Dicastal North America, a manufacturer of aluminum alloy wheels and division of CiTic Dicastal Co. Ltd. of Qinhuangdao, China has selected viastore to supply and install an automated conveyor solution for the company’s new production facility in Michigan, which will begin operation this year. The system transports the wheels from casting through machining and painting, to final inspection, before they are shipped to OEMs such as automakers and retailers. The conveyors are specially designed so that the wheels, which are polished as part of the manufacturing process, can be carefully transported to avoid causing scratches or other damage.

Dicastal selected viastore because the intralogistics specialist developed a solution that was clearly smarter than those produced by competitors and saved the company’s upfront capital costs. “viastore was able to design a system for us that can cope with our anticipated future growth,” says Bernie Polzin, President of Dicastal.
