Die Casting Defects Training Course Taught December 9th & 10th, 2011

Premier Engineered Products has just held its first Die Casting Defects Course designed and taught by the North American Die Casting Association.

Sixteen employees attended the course for two days in a classroom setting.  The students listened to Steve Uvardy, NADCA Technical Director, review the types of die casting defects and the root causes for each class of defect.  The course also included important topics such as die and gate design aspects that affect quality, process controls, productivity improvements, and metal handling.

The employees trained were from different departments within the Company.  The Course is part of a ten month initiative to train and improve the skill sets of all the employees in Premier.  There are twenty courses that are scheduled at Premier through September, 2012 in topics such as process monitoring to lean manufacturing.  All employees will be given at least one course during the next ten months.

Premier Engineered Products has been in business 66 years and has a diverse customer base and serves many industries and markets.  Today Premier is growing and hiring new employees to meet the demands of the growing global economy.

Premier utilizes state of the art equipment in manufacturing high pressure aluminum die casting such as Kawasaki robots, VisiTrak monitoring systems, die temperature control systems, vacuum die casting, and a central lubrication system for the die spray.
