Pure Power Technologies Begins CGI Production at the Indianapolis Casting Facility

Pure Power Technologies Begins Compacted Graphite Production at Indianapolis Casting Facility

Chicago and Stockholm – (January 25, 2012)Pure Power Technologies, LLC, a Navistar Company, has begun production of Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI) cylinder blocks at its Indianapolis, Ind. casting facility. The heavy-duty CGI cylinder blocks are produced using the SinterCast process control technology.

The SinterCast System 3000 process control system has been configured at the Pure Power Technologies Indianapolis casting facility to provide SinterCast’s measure-and-correct feed forward control of the CGI production process, along with automated feedback control of the base treatment. The System 3000 also logs data from the melting, moulding and shake-out operations to provide enhanced quality control and traceability of the casting process.

The technology agreement between Pure Power Technologies and SinterCast encompasses the Pure Power Technologies casting facilities located in Indianapolis, Ind. and Waukesha, Wis. with Pure Power Technologies reserving the right to install additional SinterCast control systems on the two casting lines in Waukesha.

Together, the Pure Power Technologies casting facilities in Indianapolis and Waukesha provide capability for high volume CGI production for passenger vehicle applications and for commercial vehicle cylinder blocks and heads with engine displacements as large as 15 liters.

“Building on more than 10 years of CGI product development and production experience within Navistar, Pure Power Technologies has the experience, the facilities and the team to be a world-class provider of high quality CGI engine components to the passenger vehicle and commercial vehicle industries” said Rick Bacon, director, Pure Power Technologies Metalcastings, “We have brought the Indianapolis casting facility on-stream in record time to meet the increased demand for heavy-duty CGI blocks. We now look forward to bringing our CGI design and manufacturing experience to OEMs around the world as demand grows for CGI head and block casting technology using SinterCast process technology.”

“The commitment by Pure Power Technologies to install CGI capability further demonstrates the growing demand for CGI engine components, particularly in the commercial vehicle sector,” said Dr Steve Dawson, President & CEO, SinterCast. “The Pure Power Technologies installation provides high volume CGI cylinder block and head production capability in the U.S. market. The global footprint of Pure Power Technologies and its parent company, Navistar, improves our combined ability to support the growing demand for CGI product development and production.”
