The American Foundry Society is an student organization that helps its club members with foundry knowledge and industry connections. Another important part of the club is the annual foundry tour and also two $1,000 scholarships awarded to it’s members. Anybody from school can go on the tours. In our meeings we discuss club topics and then mold and pour aluminum castings. The American Foundry Society is the leading U.S. based metalcasting society that assists member companies (metalcasting facilities, diecasters and industry suppliers) and individuals to effectively manage all production operations, profitably market their products and services and to equitably manage their employees. The American Foundry Society also promotes the interests of the metalcasting industry before the legislative and executive branches of the federal government. With the direction of its volunteer committee structure, the professional staff of the American Foundry Society provides support in the areas of technology, management and education to further activities that will enhance the economic progress of the metalcasting industry.
