Metal Casting Design & Purchasing readers have cast their votes, and the first winner of the People’s Choice Casting Award goes to Compass Automotive Group, Fruitport, Mich., for its front steering knuckle. The aluminum knuckle for the Tesla Model S sedan earned more than 2,300 votes in the inaugural contest. The part, produced in the vacuum riserless casting/pressure riserless casting process, is fully hollow and represents a 25% weight savings over a solid aluminum arm. Congrats to Compass Automotive for producing our visitor’s favorite casting. The metalcaster also earned Best-In-Class recognition by our judges in the Metal Casting Design & Purchasing 2012 Casting Competition. If you haven’t had a chance yet, mosey over to our gallery of all the great castings submitted in this year’s contest.
