Who we are
Formed in 1967 the Diecasting Society is a membership driven organisation representing the interests of diecasting companies and suppliers to the industry through the promotion of technology and providing forums for discussion and debate. We operate as a charity, led by a team of dedicated volunteers with vast experience and knowledge of the diecasting industry, all of whom are committed to supporting the needs of our members and the industry.
How we help
The Diecasting Society collaborates with businesses and stakeholders to encourage innovation, promote best practice and the diecasting industry’s interests. We are committed to raising the profile and knowledge of our industry through an extensive program of events and training courses.
Why Join us
As a charity, our unique volunteer based structure enables us to provide our members with a medium through which to promote a healthy business environment. Coupled to this is a healthy yet balanced social scene, where industrialists share a unique experience of being amongst friends where others might not see beyond the competition.
As a member, you become part of an influential community. Working together, we’re actively driving the UK diecasting industry forward and we look forward to working with you in this endeavour.
Who we work with
The Society forms part of the larger metal casting industry and we have long established close links with the Institute of Cast Metals Engineers, Cast Metals Federation and the Aluminium Federation, as well as working in close partnership with other industry organisations to provide technical and social events for members.
Our commitment to educating through targeted training courses also means we work closely with a number of further education establishments.
Members Technical and Social Events
The Diecasting Society is split into three regional branches – Midlands, Northern and Southern. A national council steers the society and offers support to the regions and takes responsibility for the organisation of national events. Every two years the diecasting society stages a national technical conference, where members, guests and invitees have the opportunity to discuss issues across a wide range of subjects. The Diecasting Society is primarily a learned society and so runs a number of events which are designed to support the diecasting industry. However, throughout the year the Society organises many technical visits and social events for all age groups and skills to interact and network while increasing their knowledge of the industry. Former events have been such as Williams F1 and Emobility, JLR Engine Centre, Bell Foundry and paintballing to golf and greyhound racing.
