HISTORY

In 1943, Roy Fellom launched Light Metal Age, a magazine dedicated to the processing and manufacturing of Aluminum, Magnesium, Titanium, Beryllium and their alloys, as well as the non-ferrous metals Copper and Zinc. In the first page of the first issue of the then national magazine, Roy Fellom pledged that the magazine would further the interests of the Light Metal Industry to...

"promote the use and application of Magnesium and Aluminum, and their alloys, by suggesting specific advantages and adaptation to different fields: To educate and instruct in the working and handling of Light Metal by detailing methods in practice; To help to more quickly develop the Light Metal Industry through publication of discoveries, advances, and improvements in production and fabrication processes: To weld the Light Metal Industry—producer, fabricator, and consumer—closer together by the creation of a common medium of expression; To herald the Light Metal Era which will see these most abundant basic metals brought to the service of man in all the common uses where metal is required."

Over more than half a century later, Light Metal Age made its debut on-line. It has become internationally recognized for its thorough coverage of the light metals industry. Light Metal Age prides itself on keeping abreast of the latest technology for 72 years, and hopes you will enjoy our information-packed issues.
