Doosan Infracore orders a second SinterCast process control system


  * SinterCast Mini-System 3000 to be installed during second quarter
  * Production of heavy-duty diesel engine for off-road applications
  * Ongoing Compacted Graphite Iron product development

[Incheon  and  Stockholm,  2 March  2015] -  Doosan  Infracore Co., Ltd, Korea's
largest manufacturer of construction equipment and diesel engines, has ordered a
second  process control  system from  the Swedish  Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI)
process   control   specialist   SinterCast.   Following  the  first  SinterCast
installation  in 2006, and successful materials research and product development
within  Doosan  Infracore,  the  new  Mini-System  3000 will  be  used  for  the
production  of  the  CGI  cylinder  block  of  a new diesel engine developed for
demanding off-road applications. Together, the two SinterCast installations will
be  used to  enable independent  CGI product  development and  series production
within Doosan Infracore. The Mini-System 3000 is expected to be installed during
the  second  quarter  of  2015, with  the  initial CGI production beginning upon
commissioning of the system.

"We  are  pleased  that  Doosan  Infracore's successful CGI product development,
together with SinterCast's commitment to the important Korean market, has led to
this  second installation.  The launch  of a  new engine, and Doosan Infracore's
investment  in  a  second  process  control  system, reinforces the global trend
toward  CGI  in  the  heavy-duty  diesel  sector  for  both on-road and off-road
applications"  said Dr.  Steve Dawson,  President &  CEO of SinterCast.  "We are
motivated  by Doosan Infracore's confidence in  our technology - repeat business
is the strongest endorsement of any technology, and one of our core objectives."

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. With 41 installations in 12 countries,
the  SinterCast technology  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 Stockholm NASDAQ
