Casting as a Route to Manufacture – what do your designer engineers and purchasers need to know?

Jaguar Land Rover were seeking training for their staff to give them a better understanding. Over the course of three days, two castings specialists from the Institute of Cast Metals Engineers, ICME, hosted a group of twelve Costing and Purchasing Engineers from Jaguar Land Rover to present a foundation course in high pressure diecasting.

As the professional engineering institute for the UK Casting and Foundry Industry, ICME were able to develop a bespoke programme for the company, tailored for their particular needs and for their range of parts and alloys.

The course included an overview of the full range of casting processes, information about how to design for casting with advice on best practice and mistakes to avoid, helping to ensure right first time design, as well as visits to two local foundries.

Casting is a complex process, and not all casting processes are suitable for all applications, but there are some simple dos and don’ts for end users which can enable them to optimise their designs for casting. ICME has a range of courses on offer and can also offer bespoke programmes for companies looking to improve their knowledge.
