The Investment Casting Institute has announced the winning castings for its 16th Casting Design Contest in October, at the 64th Annual ICI Technical Conference & Expo.
The Innovator of the Year Award was given to Feinguss Blank GmbH for making an integral scheme for traceability.

Awards were presented to O’Fallon Casting for aerospace; Uni-Cast for defence, Artcast, Inc. for fine art, Fansteel Intercast for marine and Aristo-Cast for pumps and valves.
