Danko Arlington assisted the American Metal Casting Consortium (AMC) by providing class room training and a foundry tour on July 25th, 2006 for selected employees from the Defense Supply Center in Richmond, Virginia.
Mr. John Danko, the company’s President, provided the group a broad overview of metal casting and the processes used at the plant. He also shared the little-known history of the Liberty Bell – one of the most famous government casting purchases, to illustrate the problems that can arise when buyers purchase castings. After the Power Point presentation, the DSCR personnel had a chance to witness the principles of pattern making, casting, and CNC machining in-action.
AMC’s mission is to provide the Department of Defense with cost-savings and supply chain solutions for weapon system parts. The consortium hosts a variety of seminars and tours throughout the year to fulfill its valuable mission.
