Sinto brings over 60 years of proven engineering expertise in the foundry industry. We have handled hundreds of design/build projects covering virtually every phase of manufacturing. Our engineering staff is perpetually striving to advance its technical capabilities by incorporating into our designs the latest state-of-the-art techniques.  By incorporating the latest technology into the Purdue’s Industry 4.0 Foundry of the Future, we hope to help drive new technologies and more competitiveness into the metal casting industry and help recruit our next generation of leaders.” –Brandon Kruse, VP Foundry.

«This project when completed, will create one of the very few smart foundries in the United States that will feature automation combined with data-driven strategies using technologies such as IoT, advanced sensors and control, and Artificial Intelligence. Besides offering our students the opportunity to engage in a true smart foundry experience, this will also bring in a few era in foundry education that would help the industry transition from traditional practices to the safer, cleaner, and more efficient smart foundry operations.” –Ragu Athinarayanan, Professor, Purdue University.

The initial planning is estimated to be completed in the first half of 2020 and should be complete by 2022.
