[Stockholm,  20 October 2011] - Following the installation of a SinterCast Mini-
System  3000 process control  system at  the Foundry  Research Institute  of FAW
Foundry  Co., Ltd.,  in early  2010, FAW Foundry  Co., Ltd  has ordered a second
Mini-System.   The order follows  the transfer of  the first Mini-System 3000 to
Wuxi  Foundry to support  ongoing CGI product  development for heavy duty diesel
engine components for FAW's Wuxi Diesel Engine Company.  As a result of positive
development  results, the FAW Foundry group  has decided to keep the Mini-System
3000 at  the Wuxi Foundry and  to install a new  Mini-System 3000 at its Foundry
Research  Institute located in Changchun,  China.  The new Mini-System 3000 will
be used to support CGI product development within the FAW Group, spanning a full
range  of  vehicle  applications,  including  passenger vehicles, light-duty and
heavy-duty   commercial   vehicles,   and  buses.   The  order  enables  FAW  to
independently   conduct  CGI  product  development,  and  makes  FAW  the  first
automobile group in the world to install two SinterCast Mini-System 3000 process
control systems.

"As  the largest automobile manufacturer in  China, with production of more than
2.5 million  vehicles per year, FAW has established itself as the Chinese market
leader  for CGI product development"  said Dr. Steve Dawson,  President & CEO of
SinterCast.   "Building on  our successful  high volume  production of Compacted
Graphite  Iron exhaust  components in  China since  2007, and the local presence
provided  by  our  offices  based  in  Shanghai  and Beijing, we look forward to
increasing  our support of the Chinese  foundry and automotive industries as one
of the key growth areas for SinterCast and CGI."
