State of technologies in Japan related to composite casting was reviewed based on the three year survey of Composite Casting Process Sub-Committee in Committee on Foundry Technology (24th) of JSPS. Other than making metal matrix composite, cast-in insertion, bonding and joining of cast materials and other technologies combining different materials by casting process were included. Basic theories and the key technologies are explained, and a number of typical examples of products, on production or on experimental bases, were reported. Overseas literatures were also surveyed.
