Input into Research
Members are invited to attend committee meetings and become committee members. During these meetings, there are presentations of research project results and discussions about current as well as future research projects. The only way to become involved in the technical steering of the die casting industry is to be actively involved.
When new technology is being developed, Corporate Members are often the first to be offered a chance to host In-Plant Trials. This enables a company to get first-hand experience with new technology as well as partake in its development. Alternatively, Members can receive results of in-plant trials conducted at other plants. Examples of in-plant trials for new technologies include: die steels and coatings, casting alloys, die lubricants and application techniques, cycle time reduction techniques, heat treating of die castings, and thin wall processing.
Die Casting Congress Papers
The Die Casting Congress plays a major role in the technology transfer efforts. Members may assist in reviewing papers prior to formal acceptance which not only provides input to the authors, but also provides members with new research results prior to the congress. Members may also be involved in the congress by writing papers for presentation and publication.
Access to New Information
In addition to receiving the latest industry news via an eNewsletter weekly, Corporate Members also receive special emails alerting them to new products and breaking industry news.
