Hoyt Memorial Lecture The Power of and Need for Research in Metalcasting (17-148)

Doug Trinowski, HA International LLC (Westmont, Illinois)

Past metalcasting research has led to measurable improvements in the industry. It focuses on the need for continued research as supported by AFS, along with several examples of critical needs and challenges in the industry that can only be resolved through organized research. This lecture will compare and contrast how research is conducted in other countries, primarily the European Union. Finally, the need for improving the technical transfer process, taking fundamental research and commercializing it to improve the competitiveness and sustainability of the North American metalcasting community will be discussed.
