Welcome to the Ductile Iron Society


  • Change of Date!  We previously announced via the Presidents Letter to members that our fall meeting would be held October 14-16, 2015 in Wisconsin.  That date has been changed to October 28-30, 2015.
  • Ask-The-Experts Forum created.  We were unable to recover our old forum information so we created a new one.  You must register again.  You can use the same registration info you use on the Member’s Only area but you will always have to log into the forum separately from the Member’s Area. It’s a little more difficult to register for security purposes!  We hope you will register and post to the forum often!
  • DIS has formed new MetalCasting Forum Committee.  This committee will offer a structured, yet informal venue for DIS members to exchange information related to the foundry and casting technology of Ductile Iron.

The main objective of the Ductile Iron Society is to advance the technology, art, science of ductile iron production and to disseminate all such information to the members. Such an objective is achieved by:

  • Research programs aimed at improving production technology, solving long standing production problems, and providing better manufacturing economies.
  • Exchange of technical and production knowledge through Society meetings, plant visits, and encouraging private conversations.
  • Issuing various reports and bulletins covering research and new technology.
  • Quality guidance and Certification of producers.
