China’s Jianhua Mould Technology has started operation of a fully automatic resin sand casting line.

According to Jianhua, the new production line has tripled capacity and is more automatic, flexible and has improved quality compared to the traditional manual grey sand casting process. The company stated it was Asia’s first such production line.

The company is based in Changshu City near Shanghai, and had the support of a European equipment supplier when it established its mould casting facility in 2014.

Jianhua Mould is a former government owned company that was founded in 1976 and privatised in 1997, under the founder & senior engineer Mr. Ma Jianhua.

Under his leadership the company has entered the global market. Its main products are glass containers and tableware moulds.
