Chapters are an extension of NADCA's education and training, and most offer selected NADCA national courses and programs locally . . . thus, expanding the technology transfer opportunities for every die caster. Chapters also offer a range of other technological and operational education programs specifically selected and tailored to the needs of die casters and suppliers in their chapter areas.

In-Plant Programs
All NADCA programs, courses and installations can be brought to the worksite for presentation. The cost in savings and scheduling advantages can be substantial!

In-House Programs
NADCA is now offering the "In-House Training Program for Operators and Technicians!" The In-House approach responds to the need of die casters to have control of the schedule, content and cost of training. It is a multi-module program that is highly cost-effective.

    Casting Marking and Identification 09/17/2019 100% bulletproof traceability is hard to achieve for Die Casting parts due to several constraints of the manufacturing process. However, in-line laser marking technology has recently proven to be able to achieve it by combining three key features: 1. In-cell marking ensure the right part is mark, no mix-up possible 2. Camera reading confirmation right after the laser marking can guarantee the part is correctly marked and readable 3. Post-process resistance of the mark ensure that it remains readable for the entire part lifetime In this webinar, we will present the performances of in-line/in-cell laser marking technologies available on the market and present the most recent results for post process resistance of the marking; including shot-blast, E-coating and powder coating.
