    Aluminum Casting and its alloys are going to play a very important role in the future of our automotive & engineering industries. lesser weight is the key to efficiency for any moving machine or part, and what better than aluminum. with the advent of modern metallurgy, alloying & melting techniques and the metal additive technology - 3D printing, we shall see unleashing of a tremendous potential of Aluminum in India as well. Have visited several foundries in Italy producing Aluminum castings - they have gained a lot of experience, time has come to partner them and bring the technology to India, and get fast on the changing metal culture of the world..
