The Didion family has been in the foundry industry since 1875. DIDION, the Machinery Company, was founded in 1974 when Charles J. Didion, a third generation foundryman, realized the inherent pitfalls in vibratory shakeout systems and developed DIDION Rotary Processing Machinery. His numerous inventions revolutionized shakeout, reclamation,sand screens, casting cleaning/cooling, and the sand blending/cooling needs of the foundry industry.
The equipment was patented internationally and the company has grown to include over 1000 machines in 48 countries worldwide. The high efficiency design, reliability, and low maintenance requirements of every DIDION machine has turned the company into the world leader in Rotary Processing Machinery - saving customers throughout the world substantial operating costs.
