Craving In-Person Classes? Check Out NADCA’s National Course Schedule for Spring 2021

It’s time to get back at it! This spring we will be holding a series of courses at our Headquarters in Arlington Heights, IL. From May 19 to June 24 NADCA will be offering the following courses.

Engineering Die Casting Dies - May 19-20 - The die casting die has four basic functions: 1. To hold the molten metal in the shape of the desired casting; 2. To provide means for the molten metal to get into the space where it is to be held in the desired shape; 3. To remove heat from the molten metal to solidify the metal; and 4. To provide for the removal of the solidified casting. The overall goal is to design a die that will produce high quality castings efficiently and that is based on sound economic principles.
Pricing: Corporate Member $600, Individual Member $690 and Non-member $800

Die Casting Defects - June 16-17 - Defective die castings are quality deviations that must be corrected to meet the quality requirements of the customer. Defects are serious issues that are usually traceable to process settings and/or metallurgical problems. The good news is that most of them are correctable through operations control and process control. The purpose of this course is to provide useful information, skill and techniques to those individuals charged with the responsibility for process settings and production of quality castings.
Pricing: Corporate Member $600, Individual Member $690 and Non-member $800

Process Control - June 23-24 - The primary purpose of this course is to show the processing engi¬neer and operating technician what type of control method is applicable to each of the die casting machine/die/process systems, how to measure the performance of each critical variable, compare actual performance to the desired and to adjust the actual performance to meet the desired. The student will find this 2015 revision of the course more definitive and focused than the previous as the machine systems portion of the previous has been split off as a separate two-day offering.
Pricing: Corporate Member $600, Individual Member $690 and Non-member $800
