Metal casting Technology- Processes, DFM, Quality and Cost considerations

Date : 20 to 21 December, 2018

@ 12/5, D1 Block, MIDC Chinchwad, Pune


Several different methods such as casting, powder metallurgy, forging and machining are available to shape metals into useful products. One of the oldest process is metal casting which basically involves pouring molten metal into a mould cavity, where upon solidification it takes the shape of the cavity. Beauty of this process is, any complicated shape in any metal can be casted.

Knowledge of metal casting is very important to design engineers and casting buyers. Design engineers have to decide on the type of casting process to be adopted to manufacture the part and also to incorporate DFM requirements of casting without compromising his design intent. Buyers have to identify right foundry and negotiate with them to get competitive price. Under these circumstance, knowledge of casting processes, capability and limitations of processes, cost estimation and casting inspection will come handy. 

Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing a 2 day programme on “Metal casting technology- processes, DFM, quality and cost considerations” on 20-21 December 2018 at Pune.
