On October 16, 2016, Danko Arlington was honored to present at the Non-Ferrous Founders’ Society (NFFS) Industry Executive Conference held at the Lowes Ventana Canyon Resort in Tucson, Arizona.
As a NFFS member, Danko Arlington has greatly benefited from the society’s network of resources for metalcasters, so to share with other members its successes with additive manufacturing was a great way to ‘give back.’
All those at the conference keenly understood the challenges facing metalcasters today. The use of additive manufacturing for foundries is just one suggestion for growth in an environment of un-skilled foundry workers, rising labor and health care costs, regulations, the needs for improved quality, lower prices, and shorter lead times.
No doubt, foundries who invest in today’s technology will be in a better position to meet a growing demand for tomorrow’s casting needs.
