A Casting Workshop Lecture “The basis of this account is notes taken verbatim by some of my former students from a Castings Workshop I gave… It records my personal views, struggling to rethink my understanding of casting metallurgy anew…” Thus, John Campbell introduces the reader to his latest work, Concise Castings: A Casting Workshop Lecture. In this (edited) transcript of his workshop, Prof. Campbell puts forth his views on a variety of casting topics, including entrainment, bifi lms and their effect on casting properties, improving casting technology, pouring systems, and the ablation casting process.
This publication is not a handbook but rather a review of material that Prof. Campbell has worked on and taught throughout his career. His passion for perfection shows in a personal presentation that is highly informative to both students and metalcasting professionals.
John Campbell is Professor Emeritus of Casting Technology at the University of Birmingham, U.K. Among his many contributions to the casting industry, Campbell is the author of Castings, 2nd
Ed., and Castings Practice: The 10 Rules of Castings.

2011 AFS Survey of Wages and
Economic Benefits The 2011 AFS Survey of Wages and Economic Benefi ts details the current status of wages and benefi ts for the metalcasting industry in the U.S. and Canada by foundry size, union status and type of metal poured. This year’s survey includes reports from 125 U.S. foundries representing 15,627 employees and nine foundries with 715 employees in Canada.
Also reported are fi ve separate breakouts based on foundry size, breakouts for union and union-free foundries, and four foundry groups based on the type of metal poured, which include steel, iron, nonferrous or a combination of these metals. Twenty-eight job classifi cations were used as the basis for the wage portion of the study.
