supply agreement between the OEM and Grainger & Worrall, the UK-based global leader for product development and rapid prototyping. Under the terms of the agreement between the undisclosed OEM and Grainger & Worrall, SinterCast will serve as a Tier II supplier to provide CGI product development capability, including the installation of a Mini-System 4000 and wirefeeder at the OEM’s purpose-built rapid prototyping facility. SinterCast will also provide technical support to establish a robust CGI process conforming to the ISO 16112 international standard for Compacted Graphite Iron. The Mini-System 4000 is planned to be commissioned during the first half of 2021.
“After working with SinterCast on more than one hundred CGI product development projects in our UK production facility over the last 15 years, we are pleased to have enlisted their expertise to supply the CGI process control technology for this new technology partnership” said Edward Grainger, Executive Director of Grainger & Worrall. “Our scope of supply for the project includes ferrous and non-ferrous engine components for passenger vehicle, commercial vehicle and industrial power applications. With this scope, it was imperative to include CGI capability, and SinterCast was our natural choice as the CGI technology provider”.
“Currently accounting for approximately 5% of our total production, the off-road industrial power market is both an important contributor and an important growth opportunity for SinterCast” said Dr. Steve Dawson, President & CEO of SinterCast. “The commitment marks our twenty-second installation in Asia. We are pleased that our relationship with Grainger & Worrall, and our longstanding support of CGI development in Asia, has led to the Grainger decision to promote and include our technology in their growing international business activities”.
