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.

Castings need to be received by June 17.

YOUR OFFICIAL ENTRY TO THE 2019 DIE CASTING COMPETITION BEGINS HERE.
To be a winner in today’s economy, you must meet — and even exceed — expectations. In a competitive global market, customers take notice of the best. The North American Die Casting Association (NADCA) knows that competition improves the competitor. With its annual Die Casting Competition, it recognizes, rewards and publicizes the outstanding casting designs of the year. Each entry is judged on its design, quality, cost savings, ingenuity, innovation and industry-changing potential.

Winners will be featured in national industry magazines including Die Casting Engineer and will also be displayed at the 2019 Die Casting Congress & Tabletop in Cleveland, OH in October. Entering and winning is one of the best ways to gain visibility with leading decision-makers. How can you afford not to compete?

OFFICIAL ENTRY RULES
Any number of castings may be entered. Send a separate entry form for each casting or assembly of castings. As-cast part samples are REQUIRED with each entry form. The metal surface cannot be improved or concealed by tumbling, shot blasting, coating or other surface treatments. NADCA encourages sending secondary processed samples, but only in addition to the as-cast parts.

All castings submitted for the competition MUST have approval in writing from the customer stating their permission to enter their die cast part in the competition. Entrants may request that certain information, such as customer names, be withheld from public use in exhibitions, magazine articles and other publications.

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.

The competition is open to die castings in these categories:
Aluminum
• Aluminum under 1 pound
• Aluminum 1-to-10 pounds
• Aluminum over 10 pounds
• Aluminum structural/high integrity (squeeze, semi-solid, high vacuum)
• Aluminum any size with decorative finish

Magnesium
• Magnesium under .5 pound
• Magnesium over .5 pounds

Zinc
• Zinc under 6 oz./non-electroplated
• Zinc over 6oz./non-electroplated
