Domite Wear Technology Sees Benefits of V-Process Casting Technology
Grand Ledge, MI – April 24, 2020
Domite Wear Technology, located in Paris, Ontario, Canada, has been seeing the many benefits of their newly installed HWS Sinto V-Process System with Turntable and Shaketable Station. Domite is an ISO 9001:2015 certified corporation that has been supplying wear plates and wear liners for the mining and aggregate industry for over 30 years.

Sinto completed installation on the new equipment in quarter three of 2019. Since then, Domite has been at full force, with the first production run of ~10,000 lbs of wear plates, out of the v-line, being completed in March 2020.
Domite’s vacuum molding machine has a 1270 x 1270 x 250/250mm flask size, producing 2-4 molds per hour. Previously, their castings from the no bake line required manual cleaning, grinding and still had a rough surface finish. Now, their castings from the V-Process are more accurate with less grinding and have a very smooth surface.
“We have been able to lower the previously intensive labor and finishing costs by 75% and the end product is a beautiful casting” – Andrew Guiducci, President, Domite Wear Technology Inc.
V-PROCESS MOLDING MACHINE FEATURES:
- Elevated molding and pouring heights to allow for automatic sand collection and easy clean-up
- High quality and excellent dimensional accuracy through sand forming technique in which sand is sealed in plastic film and hardened by vacuum suction
- Excellent mold consistency and repeatability
- No pattern wear and no need for draft
- No movement of the mold wall due to high mold hardness
- No mold deformation by volatile mold sand additives
- Cooling process can be influenced by switching on and off vacuum and reducing internal stress inside of casting
- Plain, non-coated sand; no preparation or sand reclamation needed
- Eliminates outside cores and shake-out process
HWS Sinto is the only design and manufacturer of V-Process Casting Technology. The Sinto team worked side by side with Domite to test the feasibility of the process with their casting and to provide a solution that stayed within their budget.
