The American Metalcasting Consortium provides direct support to the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) through new technology, improved processes, and technical expertise in the procurement of metalcastings to ensure warfighter readiness.
AMC integrates the nation’s top academic metalcasting researchers with the CAST-IT team of industry experts and the four leading metalcasting industry associations and their members to solve supply chain management issues and support DLA’s mission. AMC membership includes 95% of U.S. metalcasters and 25 leading metals research universities.
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 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.
