How are Aluminum Lighting Fixture Parts made?

How are Aluminum Lighting Fixture Parts made? Aluminum lighting fixture parts are generally made through a process called die-casting. Simply put, die casting is a way of forming a metal component by forcing molten metal into a mold through the application of high pressure.

Before the die casting process was invented, manufacturers produced lighting fixture parts mainly through welding. Unfortunately, this process was labor-intensive and time consuming. As a result, productivity standards were low. The high demand for lighting fixtures and the inability of the traditional process to produce enough parts to meet the demand led inventors to use aluminum to manufacture lighting fixture parts through die casting.

Aluminum lighting fixtures are now made with net shape. Die casting has brought convenience to the process, because the manufacturer need not spend long hours and a lot of labor to weld the pieces together. Instead, a typical manufacturer need only to produce a mold according to the client’s specifications, and use this to mold aluminum into lighting fixture components.

There are several advantages of using aluminum for lighting fixture parts. Aside from its light weight, and its concomitant benefit of lower shipping charges, aluminum also has great thermal properties. These excellent thermal properties make it ideal for use in household equipment and other electronic tools that require heat production.
