West Michigan American Foundry Society

The West Michigan American Foundry Society (AFS) Chapter provides technical, educational, social and networking opportunities for the local foundry community. Our membership includes metal casters, metal suppliers, foundry material suppliers, industry consultants and vendors.

October AFS Chapter Meeting – Oct. 8, 2019

Raymond Monroe, Executive Vice President of the Steel Founders’ Society of America will be our speaker. Ray has had a lot of fun, fooling around with steel castings for forty years. For the first ten years he did technical stuff, research at Southern Research Institute and technical projects for Steel Founders’ Society. He “lost” foam making castings at Saturn Corporation. For the last thirty years he has retired into management. Now he is the Executive Vice President of the Steel Founders’ Society of America and spends his time going to meetings, visiting friends in the industry, talking on the phone and keeping up with gossip.
