Castings present a cost effect method to manufacture complex shapes. Casting design, however, does require specialized expertise and a knowledge of the strength & weaknesses of the process. To assist customers in developing this expertise in casting design, O'Fallon Casting offers its IC-101 Fundamentals of Casting Design class.

IC-101 is conducted in a classroom environment, at a customer facility.
