With the pressures of reduced lead times and budgets, knowledge of what is available is crucial to making the right decisions.

Basic knowledge of how to combine different methods will allow you to be able to search out the suppliers you require. When technologies are properly applied, you can shorten your lead times and produce your castings under budget.
