NADCA Die Casting Awards Past and Future

Posted by Hill and Griffith Company on Sep 11, 2019 5:48:35 PM

NADCA annual Die Casting Awards will be announced at the NADCA Die Casting Congress & Tabletop October 1-3

We are looking forward to seeing some of the most complex and high quality die castings the industry has to offer at the NADCA's Die Casting Congress & Tabletop October 1-3 in Cleveland, OH. Over the past 45 years, NADCA showcased some of the best and most talented die casting companies who have contributed to the advancement of the die casting industry. The best castings involve not only the die casting product but the design and engineering. 


NADCA 2018 Zinc Die Casting Decorative Finish Winner - Wilkast

Categories in this year's competition are grouped by material and include aluminum, magnesium, zinc and other alloy families, including squeeze casting and aluminum structural die casting. Both custom and captive casters are eligible. For each category, there are four equally weighted criteria: 

  • Ingenuity of casting and/or product design
  • overall quality
  • cost savings compared to other manufacturing processes
  • the part's contribution to expanding the market for die castings

A panel of independent judges, acknowledged experts, with no ties to eligible casters, choose the winners. Below is NADCA 2018 Zinc Die Casting Decorative Finish Winner - Wilkast:
