Hunter Foundry Machinery Corporation
2222 Hammond Dr.
Schaumburg, IL, 60196

Press release date: July 7, 2014

With the invention of the first gravity-filled automated matchplate molding machine, Al Hunter single-handedly launched the foundry world into a new industrial revolution.

In 1963, mechanical engineer William “Al” Hunter created the first HMP-10 in Morton Grove, IL. The new machine streamlined laborious metal casting processes by offering foundries unimagined new production capabilities. With it, an operator could produce as many molds in one hour as most molders could produce, in an entire day, on a jolt-squeeze machine.

The following year, Mr. Hunter (a 2012 inductee into Foundry Management Technology’s “Hall Of Honor”) launched Hunter Automated Machinery Corporation. As industry demand grew, the company responded with advanced solutions such as automated mold handling equipment and coresetters.

Today known as Hunter Foundry Machinery Corporation, the company has grown its reputation during the past 50 years as the premier developer of advanced matchplate molding and mold-handling solutions for the foundry industry.

Operating from its world headquarters in Schaumburg, IL since 1968 Hunter continues to produce innovative solutions and technologies.

Sales offices in U.S., India, China, Brazil and Europe ensure its position as the world leader in matchplate molding and mold handling.
