Technical Problem Support is Only a Call Away

At the Advanced Casting Research Center (ACRC) we collaborate on research addressing the global foundry industry. We bring fundamental understanding to existing processes, develop new methods and address management-technology interface issues with our industrial partners. Some call ACRC the finest foundry-related industry-university research consortium in the world.

What Members Say

Jason Sebastian

“QuesTek receives tremendous benefit from our participation in ACRC. As a small business with limited internal R&D resources, the access to top-quality research through the students, the WPI faculty, and the projects is invaluable. The networking opportunities afforded by the biannual meetings have been fantastic, and have led to multiple commercial project opportunities for QuesTek. We look forward to continuing our relationship with ACRC and to building new partnerships in the years to come.”
