National Engineers Week: Mason Wellman
Mason Wellman, a mechanical engineer at Waupaca Foundry Plant 4, always had a knack for art and taking things apart and putting them back together. It wasn’t until his high school art teacher recommended looking into engineering school over art school that Wellman’s future really clicked.

Strengthening Workers for the Daily Grind
Grinding castings is a strenuous and demanding job – and assigning workers to that necessary task is a real challenge for metalcasting operations. But it’s essential work, and as foundries produce higher volumes of castings the strain and need grow proportionally. Waupaca Foundry is pioneering use of “adaptive technology” to support workers assigned to manually grind iron castings.
