The NADCA Tabletop Exposition was held in Louisville, Kentucky from September 16-18, 2013. The Exposition was a large success with over 750 attendees visiting with suppliers and their peers.
A well known event during the exposition was the 2013 International Die Casting Design Competition which acknowledges industry innovation along with promoting the increased use of die castings through recognizing and publicizing outstanding designs. There are four equally weighted criteria: ingenuity of casting and/or product design, overall quality, cost savings as compared to other manufacturing processes and the part’s contribution to expanding the market for die castings. A panel of independent judges—acknowledged experts—chose this year’s winners.
