The book, “Aluminum Casting Technology,” has become one of the key resources for aluminum metalcasting personnel throughout North America and the world. The aluminum shape casting industry has grown considerably over the past 25 years with many expanded product applications, especially in the automotive sector. Aluminum casting usage in the military, aerospace, electronics industries, and other commercial applications also have grown as light-weighting and energy conservation have gained momentum, taking advantage of aluminum’s inherent benefits. Correspondingly, many advances have occurred in aluminum casting process science and technology during that time. This new Third Edition builds on the previous volume, but with many upgrades and additions.
The most notable changes are in the rewrite of seven existing chapters and the creation of five new chapters on: Casting Process Simulation; Solidification; Semi-Solid Mold Processes; Metal Matrix Composites; Additive Manufacturing & Rapid Prototyping.
The Aluminum Casting Technology, 3rd Edition is the best book to have on hand at your facility, your classroom or your metalcasting library. It’s designed to be not only a reference book, but also a valuable educational tool for established and new employees.
