AMC Holds Annual Technical Review T e American Metalcasting Consortium (AMC) held its


Annual Technology Review July 24-25 in Milwaukee. T e two-day event covered the latest metalcasting research


advancements and activities conducted on behalf of the De- partment of Defense by AMC partners, including the Ameri- can Foundry Society. AFS projects include the AFS Casting Alloy Data Search (CADS) and the Cast High-Integrity Alloy Mechnical Property Standards (CHAMPS) Project. Attendees, which included members of the Joint De-


fense Manufacturing Technology Panel, toured Waukesha Foundry, Waukesha, Wis., and the Wisconsin Centrifugal Division of MetalTek International, Waukesha, Wis. T e group witnessed Waukesha Foundry’s patternless molding process utilizing robotic cells to machine sand mold blanks, which was used to make P900 armor castings. T is technique is used for prototypes, low volume work and ma- chining of foam patterns in Waukesha’s Foamcast process. During the tour of MetalTek’s Wisconsin Centrifugal


site, the group saw vertical and horizontal centrifugal casting in action along with a unique melting process using AOD. Metaltek pours various alloys and metals and has extensive machining, non-destructive engineering and technical support operations.
