Off with the old and on with the new
June 8, 2016
Bibby Ste. Croix reached a milestone on June 1, 2016 when it ceased production on the Disamatic which was installed in 1977. Over the past 39 years, this sand molding machine has cast over 400 million pounds of gray cast iron. Bibby has plans to replace this older model with a new Disamatic 240-B this summer.
The engineering and maintenance teams are currently working to dismantle the old machine and to prepare the site for the new equipment. Pictured are the first and second shift team members that bid the old Disamatic a fond farewell on its last day of operation.
