Local Courses
There are NADCA education and training chapters located throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Chapters are an extension of NADCA's education and training, and most offer selected NADCA national courses and programs locally . . . thus, expanding the technology transfer opportunities for every die caster. Chapters also offer a range of other technological and operational education programs specifically selected and tailored to the needs of die casters and suppliers in their chapter areas.

In-Plant Programs
All NADCA programs, courses and installations can be brought to the worksite for presentation. The cost in savings and scheduling advantages can be substantial!

In-House Programs
NADCA is now offering the "In-House Training Program for Operators and Technicians!" The In-House approach responds to the need of die casters to have control of the schedule, content and cost of training. It is a multi-module program that is highly cost-effective.

    Energy in Die Casting 03/19/2019 Die casting is a very energy intensive manufacturing process. Energy costs account for 5-7% of sales, but many die casters do not monitor energy past monthly utility statements. This course discusses the importance of measuring energy usage. When energy is measured it is easier to determine what improvements can be made to save the most energy and money. In addition, this course will provide information on equipment efficiency and best practices that can improve energy usage. Add to Calendar
