THE MISSION

AMC develops and implements the best metalcasting technologies and processes to support DLA’s mission of improving the readiness and mission effectiveness of U.S. Warfighters. Better metal components ensure technological superiority on the battlefield, at sea, in the air and beyond the stratosphere.

AMC is an award-winning Defense Logistics Agency’s metalcasting technology development program.

AMC SUPPORTS DLA’S MISSION of improving the safety and mission effectiveness of U.S. warfighters.

AMC REDUCES LEAD TIMES by rapidly developing new ways to make high-performance castings, identifying existing tooling, and locating able suppliers.

AMC STRENGTHENS THE U.S. SUPPLY CHAIN for metal parts.

AMC DEVELOPS ENGINEERING SOLUTIONS to improve metal component performance.

AMC conducts research that generates real-world solutions facing DLA and the metalcasting industry. Our work does not result in concept papers – it generates new manufacturing processes, materials applications, and solutions to metal components acquisition and performance. See our many Success Stories for examples.

Visit us at the Defense Manufacturing Conference.

AMC will be in the Defense Logistics Agency booth at DMC2018. Come visit and learn about our program, projects and research opportunities. We will have several hands on exhibits, a reception each evening and a big bowl of ancient Tootsie Rolls.
