SinterCast achieves production record

AFS Corporate Member SinterCast, a global supplier of process control technology for high volume production of compacted graphite iron (CGI), reported record series production in the second quarter of 2022, reaching 3.6 million Engine Equivalents and surpassing the previous quarterly record of 3.5 million Engine Equivalents set in the third quarter of 2019. 

The company stated the quarter benefitted from strong production at the Tupy foundries in Brazil and Mexico, plus the ramp-up of the new 13-litre commercial vehicle engine for the Traton group at the Scania foundry in Sweden. Ultimately, the year-to-date growth culminated in the annualized production of 3.9 million Engine Equivalents in June, which matched the all-time monthly high established in September 2019.
