For Casting Buyers

AFS is committed to facilitating the connection between casting supplier and casting buyer, offering programs, literature and classes for designing and purchasing castings, as well as tools to match the appropriate casting supplier to your application. Use our casting alloy database and metalcasting process selector to help select the right alloy and process for your next part. Access the AFS Library, Castingpedia and our design tutorials for more information and tips on designing and buying castings. Begin your next casting supplier search with our directory of North American metalcasters.

“Every year at Metalcasting Congress Cast in North America gives metalcasters an area of the exhibition to showcase their capabilities to their customers—buyers and designers. To complement this segment of the exhibition, a buyer and designer education track will be part of the Congress with presentations on casting design and sourcing, quality, rapid prototyping, simulation and metalcasting basics.”
