Jets stir up stronger aluminum, reduce casting waste

Aluminum is a ubiquitous part of our modern age, but it's surprisingly hard to produce alloys for it without putting up with significant waste from bad mixtures. MIT researchers Antoine Allanore and Samuel R. Wagstaff have been studying how aluminum alloys harden and have come up with a way to use jets to produce more even distributions of copper and manganese in castings.
