Aiming for seamless transfer for Matchblomatic equipment, service
Roberts Sinto Corp., Lansing, MI, has acquired the assets of the Matchblomatic line of automatic molding machinery from Simpson Technologies. The sale is effective April 1, according to Roberts Sinto. No purchase price has been reported. The Matchblomatic is a line of automatic matchplate molding machines manufactured by Simpson’s Beardsley & Piper L.L.C. subsidiary, for producing green sand molds. Roberts Sinto states that the new product fits well with its current portfolio of molding machines, which include flaskless blow and aeration fill technology systems. In addition to new machinery, Roberts will supply parts and service to foundries that currently own and operate Matchblomatic equipment. Simpson also is selling its inventory of spare parts, drawings, manuals, and other technical data to Roberts Sinto, along with the service histories of installed machines. “The goal is to have a nearly seamless transfer of responsibility between Simpson and Roberts,” Roberts Sinto stated.
