A Polish nonferrous foundry, Thoni-Alutec, has acquired an operation in England and plans new investments there, and to expand its own capabilities with the new operation. Ongoing investments at the Cinderford plant will include tooling design and production capability, casting simulation, heat treating, and in-house product testing and verification.

Flow Science Inc. is forming a new European subsidiary as an extension of its distribution network. Flow Science Deutschland GmbH will be a partnership with some of the personnel of the company’s former distributor, CFD Consultants GmbH, and will represent the FLOW-3D product line in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland, with sales and product support, as well as general consulting services in computational fluid dynamics (CFD.)
Precision Castparts Corp. — an investment caster, forger, and manufacturer of fasteners and other critical metal components — continues to acquire companies as it assembles an organization supplying aerospace and power-generation markets. Portland-based PCC said it would buy two California companies, Dickson Testing Co. and Aerocraft Heat Treating Co., in cash transactions.
No casting is perfect. Process controls are impressive, and quality control efforts are frequently effective, but imperfections very often develop as an inherent part of a metalcasting process. Gas bubbles trapped within a solidifying shape will create cavities or hold inclusions, and depending upon the metal, the shape, or the location of these defects the finished casting may be vulnerable to failure.
Nominations are welcome for the next induction to the FM&T Hall of Honor. For the 21st year, we are preparing to recognize those individuals whose technical and process innovations; organizational leadership; professional and industrial standards; and personal contributions and achievements have improved and enhanced metalcasting as a science, as an industry, and as a community.
