International Die Casting Design Competition 2020

In a competitive global market, customers take notice of the best. 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 acknowledged and honored during the 2020 Virtual Die Casting Congress & Tabletop. 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 2020 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 castings is July 13, 2020. Don’t hesitate!

CEP Cast Engineering Products Closing

Today, I received the sad news that another local Southern California die casting company competitor is closing. CEP (Cast Engineered Products), is closing their doors. CAST and ENGINEERED PRODUCTS was located at 1746 West 135th Street, Gardena, CA 90249-2508 Telephone Voice:310.323.8460 Sales@cepUSA.com. I have known the owner, Ismail Cuhadar over 30 years. Ismail had over 35 years of experience in the die casting and metals industries. Ismail is a graduate of The University of Southern California and holds Master of Science and Professional Engineer degrees in Mechanical and Design Engineering. I met him when he worked at El Monte Tool and Die Casting Company. Ismail then went to Modern Die Casting Company / Sunny Die Casting Company before he started CEP.

In 1994, Ismail founded CEP in Downey, CA out of Modern/Sunny. Then in 2001, he moved its operations to the larger facility in Gardena, CA to manufacture aluminum and zinc die castings, bronze and copper-nickel porous powder metal parts and other engineered products. I always enjoyed spending time with Ismail, I wish him safety, health and happiness.

2019 Die Casting Competition

Hello Die Casters,
NADCA North American Die Casters Association
The North American Die Casting Association (NADCA) holds a contest every year for the best castings. We are a month out from castings being due for the 2019 International Die Casting Competition. Based on the discussion at the technical congress earlier this year, some winners may not be up to par with what Chapter 30 die casters are doing. It would be great to get castings from Chapter 30 die casters, so the judges can see the difference.

Spread the word about the die casting competition, so those die casters can enter their castings.
Submit by June 17, 2017

The following link contains the details and at the bottom of the page is the electronic entry form.
