Exhibit Space for 2017 Metalcasting Congress on Pace to Sell Out Exhibit sales are on pace to sell out


for the American Foundry Society’s (AFS) 121st Metalcasting Congress and Cast in North America held April 25-27 in Milwaukee. Exhibitors are encouraged to secure exhibit space as nearly 75% is sold. The Metalcasting Congress is


the largest annual trade show for the metalcasting industry supply chain, bringing together suppliers, metalcasters and OEMs to meet face to face with peers, custom- ers, partners and innovators. As part of Metalcasting Congress, Cast in North America consists of


educational sessions and exhibit floor space specifically targeted to buyers and designers of cast metal components. Booth opportunities for Con-


gress include a basic furniture package, carpet and electric, for both 10 x 10-ft. and 10 x 20-ft. space offerings. In addition to the booth space, exhibitors will receive a company profile listing in the of- ficial program and on the Congress website, a copy of the registered attendance file for post-show mar- keting and two full Congress and Cast in North America registra- tions for booth personnel. For more information on exhibit- ing or to reserve a booth, visit www. metalcastingcongress.org or contact Diane Waligurski at 800-537-4237 or exhibits@metalcastingcongress.org.

cast the Liberty Bell and Big Ben. Te Economist, a well-known and re- spected magazine that publishes every week, has an obituary of a person in the world they think makes a differ- ence and wrote about the closure of Whitechapel. Tis is the first time I have seen them name a manufacturing plant in the “obituary.” As a long-time foundryman, joining International Nickel in 1949 after the patents on ductile iron were granted, I wonder if ductile iron (if the metal used in 1420 was cast iron) would have solved the Bell’s cracking problem? Most bells are made of non- ferrous alloys.


Keep up the good work. Sincerely, Robert e. Savage, Sc. D.
