North American Die Casting Association

North American Die Casting Association

The NADCA Die Casting Certification Program develops skills and competencies in die casting.

The North American Die Casting Association (NADCA) was founded in 1989 through the merger of the American Die Casting Institute (ADCI, founded in 1928) and the Society of Die Casting Engineers (SDCE, founded in 1957).

NADCA represents the voice of the die casting industry and is committed to promoting industry awareness, domestic growth in the global marketplace and member exposure. Headquartered in Arlington Heights, IL, the association is comprised of both individual members and corporate members located throughout United States, Canada and Mexico.

NADCA offers more than 30 industry training programs annually, both at its Arlington Heights, IL, headquarters and on-site at die cast plants and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) facilities. All NADCA’s education resources are centered on presenting industry knowledge, improving die cast part quality and production techniques.

Members of NADCA receive monthly magazines and e-newsletters on industry events and technical updates, die casting design assistance, discounts on publications and services, access to sales leads and exposure to OEMs. Most recently, NADCA has completed a searchable die caster database, containing more than 500 domestic die casters that can be filtered by name, region, materials and casting sizes.
