2020 AFS Virtual Manufacturing Day

Discover the modern backbone of the metalcasting industry with the American Foundry Society! From submarines to kitchenware to rocket ships, metal castings are everywhere under the sea, on land, and above us. On Sept. 28-Oct. 2, AFS will take you on an exciting behind-the-scenes look at how metalcasting -- a highly technical process with ancient roots -- shapes the world around us.

Join us at AFSinc.org or follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for #MFGDay20 content! #MFGatAFS #makerswanted #foundryfamily

Host Your Own Manufacturing Day

Are you passionate about spreading the positive message of metalcasting? Manufacturing Day is your chance to open your doors to the public and educate on the importance of metalcasting. It’s also your opportunity to demonstrate to younger workers that metalcasting can be a great career. For many manufacturers, Manufacturing Day 2020 will look different than in past years. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, some in-person events may be postponed, modified, or transformed into online events. Whether you're holding a traditional plant tour, or hosting a virtual Manufacturing Day celebration, AFS has resources to support the success of these Corporate Member events.

Manufacturing Day is a great platform to remind your community that you are providing important jobs. You can even invite members of your local media to gain publicity for your business. Above all, the most important detail to remember is that Manufacturing Day is fun for you, students, and your community.

AFS has put together the following links to help you put together your own Manufacturing Day:
