Originally established to co-ordinate the organisation of a regular International Foundry Congress, the WFO has since developed into a body involved with numerous activities to satisfy the requirement for the global exchange of information dissemination and international co-operation between Member Associations.
The WFO facilitates the technical co-operation between different nations, internationally united in the same aim - to promote and co-ordinate the activities of the cast metals and associated industries within their own individual countries and overseas.
The objectives of the WFO are as follows:
Promotion of the technology of the cast metals (foundry) industry;
Improving the image and understanding of the cast metals industry via the global exchange of knowledge;
Providing focus to all aspects of cast metals engineering;
Promoting international co-operation between Member Associations and other organisations;
Encouraging education and training in the cast metals industry;
Promoting the technical application of research and development of cast components.
