With 75% higher tensile strength, 45% higher stiffness and double the fatigue strength, CGI enables design engineers to reduce weight and to increase the performance of engine components.
With series production in 14 countries on four continents, the proven SinterCast measure-and-correct process control technology ensures the reliable high volume production of CGI.
CGI cylinder blocks and heads contribute to weight reduction, engine downsizing and power-up while providing improved durability, reduced noise and reduced CO2 emissions.
The SinterCast Ladle Tracker® and SinterCast Cast Tracker® provide complete traceability of the casting process, preventing out-of-spec castings and providing new insight for process optimisation.
A new Ask the President question has been posted regarding the cylinder block and cylinder head of the new FAW 16L engine.
New Scania Foundry celebrates First Iron
In the construction of every new foundry, one of the most significant milestones is “first iron” – the day on which the first batch of iron is melted and tapped. With an annual capacity of 90,000 tonnes of Compacted Graphite Iron per year, the new Scania foundry in Sweden has released a video to introduce the foundry and to share the first iron milestone. Following the start of the new foundry development in 2017, the first SinterCast-CGI treatment was successfully conducted on 2 February, providing three green bars for on-target CGI from the very first ladle!
