Field Trip to Pacific Steel Casting
Tuesday, November 29, 2017 - The students of Professor Peter Hosemann's NE120 Materials Course took a field trip today to Pacific Steel Casting. This local steel casting company, established in 1934, specializes in sand casting. The workers showed the students the process from computer modeling engineering components to the final product. The students witnessed the pouring of stainless steel into molds as well as the quality control, mold fabrication and post-casting heat treatment, as well as cleaning processes. Many thanks to Pacific Steel Casting for hosting our students once again.
