Workshop highlights magnesium technology.

More than 40 metalcasters attended a magnesium technology workshop held Oct. 31-Nov. 1 at CANMET-MTL headquarters in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Organized by the American Foundry Society (AFS) Magnesium Div. and CANMET, the two-day workshop covered metallurgy, alloy selection, melting practices, design, casting process selection and defect analysis and control. The final clay included a casting demonstration in the CANMET laboratories.

"AFS sees a large market developing for magnesium castings." said Steve Robison, AFS technical director. "This workshop is part of the AFS efforts to prepare for this need by providing metalcasters, suppliers and design engineers with the information they need to confidently design and manufacture magnesium components."
