Pouring Image

The purpose of the Foundry Research Group (FRG) at SVSU is to promote the metalcasting industry and advance the state of foundry science and technology.  The FRG has the ability to use any of the facilities of the mechanical engineering department.  Of course the primary laboratory used is the foundry.

FRG engages in typical academic research, foundry consulting, casting design, defect analysis, and process debugging.  We are active partners with the foundry industry, OEMs, and startup companies that need assistance with the metalcasting process.  More details on ways to partner with us or another foundry research group can be found here.
