The technology of manufacturing engineering and metallurgy are fields that cannot be left out of the development trend of the industrial revolution 4.0. Breakthrough technologies in metallurgy and metalworking, respectively, along with history, have marked great strides in metal technology, especially aluminum alloys. With outstanding properties in durability and versatile applicability in green manufacturing and lightweight materials, aluminum alloys have made miraculous leaps in the machine-building industry, especially in automotive and aeronautical engineering. The role of aluminum alloy is more important in the development of advanced metal technologies, especially the emergence of new and high-precision casting technologies. This work aims to focus on evaluating the typical properties of aluminum alloys as a basis for discussion of the casting technologies currently being developed for this lightweight material. The article also gave an overview of the development status and applicability of aluminum alloy casting technologies in the industry that is changing according to the current technological revolution.
