  * Major  European  commercial  vehicle  OEM  orders SinterCast process control
    technology
  * SinterCast  System  3000 to  be  installed  in  captive foundry during first

[Stockholm,  11 February  2013] -  Following  successful  technical  support  of
Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI) product development, an undisclosed major European
commercial   vehicle   OEM  has  ordered  a  SinterCast  System  3000 to  enable
independent CGI series production in its captive foundry.  At the request of the
OEM,  the  details  of  the  installation  and  the  engine  applications remain
confidential.   The System 3000 process control hardware will be integrated with
a  SinterCast wirefeeder that was previously installed at the OEM foundry during
intensified  product development activities in 2012 to provide a fully automated
process control system.  The complete installation is planned to be commissioned
during the first quarter of 2013.

"SinterCast  is pleased  to have  provided technical  support to  this industry-
leading  commercial vehicle OEM for  more than ten years.   It is rewarding that
our  support has provided  the confidence for  the OEM to  decide to install the
SinterCast  technology in its  foundry, increasing the  number of foundries with
SinterCast  installations  to  29" said  Dr  Steve  Dawson,  President  & CEO of
SinterCast.   "This  new  commitment  reinforces  SinterCast's  position  as the
leading  provider  of  Compacted  Graphite  Iron  process control technology and
solutions,  and also reconfirms the irreversible  trend toward CGI for state-of-
the-art commercial vehicle diesel engines."
