Innovative Die Castings Wanted – Submit Your Entry to the International Die Casting Design Competition
NADCA

In a competitive global market, customers take notice of the best. North American Die Casters Association (NADCA) knows that competition improves the competitor. With its annual Die Casting Competition, it recognizes and rewards the outstanding casting designs of the year.

Entering and winning is one of the best ways to gain visibility with leading decision-makers. The competition is open to aluminum, magnesium, zinc die castings and other alloy families. Any number of castings may be entered. However, a separate entry form is required for each casting or assembly of castings. In addition, the metal surface cannot be improved or concealed by tumbling, shot blasting, coating or other surface treatments.

Judging is conducted by an independent panel of experts from the die casting industry, with no ties to eligible companies. The four equally weighed criteria are ingenuity of casting/product design; overall quality; cost savings; and market-expanding potential. Winning castings will be displayed during the 2016 Die Casting Congress & Tabletop in Columbus, OH and winners will be honored during the Die Casting Awards Luncheon. NADCA’s Die Casting Engineer Magazine, NADCA’s Website and the NADCA Design Website will also feature the winning castings.

This competition helps promote increased use of die castings by recognizing and publicizing outstanding designs. For more information on the 2016 International Die Casting Design Competition please visit, www.diecasting.org/castings/competition or contact Beau Glim at glim@diecasting.org. The deadline to submit your casting is July 1, 2016. Don’t hesitate (Article from NADCA, visit their website for more details)
