All Hands on Deck For Critical Cupola Replacement
Proactive planning and foresight, all-in collaboration, and effective communication resulted in success for a staggering undertaking: replacing one of two cupolas at Waupaca Foundry Plant 5 in Tell City, Indiana, and within a four-week window. The entire project was executed, though truly a “Herculean effort,” according to Bruce Tesch, Director of Melt and Manufacturing Processes, essentially due to the steady and dedicated efforts of all involved.

Waupaca Foundry Tooling Engineer Alan Crawford earned his Level III MAGMASOFT® certification in 2022—one of only approximately 50 in the United States. His recent presentation at the MAGMA North American User Group meeting in Chicago, Illinois, on September 7-9, 2022, made a significant impact. In fact, the certification panel asked Crawford to share his capstone project again at the MAGMA International User Group event in Munich, Germany, on October 19-21, 2022.

New Soft Exoskeleton Glove in Foundry Lends a Hand to Worker Wellbeing
Foundries have long been defined by their hard work environments and manual labor. However, in the last 25 years, Waupaca Foundry has both witnessed and led industry change. Since 2016 alone, Waupaca Foundry has invested over $360 million in capital to build, continuously improve, and maintain state-of-the-art operations. Technology and automation have made foundry and machining jobs safer, more ergonomic and skilled. Areas in the foundry where manual operations still outpace robotics do remain, though, such as in the mill room. There is an opportunity to bridge the automation gap and improve work environments that support team wellness and longevity. Enter the world’s first soft exoskeleton glove: The Ironhand®.
