Metalcasting Industry Research


AFS directly funds research projects from allocation of a portion of the annual dues paid by AFS Corporate Membership. In addition, AFS is involved in several research partnerships funded through government funding and industry contributions and other means. Support of research is critical for North America to maintain a strong, vibrant, healthy and continually advancing metalcasting industry. AFS participates in these projects by securing industry partners and providing technical management and oversight.

Current research funding partnerships include:
  • Advanced Casting Research Center (ACRC), which is part of the Metal Processing Institute (MPI) at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI)

  • US Department of Defense (DOD), Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), Castings Solutions for Readiness (CSR) Program and Innovative Casting Technology (ICT) Program, both funded through the American Metalcasting Consortium (AMC)
