Are Aluminum Die Casting Parts stronger and cheaper than Steel in 2020?

Are aluminum die casting parts stronger and cheaper than steel?

How can an aluminum die cast part be stronger than a steel weldament? Kinetic Die Casting, Inc. makes an aluminum die casting Boomerang cam lever part for a lift manufacturer that once was a two pound steel welded unit. This unit consisted of two steel plates, 1/8″ thick, with holes drilled, tapped, and welded to steel spacers with a bushing at each end, then painted. Occasionally, these units would fail in the field. Manufacturing costs ran about $7.00 per part in production quantities of 1,000 each week. Another difficulty is that it took three to four weeks to make the first steel part and only a few 100 could be produced a week. This hindered increased sales.

Kinetic Die Casting now produces these parts in aluminum die casting that weigh only 3/4 pounds; the steel unit weighed over two pounds. The aluminum die casting parts are stronger (3x greater axial load) and more reliable. There is no need for paint on the aluminum die casting parts. The Kinetic Die Casting part price of each die casting unit is less than $3.00.

Kinetic Die Casting can help you develop an aluminum die casting that will reduce weight, increase strength, and cost you less money.

Advantages of the Aluminum Die Cast Part over the Steel Weldament:

  • 3x greater axial load strength.
  • Fewer part failures in the field and fewer returns to the OEM.
  • Part weight is 2.5x less in aluminum saving money in shipping cost.
  • Production quantities (1,000’s) within a few days instead of weeks as before.
  • Production rate is faster as an aluminum die cast part.
  • Raw part manufacturing cost is 2.3x less as an aluminum die cast part.
  • Finishing cost is less as an aluminum die cast part.
  • Better looking parts as a die cast part.

Aluminum Door Handles are Hardware 2020

Aluminum Door Handles

Hardware Door Handles are made to be touched, pulled and turned. Handles are a hardware item that is made to manipulate by a human hand (hand-le). Handles are installed on any item that needs manipulation by the human hand. Handles are used on the door of a home to open and close the door. Door handles sometimes are able to lock to prevent the door from opening. Door handles are used on cars to open and close car doors. These handles are pull handles because they are typically pulled to pull open the car door. Doors on cabinets are special types of pull handles. These pull handles are more decorative and pleasing to the eye. These handles are sometimes ornate in design and have an unusual feel to make the cabinet more valuable. Horizontal pull handles are widespread, including drawer pulls, handles on latch less doors and the outside of car doors. The inside controls for opening car doors from inside are usually pull handles, although their function of permitting the door to be pushed open is accomplished by an internal unlatching linkage. Some door handles do not seem like handles at all. A fire door has a push bar that is the door handle. In a sense, the push bar is a door handle. Door Handles are Hardware Items.

Brass Die Casting Lighting Fixtures are a Good Choice 2020

Why Brass Die Casting Lighting Fixtures are a Good Choice. There are two very common techniques used in making lighting fixtures out of brass – sheet lighting fixtures and brass die casting lighting fixtures. In the case of sheet brass fixtures, they are created by taking sheets of solid brass then bending the brass sheets into the desired shapes. This can be accomplished by making use of a high-pressure machine press. The machine press will stamp the brass sheets into their molded shapes. In comparison to die cast brass, sheet brass is much thinner. It is however more economical.

Brass die casting lighting fixtures on the other hand, make use of molds. Liquid brass will be poured into these molds to form the lighting fixtures. Most manufacturers and suppliers prefer die cast molds because of their quality and durability. For parts and fixtures that require consistent fits, efficient finishes and tight tolerances, brass die casting is well preferred. A method called sand casting is often used as an alternative to die casting. In this method a temporary mold made from packed sand is used. Brass is poured into the sand mold and when the brass hardens, the sand mold is broken away. This however does not come close to the efficiency and preciseness of die cast molds.

Brass die casting lighting fixtures speak of nothing but quality, durability and longevity. Even under rugged, humid or corrosive outdoor environments, brass lighting fixtures will last a lifetime. Furthermore, when it comes to aesthetic beauty, nothing can compare to the classic and stylish appearance of brass.

Die Casting Lighting Fixtures

The main purpose of lighting fixtures or parts is to create artificial light.

Lighting fixtures can be classified as indoor lighting fixtures and outdoor lighting fixtures.

Before the introduction to an aluminum die casting company, lighting parts are made by welding pieces together. This process is costly, time consuming, and labor extensive. Nowadays, lighting parts are manufactured by die casting, a process wherein molten metal is forced into mold cavities. Die casting is beneficial if you are producing large quantities of small to medium sized lighting parts with good details,

Aluminum is lightweight and sturdy, a material often used to make lighting parts because of its durability and good thermal and electrical properties. Die cast aluminum lighting parts are made faster because they can be produced in net shape, meaning there are no welding or drilling methods needed after. Holes can be added to the mold cavities. These holes are necessary for the installation of covers or lids.

Die cast aluminum lighting parts are used in medical offices and parking garages for lighting fixtures. They are also used for bullet lighting fixtures, street traffic lights, outdoor and wall lighting fixtures. Furthermore, there are special light parts made for Aluminum lighting fixtures used for automobile lighting, marine lighting, medical lighting, and aerospace lighting.
