To remain competitive in the global metalcasting industry, North American foundries must adopt engineering solutions and practices that enhance casting quality, optimize production efficiency, and support a streamlined industrial supply chain.
The AFS Engineering Division advances those goals through panels, papers, plant tours, plant reviews, technology demonstrations, research, knowledge transfer and professional networking. Areas of focus include planning systems; automation and robotics; data capture, exchange and security; energy efficiency; and other plant-engineering topics that arise. Committees or task groups may be launched to address areas of concentrated focus.
