Following the positive results achieved with its first two Sacmi-built AVE040 high-pressure WC casting machines, installed in 2000, Caroma of Australia recently decided to implement high-pressure casting technology at its Sydney plant. The Sacmi Group supplied and started up two AVE040 open-rim WC casting machines and two AVM150 stick-on rim casting machines. Over the last few years, Caroma has achieved a position of prestige thanks to shrewd marketing strategies and the Sacmi technology, which will help ensure that Caroma retains its cost leadership position in Australia.
