EMI, a leader in the design and manufacturing of foundry equipment has executed a long-term partnership agreement to provide sales, service, and spare parts for the modern molding solutions by Savelli Technologies (part of the Küttner Group). EMI will exclusively support and expand the Savelli Technologies presence in the North American market.

This unique group of companies with over 300 years of combined foundry molding productivity experience will be channeling that expertise to foundries in North America of all sizes.

This partnership will capitalize on the strong reputation that Savelli Technologies developed as an innovator of large-scale automatic green sand molding equipment and on EMI’s strength in engineering, manufacturing, and sales. In North America, this partnership will operate out of EMI’s corporate headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio.

“EMI is honored to have been selected by Savelli Technologies / Küttner. North American foundries will benefit greatly from having a local source of supply and service. In addition to manufacturing, sales and service, we will also be stocking spare parts. This will provide customers with exceptional service and spare parts management,” said Jerry Senk, President of EMI, Inc.

“This team of dedicated foundry engineers brings the best people, newest green sand molding technologies, and a dedication of excellence to our North American foundry customers – a level of product, knowledge, and service the foundry industry has never seen before,” he added.

Equipment Merchants International
Announces
Company Name Change

 

Equipment Merchants International, Inc., (EMI) announced today that it will be renamed Equipment Manufacturers International, Inc., effective immediately. The name change is part of a rebranding initiative to better align the Company’s name with its overall strategic mission to provide a wider range of in-house produced foundry equipment, including complete turnkey foundry installations.

EMI began building on this strategy with the acquisition of major foundry equipment suppliers such as Osborn, SPO, Sutter and Herman. In doing so, they established a reputation for engineering and manufacturing a broad range of equipment to make foundry production faster, better, and more reliable.

EMI’s Board and its ESOP employees unanimously made the decision to change the Company's name based on its broadening role as a foundry equipment manufacturer. "With the acquisition of several prominent OEM machine manufacturers over the years, as well as the increased production of EMI developed machines and systems, we felt now was the time to align our identity with our diverse manufacturing capabilities," said Jerry Senk, president of EMI.

The new name reflects EMI’s ability to provide a complete range of new manufactured equipment, remanufactured machines, parts and maintenance all at the highest level of service from their Cleveland, Ohio production facility.

While EMI's name is changing, its legal status, Web, physical address, contacts, and contracts with existing customers will remain the same for the smoothest transition. In addition to the new name and look, an updated tagline to communicate their new identity has been added, "Foundry Equipment…By Design".

Casting Technology For The Future – Just Ask Fall River Foundry

“I would like to share with you how pleased we are with the new EMI Molding Machine & Mold Handling System. As you are aware we have been researching new molding machines for a number of years. Upon reviewing what was available we concluded that the EMI 14x19 Molding Machine would best suit our job shop foundry needs. From concept drawing to the equipment set-up, EMI met our expectations and deadlines. The Technology and Engineering applied to this molding system is what will continue to keep Fall River Foundry producing the quality of casting our customers expect. On behalf of Fall River Foundry, we thank everyone at EMI for our “Made in the USA” molding line.”

EMI's New Matchplate Molding Machine Design

EMI Inc.'s Automatic Matchplate Molding Machine design includes an improved six-piece frame; a removable, pattern spray storage tank that is not integrated into the frame; and a centrally located HMI on a swivel, so that an operator is available to work from either side of the machine. A cope lift design was added to the design, which allows a greater variety of pattern plates, and improved guidance for the guide rods. The squeeze head is redesigned to transfer force into the machine frame, not the hopper car, and has a new, upper cope mold ejection system. These were additions to the already improved designs such as eliminating drag shift and the addition of guide rods and linear bearings in the squeeze station.

More design improvements focus on the hopper car, fillerator, rollover, board feeder, and more.
