    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.

    In "Casting Defects Handbook: Aluminum & Aluminum Alloys", many of the common types of casting defects encountered in the production of aluminum alloy castings are presented. These defects are categorized by production method: sand-casting, permanent mold, high pressure diecasting, low pressure, investment, plaster and lost foam, with possible causes and, in some cases, prevention techniques listed.

    Now, during March, you can get a free copy of the "Casting Defects Handbook: Aluminum & Aluminum Alloys" when you purchase the "Aluminum Casting Technology, 3rd Edition."
