Recently, JML Industrie announced their purchase of SPACE.

SPACE, based in Italy, is internationally recognized for their design and construction of sand cooling and preparation equipment for green sand. The Italian equipment manufacturer was established in 1979 and has developed a unique methodology to achieve the highest quality sand with the lowest consumption of raw material, which is mainly Bentonite.

JML Industrie continues to invest in their infrastructure and equipment. The latest addition, is a new thermal machine which drills, mills and cuts sheet steel up to 60mm thick. The large capacity table can take sheets of 3.1m x 12m. The swivel head technology on the machine allows chamfers to be made in a single operation.

We look forward to sharing our projects using this new equipment in the future from JML France.

JML Industry 4.0 overview foundries

Despite Industry 4.0 being nearly 10 years old, few foundries have embraced the advantages of new connected technologies, in part due to the challenges with replacing existing equipment. For the majority of foundries the principal challenge is finance, followed by operational challenges such as managing new processes and retraining staff.

Due to open in October 2018, the investment in JML Italy represents another important strategic step.
