All three purchases are firsts in the Chinese market. They are:

  • the first TF4400 Italpresse Toggle free diecasting machine in China for a Chinese customer
  • the first IPr3700 Italpresse diecasting machine in China for a Chinese customer
  • the first TF1850 Italpresse diecasting machine in China for a Chinese customer and the first Italpresse machine to be manufactured locally in China

The new machines are a strategic investment for the foundry, which already owns dozens of die-casting machines producing a range of castings for automotive, rail, yachts, industrial machinery and more.

Liu Yanling, VP and General Manager of Huicheng Foundry explains: “I’ve known Italpresse for 20 years and am very familiar and impressed with the technology, so we’re delighted to be buying our first equipment from them. We’ve been looking at Italpresse equipment as a strategic investment for some time, but it was their joining the Norican Group that sealed the deal for us. It gives us the reassurance of a large global industry group, commitment to our local market and the consistency we need to develop a long-term strategic partnership.”

With the new Italpresse Gauss equipment, Huicheng Foundry is looking to improve its competitive advantage in terms of quality and productivity, as well as expanding its capabilities for the casting of large structural parts.
