    With over 5,800 metalcasting terms, this dictionary is essential to anyone working in the metalcasting industry—from administrative staff to the board room, to the designer, engineer and educator, the industry supplier, to the molder on the foundry floor, to the college student.

    After we published the second edition of the Metalcasting Dictionary in 2004, our Sr. Technical Editor, Sue Thomas, kept copious notes on metalcasting terminology that would need to be added to our next edition. In 2019 we decided that it was time to share what Sue had been tracking for 15 years. (Sue has degrees in Engineering, Materials Science and Metallurgy which helps to ensure that the contents of this dictionary are as accurate and up-to-date as possible.)

    This is the foundry industry’s one-and-only Metalcasting Dictionary. Clear definitions are written in common terminology. The two-column format makes it easier to search for information and cross-reference terminology. In addition to the hundreds of new entries, this edition contains extensive sections on:

  • • 786 Metalcasting Acronyms
  • • 18 North American Metalcasting Associations
  • • 38 International Metalcasting Associations
  • • 25 Other Technical Associations and Specification Sources
  • • Weight Calculations for 20 Common Casting Shapes
  • • Numerous Decimal Equivalents of Common Fractions
  • • Extensive list of Metric Conversion Multipliers
  • • Periodic Table of the Elements
  • Cover design and layout by Tyler Buchenot
