St Patrick’s Day is celebrated in the USA on March 17 in 2019. St Patrick’s Day is not a legal holiday in the United States. This day widely recognized and observed throughout the country as a celebration of Irish and Irish-American culture. Many celebrations include the prominent display of the color green, eating and drinking Irish foods, religious observances and services, and numerous parades. The holiday has been celebrated in North America since the late 18th century.
St Patrick

While St. Patrick’s Day is a fun observance filled with leprechauns, rainbows and pots of gold. It is a day to enjoy the differing heritages we observe in America. We want to wish you a happy day on the 17th of March.

NADCA Die Casting Congress West, Date: March 7, 2019, Location: 5757 Telegraph Road, Commerce, CA 90040

The NADCA West Coast 2019 Congress will feature technology highlights from our Congress in Indianapolis, last fall. The event begin with a breakfast followed by a full day of presentations. Presentations to include:

State of the Industry
Presented by Beau Glim, North American Die Casting Association
An update on the current state of the die casting industry.

On Demand Melting
Presented by Charles Monroe, University of Alabama at Birmingham
A look at research into induction melting technology for the die casting process. Such technology has the potential to revolutionize the die casting process by melting only the metal needed to make one shot at a time. This eliminates the energy needed to hold the metal in a liquid state, reduces the chance for contamination of the metal, and provides flexibility to use different alloys. On Demand Melting technology is also being leveraged to research the process of die casting titanium alloys.

Mechanical Properties of Modern Die Castings
Presented by Paul Brancaleon, North American Die Casting Association
NADCA has published data for die casting properties based on typical values taken from tensile bars cut from castings that had the skin removed. This provides property from data that is not always in line with castings made in industry. Current research is collecting more accurate data on different alloys and thicknesses of aluminum die castings.

Advanced Core Design & Manufacturing / Quality Control Technology
Presented by Carl Soderhjelm, Worcester Polytechnic Institute
Advancements in technology are improving the die casting process and the way die castings are inspected. Additive manufacturing allows die casters a way to create conformal cooling channels in cores that previously had insufficient cooling. Further research is being conducted to identify the process and design parameters for additively manufactured cores. Die casting inspection also benefits from technology improvement. One technology that is seeing more use in the die casting industry is computed tomography (CT) scanning. This technology can more accurately detect porosity inside the casting.

Testing of Die Lubricants
Presented by Charles Monroe, University of Alabama at Birmingham
Die lubricants are necessary for the die casting process. They prevent the molten metal from soldering to the die, minimize ejection force, and locally cool the die. But what distinguishes one lubricant from another? Research has been performed to create laboratory tests that can identify characteristics of different lubricants.

Machine Learning in Die Casting
Presented by Beau Glim, North American Die Casting Association
The die casting process is full of data and as the process becomes more automated the data becomes easier to collect. A human, looking at a spreadsheet, can only analyze so much data. To fully understand all of the interacting variables in the die casting process machine learning needs to be utilized.

The cost for each event is just $50 for NADCA Members and $75 for Non-Members (note that registration includes access to breakfast and lunch). In addition, if you will be sending 5 or more people we are offering special pricing.

North American Die Casting Suppliers and American Foundry Suppliers serving California casting companies meet once a year. If you are a vendor or supplier, you can save $200 on a display table if you register before February 28th. If you want to visit for dinner only, you can save $20 on dinner tickets if you buy before the 28th. Join us at Rio Hondo Golf and Event Center (Downey) on Thursday, March 7, 2019 as NADCA Chapter 30 and the American Foundry Society Southern California Chapter co-host the metal casting industry’s annual Vendor’s Night.

NADCA
CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

(https://californiametalscoalition.formstack.com/forms/vendorsnight)

Every year, California’s two largest metal casting chapters come together to recognize the leading vendors to our industry. Participants enjoy an exciting evening of food, raffle prizes, awards and vendor displays. Visit tables from the industry’s top vendors and see their latest products and services. Our suppliers give away lots of free gifts if you visit their tables. Meet several new suppliers and your competitors.

The event draws dozens of vendors and over 125 attendees from foundries and die casters across California. Vendor’s Night also serves as NADCA Chapter 30’s annual meeting, where the organization elects its board members and bestows the Distinguished Service Award on a leading individual from the die casting industry.

Register today and we will see you then!
