The foundry lab provides hands-on experience in Lost Foam Casting and Green Sand Casting processes for Freshman in IME-100. Students from all disciplines enjoy an Open Foundry Day to produce unique castings of their design for their personal use each term. An upper level course in Casting Processes utilizes the foundry for an in-depth study of process control parameters required to produce quality castings. Students can use the foundry to produce parts for their class projects in other manufacturing courses. The largest casting produced to date for a student project weighted 25 pounds as cast.
