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.

https://diecasting.org/wcm/Die_Casting/Marketing/Casting_Competition/wcm/Die_Casting/Casting_Competition.aspx?hkey=6277637e-cfab-450b-b95a-cf3c90ed75fe

Castings need to be received by June 17.

2019 NADCA International Die Casting Competition

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
• Zinc any size with decorative finish

Other Alloy Families
• Any size, base alloy excludes Al, Mg, Zn

To enter – complete the online form below. Please send all sample castings to:

North American Die Casting Association
International Die Casting Design Competition
3250 N Arlington Heights Rd., Ste. 101 • Arlington Heights, IL 60004

All entries must be received by June 17, 2019.

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.

Die Casting Congress West – March 7, 2019
