Tycon Alloys, Shenzhen, China, is a leading producer of high grade steel valves and pumps and one of Omega’s first customers in China, having purchased its first mixer back in 1997.
Since then, the metalcasting facility has continued to expand, and due to the current restrictive site, the company has decided to move to a new location approximately 200 km from its existing location.
The new foundry will be a state of the art building encompassing the latest environmental and sustainable technology, including a thermal reclamation plant for alkaline phenolic sand, which is believed to be the first installation of this process in China.
The plant also will have a semi-automatic fast loop molding line, automated pouring and cooling lines, and a floor molding area.
The foundry is expected to come into production by the end of this year.
