Jag har samlat lite info om Kina utan inbördes ordning
Först lite om potentialen i Kina och den massiva tillväxten. Sintercasts VD Steve Dawson sade detta för fem år sedan:
”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.”

Diesel engine sales up 23.55 percent in July
by Xu Jun 2016-08-31
Based on the latest data from China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM), a total of 187,272 diesel engines were sold in July,
ASIMCO Group Attended the 66th IAA Commercial Vehicles Show in Hanover
including ASIMCO Shanxi’s vermicular graphite cast iron cylinder heads of 13L engines for JMC Heavy Duty Vehicle,
Förra gången de visade upp detta var den 17 maj iår i Kina och då hade de även ett block i CGI för JMCs 13 litersmotor
JMC har ett kontrakt om hävande av kopieringskydd på Ford Otosans motorer. Detta kan bli en bra språngbräda för Ford och Iveco i Kina.
Det verkar att vara en kopia av Ivecos Cursor 13.
ASIMCO är en stor aktör i Kina och att de nu har börjat använda sin Sintercastanläggning som de fick under förra året är mycket bra. Tiden mellan tester och full produktion minskar eftersom tekniken numera är så beprövad.
från den 17 maj iår.
FIAT set up a plant—NEVECO and SAIC FIAT in China which manufacture IVECO/SFH engine,daily bus and heavy truck. We can supply car ,completely engine and parts of IVECO/SFH for you.
IVECO/SFH~Cursor 9 Diesel Engine
Det vore ytterst kul om det blev Sintercast CGI i Daimler.
Då kunde Daimler sluta med sitt ”magnesium treated cast iron” i Mannheim.
JMC Heavy-duty Auto Gets Technology Support from Ford
www.chinatrucks.com: JMC announced on July 24 that they have signed JMC J19 Heavy Truck Technology Project with Ford Motor and some of their technology companies to introduce Ford technology on heavy trucks. And JMC senior management signed the agreement.
The contract means the technology relates Ford heavy truck chassis, the driving cabin and parts on design, manufacturing and services. And the contract products means JMC can produce JMC heavy trucks based on Ford heavy trucks related technology.
JMC will pay 8 million euro to Ford and JMC will also pay 485 euro to 330 euro for each chassis which is equipped with JMC heavy trucks, and JMC will pay 20 euro to 40 euro to each JMC heavy trucks using Ford driving cabin technology in terms of different sales regions.
Detta kan bli riktigt stort. Det verkar som om den topp på 13 liter i CGI som ASIMCO gjuter åt JMC är en topp till nya kinatillverkade Cursor 13 och då var även blocket som de visade upp den 17 maj i Kina till samma motor
Den större motorn Cursor 16 har redan en topp i CGI med Sintercast.
Vilken motor är det annars? JMC har avtal med :
Press Release / February 5, 2015
Ford’s China partner Jiangling has announced the joint venture plans to continue ramping up investments through 2015, and next year prioritize the finalization of a technology license contract for the JMC-branded J19 heavy truck project with Ford Motor, Ford Global Technology*, and Ford Otosan** as its single most important investment for 2016.
JMC will gain a technology license for the design, manufacture and service of Ford Otosan ”Cargo” brand heavy trucks including chassis, cab, and related parts and components.
Under the July 25, 2014 agreement, JMC will pay Ford Otosan an initial licensing fee of 8 million Euros, plus an additional 330 to 485 Euros for each chassis constructed with Ford Otosan-licensed components, and 20 to 40 Euros for each truck completed with a Ford Otosan Cargo cab.
Background: Ford joint-ventured with Jiangling Motors Corp. (JMC) in 1997 to build European Ford “Transit” full-size vans. Ford increased its stake in JMC to 31.5 percent in 2013. Located in East China’s Jiangxi Province, the JMC-Ford joint venture also builds JMC-branded SUVs, pickups, vans and light trucks (Ford also has a passenger car joint venture with Changan Automobile Co. in Chongqing).
In August 2012, the JMC-Ford joint venture acquired a small, young truckmaker called Taiyuan Changan Heavy Truck Co. Ltd. (founded in 2007) for US$42 million and renamed it JMC Heavy Duty Vehicle Co. Ltd. (JMCH).
“JMC’s acquisition represents a great opportunity to continue to expand the breadth of our business in China across vehicle segments,” said Dave Schoch, Chairman and CEO, Ford Motor China. “A strong heavy truck operation like Taiyuan will complement Ford’s existing passenger car and light commercial vehicle operations here in the world’s largest and fastest-growing vehicle market.”
“With Ford’s support, JMC will quickly introduce new products and improve Taiyuan’s (JMCH) existing truck products in order to bolster the competitiveness of Taiyuan Heavy Truck,” said Schoch. “Ford has enormous experience and world-class products and technologies, including in the heavy truck business, which can be deployed to support JMC after the acquisition.”
On April 24, 2013, JMC signed a 12-year technology license contract with Ford Otosan* to produce the latter company’s 7.3 and 9.0 liter “Ecotorq” diesel truck engines*** (JMC code-named J17) for upcoming Ford Otosan “Cargo” based heavy trucks (JMC code-named J19).
In the heavy Cargo range, Ford Otosan has been offering the 10.3-liter Fiat Powertrain Technologies (FPT) Cursor 10 engine found in Iveco trucks. Ford Otosan is now ramping up to produce the 11.1-liter Cursor 11 and 12.9-liter Cursor 13 under license in Turkey
(The Cursor 11 replaces the Cursor 10). For the JMC-Ford joint venture to find success in China’s heavy truck market, these larger engines will be essential.
JMC agreed to pay Ford Otosan an initial licensing fee of one million Euros, plus an additional 150 to 190 Euros for each Ford Otosan-based J17 engine produced. JMC agreed not to directly or indirectly design or develop a competing engine to the contractual products during the contract term.
Engine production at the JMC/Ford joint venture’s new US$82 million facility is expected to launch in the second half of 2015 and initially build up to 10,000 engines a year.
The two agreements are supposed to commence with the 2016 model year, be extended every three years and have 12-year terms.
