Each is the product of years in development and review by foundry industry experts. These handy reference guides are intended to provide product design engineers and casting buyers with important insights as to how and why to use nonferrous castings for their component needs.
The NFFS Guide to Aluminum Casting Design
A 320 page manual for aluminum foundries and their customers published with assistance from the Center for Applied Research in Metalcasting at The University of Northern Iowa, this reference guide includes sections on casting design, alloy selection, geometric dimensions and tolerances, material properties and specifications.
Copper Casting Alloys
A joint publication of NFFS and the Copper Development Association, this 112 page publication covers alloy selection, specifications, physical and mechanical properties of copper-base alloys, and casting design
Cast Copper Alloy Sleeve Bearings
A joint publication of NFFS and the Copper Development Association, this 72 page handbook has been prepared for the use of engineers, designers and purchasing managers involved in the selection, design, manufacture, or use of copper alloy bearings.
Alloy Specification Charts
These popular NFFS reference guides present chemical and mechanical properties for most common aluminum sand & permanent mold alloys, and brass &bronze alloys, including no-leads. Copies are available to casting customers directly from the Society, but complimentary copies are often available from non-ferrous foundries upon request.
