SinterCast technology features at North American International Auto Show

* Ford confirms first high volume CGI petrol engine for F150 * Ram 1500 with CGI diesel engine to begin sales in February * Thirteen vehicles on display with "SinterCast-inside" [Detroit, 14 January 2014] - The unveiling of the 2015 Ford F150 pick-up truck, North America's best-selling vehicle for the last 37 years, included the introduction of a new 2.7 litre EcoBoost(®) V6 petrol engine, becoming the smallest engine in the pick-up truck sector while still providing the power of a mid-range V8.  The introduction demonstrates the downsizing capabilities of CGI and confirms the first-ever high volume application of Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI) for a gasoline engine cylinder block, following SinterCast's announcement of the gasoline breakthrough at the 2012 Annual General Meeting of the shareholders.  The auto show also featured the Ram 1500 pick-up with a 3.0 litre V6 diesel engine based on a SinterCast-CGI cylinder block and bedplate.  After being awarded Motor Trend's Truck of the Year award and receiving a coveted Wards 10 Best Engines award in December, the diesel Ram is poised to begin showroom sales in February.  The Ford and Ram successes give SinterCast its long sought breakthrough in the pick-up sector, providing a presence for SinterCast- CGI in two of North America's three top-selling vehicles. "January in Detroit is always important for industry insiders and enthusiasts, but this year is more special for SinterCast" said Dr. Steve Dawson, President & CEO of SinterCast.  "Walking through the halls, I count thirteen different vehicles with "SinterCast-inside", and even more positive feedback from OEM partners who appreciate the contributions that SinterCast has made."
