New Roadmap Outlines Strategy to Advance Development and Implementation of Thermal Manufacturing Technologies in the Next Five Years
By providing specific actions for a more coordinated cross-sector approach to advanced thermal manufacturing, this roadmap aims to enable the more than 100,000 businesses involved in and impacted by thermal manufacturing to improve the efficiency of their operations as well as the performance of the U.S. manufacturing sector as a whole.
Member Case Study
Eck Industries, a world-class producer of alloy castings, reached out to ACRC for a better understanding of hot tearing variables on alloys. Eck was able to apply the detailed effects of mold temperature, grain refining, and pouring temperature from one of ACRC’s research projects to its business. The net result: start-up time has been cut in half – saving significant time and money.
