Calling All Castings If you have an innovative die casting design, you
should consider entering the 2013 International Die Casting Design
PURPOSE: Promote increased use
of die castings by recognizing and publicizing outstanding designs.
ELIGIBILITY: Entries will be judged in several categories of:
Aluminum, Zinc and Magnesium die casting. New for 2013 we will be
accepting castings from other alloy families as well! Both custom and captive
casters are eligible.
AWARDS: One winning casting will be awarded per category. An
award will be presented to the casting supplier and the customer.
JUDGING: There are four equally weighed criteria: ingenuity
of casting/product design; overall quality; cost savings &
contribution to expanding the market for castings. A panel of
independent judges, acknowledged experts, with no ties to eligible
casters, will choose the winners. The judges’ decisions are final.
TO COMPETE: Any number of castings may be entered. Send a
separate entry form for each casting or assembly of castings.
2013 Entry Form is available to
print to include with your entry.
Send your entry, along with a sample casting and detailed
