Shiloh Awarded DOE Grant Shiloh Industries, Inc. (Valley


City, Ohio), a supplier of lightweight- ing, noise and vibration solutions, has been awarded funding from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) HPC4Mfg program to accelerate the development of innovative energy ef- fi cient casting methods. For the project, “Development of a


Transformational Micro-Cooling Tech- nology for High-Pressure Die Casting using High-Performance Computing,” Shiloh will work with Oak Ridge Na- tional Laboratory to accurately model the detail boiling in casting cooling channels. T e ability to model critical variables such as uniform temperature distribution, various mechanical prop- erties and heat transfer related defects will have a major impact on energy management and effi ciency. “By incorporating high performance


computing into our analytical processes we will be able to accurately model large sections of the cooling channels. T e data will be used in our tool simulations to create dies that will operate with lower energy costs and shorter cycles, reduc- ing waste and rejected parts,” said Alex Reikher, technical fellow, research and development, Shiloh Industries. T e High Performance Computing for Manufacturing (HPC4Mfg) Pro-


J&L Precision Castings Unveils Safety Program


J&L Precision Castings and J&L


Fiber Services (Waukesha, Wisconsin) unveiled their new Behavior Based Safety Training Program. Behavior Based Safety Training is a


“process that creates a safety partnership between management and employees that continually focuses people’s atten- tions and actions on theirs, and others, daily safety behavior.” T e release says “these programs focus on what people do, analyzes why they do it, and then applies a research-supported interven- tion strategy to improve what people do,” while involving all employees. T e program is inspired by other suc-


cessful programs from companies across the country. 

gram was established in March 2015 to create an ecosystem that allows experts at DOE’s national laboratories to work directly with manufactur- ing industry members. T e program teaches manufacturers how to adopt or


advance their use of high performance computing (HPC) to address manu- facturing challenges with a goal of increasing energy effi ciency, reducing environmental impacts, and advancing clean energy technologies. 
