Badger Alloys Mentors “Cast in Steel” Teams

Badger Alloys mentored teams from UW-Milwaukee and Michigan Tech in the “Cast in Steel” competition at the American Foundry Society’s CastExpo 2019. Teams from 16 colleges competed to design, pour and finish the best performing steel axe. The UWM team, guided by metallurgist Mike Beining, poured the competition axe on site at our sand foundry. Brad Moore, director of sales engineering, joined Beining at the competition in Atlanta in April. Moore said, “It’s exciting to see students — the future generation of foundry engineers — getting passionate about casting design. We were happy to support UWM and Michigan Tech in this competition.”

The “Cast in Steel” competition was sponsored by Steel Founders’ Society of America. Check out the video!
