Impro Industries to install SinterCast technology in new greenfield foundry in Mexico

16:00 / 6 April 2021 SinterCast Press release

  • System 4000 to be installed at Impro Industries foundry in Mexico
  • Series production of industrial power engine components for the North American market
  • New USMCA production capacity for heavy-duty and industrial power engine components

[Stockholm, 6 April 2021] – Following five years of successful SinterCast-CGI series production at the Impro foundry in Yixing, China, Impro Industries has ordered a SinterCast System 4000 installation for its new foundry in San Luis Potosí, Mexico. Under the terms of the agreement, SinterCast will supply a fully automated System 4000 process control system and will provide engineering support to establish a robust CGI series production process. As one of the world’s leading foundry groups for the production of complex heavy-duty and industrial power engine components for on-road and off-road applications, the greenfield facility brings 60,000 tonnes per year of new production capacity to the Americas. The System 4000 will be installed during the third quarter of 2021, with series production beginning before year-end.

“The Impro installation strengthens our dominance in the Americas, where every major cylinder block and head foundry in North and South America is a SinterCast licensee. We are pleased that our support of the Impro CGI production in China over the last five years has led to this repeat business” said Dr Steve Dawson, President & CEO of SinterCast. “With the start of series production in 2021, the initial CGI volume will be a transfer of North American components from the Impro foundry in China, establishing an immediate running reference as Impro makes its new capacity available to serve the growing demand for CGI in the on-road and industrial power sectors.”
