www.chinatrucks.com: JMC Heavy Duty Vehicle Co., Ltd, a division of Jiangling Motors Corporation, Ltd, has today unveiled a new heavy duty commercial vehicle for the domestic Chinese market at the 2017 Shanghai International Automobile Exhibition. With 9.0 litre and 13.0 litre engine options, the new truck is the result of the JMC-Ford joint venture in China, leveraging Ford’s European vehicle and engine technology with JMC’s local manufacturing base and distribution network. Produced using the SinterCast process control technology at the ASIMCO International Casting Co., Ltd foundry in Shanxi, China, the 9.0 litre engine specifies CGI for both the cylinder block and head while the 13.0L engine specifies CGI for the cylinder head. The new engines provide state-of-the-art performance, durability and fuel economy in the world’s largest commercial vehicle market, while complying with Chinese CN5 emission regulations. With the start of vehicle sales at the Shanghai auto show, series production will begin shortly.

“SinterCast first became involved with the JMC CGI engine development in 2013, with the installation of a Mini-System 3000 at the JMC foundry in Nanchang, China. Following our support of the initial development, we were pleased to be chosen as the series production partner by ASIMCO, resulting in an installation of our System 3000 Plus in October 2015”, said Dr. Steve Dawson, President and CEO of SinterCast. “JMC is China’s leading producer of diesel-engined vans, light buses and light duty trucks and we are pleased that they have chosen SinterCast-CGI for their first entry into the heavy duty commercial vehicle sector. We have supported the production of Ford’s 9.0 litre cylinder block and head in Europe since 2007 and we now look forward to supporting JMC’s series production in China. The 13 litre cylinder head is a new product for us, and marks our tenth SinterCast-CGI engine in the Ford group.”

SinterCast is the world’s leading supplier of process control technology for the reliable high volume production of Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI). With at least 75% higher tensile strength, 45% higher stiffness and approximately double the fatigue strength of conventional grey cast iron and aluminium, CGI allows engine designers to improve performance, fuel economy and durability while reducing engine size, weight, noise and emissions. The SinterCast technology, with 44 installations in 13 countries, is primarily used for the production of petrol and diesel engine cylinder blocks and exhaust components for passenger vehicles, medium-duty and heavy-duty cylinder blocks and heads for commercial vehicles, and industrial power engine components for marine, rail, off-road and stationary engine applications. SinterCast’s series production components range from 2 kg to 9 tonnes, all using the same proven process control technology.  The SinterCast share is quoted on the Small Cap segment of the Nasdaq Stockholm stock exchange (Stockholmsbörsen: SINT).
