Aluminum Boxes and Enclosures in 2022

ALUMINUM BOXES AND ALUMINUM ENCLOSURES. What sensation aluminum has become in the hardware market is no secret. The metal and its derivatives are being widely being used in not only huge companies such as automobiles and aeronautics but also in small scale usage such as boxes and enclosures for mundane activities. Here is guide to the benefiting properties which make aluminum a favorite over its other metal and alloy counterparts, especially when it comes to boxes and enclosures. This article would also successfully hope to throw light on different purpose for which the boxes are being manufactured for.

? DURABILITY
Aluminum is, as of now, the most durable and its product the most stable, as compared to any other metal and its products if gauged on the scale of practical use. The aluminum boxes and enclosure, whether big or small are highly resistant to corrosive reactions and this one property is largely responsible for aluminum’s long life span.

? PROTECTS THE STORED MATERIAL
Aluminum and the derivatives obtained from it have a very low reactivity when they come in contact with air. There may be many elements and metals which are much lighter and durable than aluminum but lose out because they react vigorously when kept in the atmosphere. These highly reactive metals cannot be used to make something for casual use like normal boxes. Aluminum, being low on reactivity protects the stored material inside form reactants and attacks from outside.

? LIGHTER AND GOOD TEXTURE
Aluminum is very light as compared to other alloys/metals. This is one reason that huge enclosures which to be transported over long distances are made out of aluminum so that loading and unloading is a much easier task.

But these quality aluminum products are slightly costlier than those made from other metals but it is just an initial investment.

Zinc alloys and ZA alloys have risen similarly. Our customers will also unfortunately have to pay higher die casting part prices Or I cannot supply them the parts.

If you have a good die casting part supplier, pay the higher part cost. They cannot avoid these materials cost increases. Die Casting Aluminum Alloy Prices in March 2022 are Crazy.

Aluminum Prices March 2022

Die Casting Alloy Materials Are Crazy. I am getting calls from the customers of my competitors asking that I quote a part price. I always refuse to quote because my competitor is facing the same material cost increases I am facing. Some die casting materials, like za27, are not available today. I will have to wait a few weeks for material. I’ve never seen this before.

In the past, prior to 2020, the die casting metal alloy prices were like gentle waves on the ocean, they go up, they come down. I have always ridden the waves in the past by not increasing or changing the part prices for material increases. But I can’t ride the increased material costs anymore.

Today, the cost of aluminum alloy for die casting increased another $0.05 a pound. Zinc alloys have risen similarly. That is an increase that I have never seen in my 30 years in business. My customers will also unfortunately have to pay a higher part price Or I cannot supply them the parts.

If you have a good supplier, pay the higher part cost. They cannot avoid the cost increases. Die Casting Aluminum Alloy Prices in March 2022 are Crazy.

Aluminum Lighting Fixtures to Lighten up Your Home in 2022

Aluminum Lighting Fixtures

Aluminum Lighting Fixtures to Lighten up Your Home. Lighting fixtures are primarily for creating artificial illumination. A lighting fixture consists of the light source, an opening that could either have lenses or none, a light reflector that controls the light and directs it towards a certain point, an electrical counterweight, a light housing for protective purposes, and a cable connecting to the power source. Lighting fixtures can be classified as either outdoor or indoor lighting fixtures.

Prior to the introduction of die casting, parts used in lighting purposes were made by welding parts together. This process was impractical; it was slow, expensive, and labor extensive. Today however, lighting fixtures are produced through die casting, a process which involves the pressurizing of molten metals into mold cavities, which is followed by a cooling process. Die casting is extremely advantageous if your objective is to manufacture substantial amounts of small to medium-sized lighting parts with excellent details and features.



Die Casting Metal Flow Video.

Aluminum, a strong, lightweight metal, is the widely-used metal for die cast lighting parts because of its sturdiness, electrical conductivity and good thermal properties. The production of aluminum die castings is also better than with other metals because the former could be produced in net shape, doing away with welding.

Die cast aluminum lighting fixtures are used extensively in the lighting components found in parking garages and medical offices. These are also incorporated in street traffic lights, outdoor lights, wall lighting fixtures and bullet lighting fixtures. Aluminum lighting fixtures are also used for aerospace lighting, medical lighting, automobile lighting and marine lighting.
