Nederman will supply three foundries in China and Thailand, owned by the Japanese company Aisin Takaoka, with comprehensive solutions for extraction and filtration.
The order consists of a combination of solutions at three different plants, one in China and two in Thailand. The foundries in question produce components for the automotive industry and Aisin Takaoka is both expanding its capacity with new casting lines and upgrading existing lines.
The solutions include extraction and filtration at the induction furnace, shake out, shot blasting and fettling. Nederman also delivers solutions for efficient sand plant management and active carbon filters for reducing odours. Nederman extraction and filtration solutions ensure a clean and healthy work environment throughout the foundry process and facilitate efficient recycling of foundry sand.
“The order from Aisin Takaoka further confirms our leading position and competitive advantage in industrial air filtration. Our strong presence in Asia gives us the ability to coordinate projects and focus resources across borders, thereby providing our customers with optimal service. This is a repeat order and we are honoured that Aisin Takaoka has decided to give us continued confidence”, says Sven Kristensson, CEO Nederman.
Aisin Takaoka Co., Ltd is a Japanese company focusing on iron and aluminium casting, machining and metal-forming operations mainly for automotive components. The company also manufactures and sells audio products. The company was founded in 1960 and in 2011 had a turnover on consolidated base of about 194 billion yen.
The filter equipment will be produced at Nederman’s plant in Suzhou, China, and the installation will be project managed from Nederman’s technical departments in Bangkok and Suzhou respectively. Installation and commissioning will be on-going from the 3d quarter 2012 and be completed during the 1st quarter 2013.
