The shortage of talents with metal foundry technology is the key to the development of metal casting technology. It mainly displays in three aspects as follows.
Firstly, there are fewer numbers of technical and managingpersons. With uneven distribution, the least technical and managing staffs account for only 12% of the total staffs in metal foundry , but most of that account for 323%, a difference of 27 times, state-owned metal foundry, especially the military metal foundry has high proportion.
Secondly, there are fewer senior talents. Technical and managing talents in metal foundries are basically from technical secondary school, college and undergraduate students, especially the number of technical secondary school and college students are the most, but graduate students are rare.
Third, the source of new talents becomes narrow. Many colleges and universities would no longer set metal casting majorafter 1990. The number of metal foundry school owned by some large and medium-sized enterprises also has a downward trend.
The root cause of the lack of talents in metal foundry is the poor payment and bad working environment. Only by the way of training more metal casting talents, metal foundry can have a better development.
