Building upon the success of last year's 116th Metalcasting Congress in Columbus, CastExpo will be better than ever as it brings together the Metalcasting Supply Chain for 4 days you can’t afford to miss! Sponsored solely by the American Foundry Society (AFS), CastExpo is the single largest trade show and exposition for metalcasting in the Americas. CastExpo’13 in St. Louis will offer metalcasters, suppliers, and casting buyers and designers the opportunity to connect and educate themselves on the latest and greatest metalcasting has to offer.
During its four-day run, CastExpo‘13 will deliver:
- Exposition—The technology, the castings, the oohs, the aahhs. The heart and soul of our industry is on display with more than 400 exhibitors over four days.
- Education—Every minute of every day is filled with presentations in the Metalcasting Congress technical sessions, in workshops and in the Metalcasting Theater on the exhibit floor, delivering to attendees cutting edge and practical shop-floor information on how to improve their operations. In addition, keynotes from world-renowned experts will be highlighted throughout the four day event.
- Cast in North America—A unique exhibit opportunity for metalcasters to showcase their capabilities to casting buyers and designers. To complement the exhibition, a series of Casting Design and Purchasing presentations are offered to improve the casting design and supply chain.

01.12.18: 2018 AFS/FEF Student Technology Contest
Organized by the American Foundry Society (AFS) and the Foundry Educational Foundation (FEF), the AFS/FEF Student Technology Contest is an opportunity for students to showcase their undergraduate research projects at the 122nd Metalcasting Congress (April 3¬–5, 2018) in Fort Worth, Texas.
The company, which was named Modern Casting magazine’s Metalcaster of the Year in 2017, has renovated and dedicated approximately 5,000 sq. ft of its original pattern shop (first constructed in 1945) to house the new equipment.
The 127,000 sq. ft. facility is located blocks from the company’s original foundry, which is still in production. Lodge broke ground on the new plant in the middle of 2016 and production began in November 2017.
