Australian Die Casting Association caters to both companies and individuals involved in die casting

Supplier News
The Australian Die Casting Association (ADCA) represents the interests of the die casting industry in Australia, and is the result of the merging of two previous industry organisations.

The Association states that its objectives are to promote:
  • the advancement of the Australian die casting industry
  • the education and development of people in the industry; and
  • co-operation between the Association, the industry and Government.
These objectives are met through:
  • regular branch meetings and plant visits
  • seminars, workshops and conferences
  • publishing of the Die Casting Bulletin magazine
  • development and delivery of education programs
  • support for research and development programs
The origins of the ADCA can be traced back to 1954. At this time, a number of die casting companies concerned about maintaining a good reputation for their industry by ensuring that only high purity zinc alloys were used formed the Zinc Alloy Die Casters Association of Australia. This organisation would later be known as the Diecasting Institute of Australia.

As this Association catered exclusively to companies, the Society of Die Casting Engineers of Australia was established in 1965 as an organisation that catered to individuals working within the industry.

By 1993, the decision was made to merge these two organisations to become the Australian Die Casting Association.
