Take the Heat off and Use Aluminum Heatsinks. Aluminum heatsinks are among die casting products with wide applications in consumer goods. In fact, as you are reading this in your PC, an aluminum heatsink part is most likely working for you. An aluminum heat sink is the component built sitting on top of the circuit board of a computer’s CPU to prevent overheating and damage to the circuits.

What does aluminum heat sinks do? What aluminum heat sinks do is take the heat off from the computer’s board because the material that this die casting aluminum is made has good thermal conductivity. Aluminum use as die casting material is also advantageous because it is very light, making aluminum heatsinks a necessary component for both desktop and laptop computers.

Also, Aluminum heat sinks are useful in thermal management of refrigeration systems. Heat is removed from the enclosed refrigerator space and shifted somewhere else for a more efficient operation. For several years, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in North America have sourcing such components as aluminum heatsinks from overseas die casting companies because of cost considerations.

Unfortunately, things have changed lately as the OEMs have realized that the sourcing die casting components, such aluminum heatsinks, from overseas suppliers is not cost-effective after all. There are quality issues in die casting products manufactured overseas. In addition, there are logistical problems with overseas suppliers, making US die casting companies more attractive as local production partners. A more serious concern is confidentiality. For instance, a computer manufacturer may have to reveal product specifications, technological know-how and marketing information to its foreign supplier of aluminum heatsinks, a leak that could be tapped by competitors either at home or abroad.

The Benefits of Aluminum Castings. Aluminum castings can provide many benefits for manufacturers as well as for end consumers. With the use of aluminum for die casting, the manufacturing process would be faster but the finished parts can be as strong as metal and cheaper too.

So here are other specific benefits of aluminum die casting that can be enjoyed by industries and end consumers. First, aluminum castings can allow the attainment of complex designs and forms for die cast parts. This means that manufacturers can easily order customized castings that will be suitable for their production needs.

Aluminum castings allow producers to manufacture parts at an extremely higher and faster rate than other alloy materials.Die casting aluminum can also achieve near net shape so the process of machining can be eliminated to produce finished parts.

Aluminum castings have the strength of steel but very lightweight. The appearance and aesthetic value of aluminum parts are also superior to other metal alloys. However, aluminum die cast parts are cheaper so end consumers can get high quality metal products at very affordable prices.

Castings made from aluminum are versatile, corrosion resistant, and can be used for different purposes. These qualities allow manufacturers to produce multiple products using aluminum parts. The finished products also have longer lifetimes thus giving consumers more value for their money.

Furthermore, manufacturers and consumers can enjoy multiple benefits from aluminum castings. That is why production of aluminum parts through the die casting has become the most favored process of metal casting manufacturers.

Sadly, one of our competitors has closed their operations. Another California Die Casting Manufacturing Company is gone.
ArtMold logo
Art Mold Die Casting Company 11872 Sheldon Street Sun Valley, CA 91352 is closed. ArtMold started producing die castings in 1978. Nearly 40 years in business here in Southern California. Their commitment to excellence and concern for competitive pricing was an integral part of their growth. Sadly, their demise came at the hands of foreign competitors. They could no longer maintain their high standards of quality while paying increased costs for doing business in California. Art Mold still tried to compete with die casting prices from countries that do not have a minimum wage law, competitors that do not pay insurance costs, they do not pay holiday pay for employees or pay employees for sick days.

Now about my company, Kinetic Die Casting Company.

We are still going strong. My company does an excellent job taking care of my employees with fair wages, paid vacations, paid sick days, and holiday pay. In return, my customers get excellent service, the best product quality and the willingness of my employees to deliver products on time. A small price to pay for world class results. As a small American manufacturer, I keep my product prices as low as possible to compete globally. I work with customers by giving them discounts on prices whenever I can. We are local, customers can order and get products in one or two days. We are willing to produce low production quantities of parts. Our quality is the best quality you can find. We are available by email or phone at any time. We have no hidden environmental fees or setup fees. We expedite our products for free if our customers make a mistake logistically. I am helping the local economy by keeping manufacturing jobs here in California.

Yes, we are taking over some of the die casting work from ArtMold Die Casting Company (AMDC). We are 15 minutes away from AMDC. I have agreed with the owner of AMDC that I will honor the prices they have with their existing customers. He also agreed to give me any special tips necessary to make your parts.
