Zinc in the Home: Its Use in Furniture Pieces. A clean home is a good home. After all, a grimy house imitates the values and outlooks of its owners. It is a display of the self, as they say. An orderly home, in that sense, shows purity, organization, and harmony.

A guaranteed way of keeping a space spotless is through the use of drawers and cabinets. Regularly made of wood, these furniture pieces can be both ornamental and consolidating. Made of diverse kinds of wood such as oak and mahogany, they can be used to store glass, plaster, and crystal-like decorations, as well as children’s toys, clothes, and books.

But a fantastic homemaker, apart from warranting a clean home, must also think of the decorative quality of his or her fixtures. For cabinets and drawers, aside from the engravings and carvings, handles and brackets can be used to show originality and sophistication.

Often made of metal, these objects can be built by using Zinc die casting. Handles and brackets in cabinets and drawers can be modified, according to the ornamental requests and needs of a customer, via die casting websites and shops. This is chiefly imperative for home owners who are following a particular theme in their decorating.

Moreover, if made using zinc die casting,

and brackets are stout and tough, able to endure even the industrious activity of children. Aside from strength, they can also be decked out in a display of colors and finishes that will not cost the metal’s dormant abilities.

Lasting and bendable, zinc is one material that can safeguard security and creativity at the same time.

On Monday, I heard about Joyners Die Casting Company is CLOSING. There will be an equipment auction on December 11, 2014 10:00 am CDT for the Joyner die casting equipment. This is very sad news indeed. Another USA die casting manufacturing company closure. This is a continuation of a long sad trend of US Manufacturing companies that struggle and can not stay in business due to EPA issues, employee issues, legal issues and struggles for quality and profit. All this information is available to anyone searching online. Now there is a loss of $10,000,000 in our United States manufacturing capacity. The ones who hurt the worst are the additional 100 Minnesota manufacturing employees who are unemployed and on the street just in time for Christmas.

Why Use American Die Casting Companies. Metal casting is one of America’s most fundamental industries. There are about 1,994 metal casting companies in the entire country employing around 250,000 employees.

It is also one of the world’s most dynamic industries. Countries like the United Kingdom, and most notably China and India, have seen their local die casting companies grow rapidly in recent years. One of the main reasons behind it is that some American die casting companies have shifted their manufacturing operations to offshore locations, especially in the Asia Pacific region.

Cost cutting is one of the driving forces for offshore outsourcing. Offshore die casting companies offer lower labor, production, and raw material costs. In addition to it, strict enforcement of local environmental laws is also pointed out as among the main factors behind it.

How can the local die casting industry cope with this development? Why should businesses and consumers use American die casting companies instead of their offshore counterparts?

Quality remains the top edge of the local die casting industry. It is true that offshore companies offer lower overhead costs. However, this does not necessarily translate to getting the same, if not higher, level of quality that American die casting companies produce.

The North American Die Casters Association
NADCA North American Die Casting Logo
(NADCA
) has reported a number of stories where some offshore die casting products and services turned out to be suffering from bad design and workmanship. This caused rework for the local companies that used them. Eventually, they end up spending more to correct such flaws. One local company was even sued because of an inferior product that they sold.

NADCA also questions whether offshore companies are indeed ISO certified. NADCA emphasizes that American die casting companies work according to the standards set by the association. Offshore companies cannot guarantee the same. By using offshore products and services, local die casting companies are in fact creating their own competition. In the final analysis, turning to offshore outsourcing to save money is more of a myth than a reality.
