OCC GmbH Presence at the Metal+Metallurgy China 2014 Exhibition
OCC GmbH has participated from 19 to 22 of May 2014 on the exhibition “Metal+Metallurgy China 2014” where the products for CGI and SG process control were presented to potential new customer. The success of this participation was measured by the high number of visitor that consulted OCC in the search for a robust and efficient process control system, proving that there is a big market in China where OCC can grow. It was also an opportunity to meet already established OCC customer, as presented in the picture bellow.
OCC GmbH is the top preference for CGI technology at Weichai Power Co.Ltd.
Weichai Power Co.Ltd., recently closed another deal with OCC GmbH for the installation of a new CGI Process Premium system for the Casting Centre foundry in WeiFang (P.R. China). The new system will be installed and commissioned during summer 2014.
This is the 3rd CGI-Process Premium system acquired by Weichai Power Group to OCC, representing trust and recognition of the OCC technology for the production of CGI castings.
OCC GmbH enhances customer support in the Chinese market
Following OCC’s recent growth in the Chinese market and aiming to provide always the best customer support, OCC will enhance its permanent presence in the local market. The local customer support services will be assured by two young Chinese engineers who have been trained at the OCC headquarters in Germany.
Miss Zhou Qin Yan will be responsible for logistics, installation and technical service and Mr. Nie Xu will be responsible for Metallurgy and foundry technology.
CGI Process Premium System installation at the Casting Centre foundry from Weichai Power Group in the city of Weifang (P.R. China)
Following the cooperation in the production of CGI castings started in 2008, aided by thermal analysis technic, OCC successfully completed the installation of the first complete CGI Process Premium system for the Weichai Power Group at the Casting Centre located in the city of Weifang (P.R.China) in March of 2013. The installation of this “turn-key” project was accomplished within one week, as a result of the good cooperation between both Weichai and OCC teams.
The start of the series production using the installed system is planned to start during summer of 2013.
Installation of the 2nd CGI Process Premium System at Weichai Power
In the summer of 2013 the installation of the 2nd CGI Process-Premium System for the Weichai Power group (3rd complete CGI Process-Premium System from OCC in China) will be performed by OCC at the Binhai foundry.
Sinotruk – Jinan
After the successful conclusions of the production test-series with our CGI-Process-Premium-System at Sinotruk in Jinan, the project will enter in the production phase at the beginning of 2013. The venture that results from the cooperation between MAN and Sinotruk has a plan production of 22.000t of CGI per year. The CGI-Process-Premium-System also includes one Micr-O-Phase image analysis system and the automatic microscope iScope for the metallographic quality control to accompany the series-production.
WeiChai – Weifang
After the start of our partnership in 2008, with the implementation of a CGI-system for prototypes at WeiChai Power Co. Ltd., we are proud to announce the recent contract signing for a CGI-Process-Premium system. The system will be installed at the foundry’s Casting Centre in Weifang, where it is planned a yearly production of 90.000t of CGI. It will also use OCC’s complete WireMaster cored-wire machine, with pneumatic cover, for treatment in the pouring ladle to be used at a HWS moulding line.
FAW R&D Center - Changchun
In the search of an efficient CGI production process, the FAW Research & Development centre took the decision to rent a CGI-Process-Premium-System-Prototypes for a period of 1,5 year, for an intensive testing plan in the Prototype’s foundry in Changchun as well as their foundry in Wuxi.
