Kinetic Die Casting Company makes Cast Aluminum Parts for Music

Kinetic Die Casting Company makes Cast Aluminum Parts for Music. Amplifiers were first used for electronic keyboards and bass guitars, but have since then expanded to other instruments for a full range speaker system and power level. Amplifier is required to reproduce the low frequency pitches produced by electronic keyboards and bass guitars especially at higher volumes.

The guitar amplifier chassis is produced in aluminum through Kinetic Die Casting Company. Aluminum is often used are in solid states, because they are lightweight, easy to repair and less expensive. However, some guitarists prefer vacuum tube amps despite it being heavy weight and expensive. Many of them prefer vacuum tube guitar amplifiers because of the sound it makes, particularly in blues and rock music genres. Modern tube amplifiers are designed to no longer require tube biasing making it simpler for its users.

Here are some features of Guitar Amplifiers made from cast aluminum parts:

  • Dual 12AX7 tubes biased at 250 V
  • Aluminum die cast amplifier chassis through Kinetic Die Casting Company
  • Comprehensive guitar LED indicator
  • Remote control switching
  • Unique Bass control adjusts the guitar resonant speaker response
  • Scoop control for massive tone shaping
  • Advanced Treble control for detailed guitar
  • Switcheable 20 DB nuclear gain boost response

    Kinetic Die Casting is located in North Hollywood,California. KDC specializes in manufacturing zinc and aluminum alloy casting parts. If you would like a quote, please visit our website:Kinetic Die Casting Company

    Customer Multiplied Total Sales 5x

    About ten years ago, two men named “Brian” and “Ron” working for a machining company in Orange County, California contacted Kinetic Die Casting Company to quote a “Project” for a simple die casting tool to produce from 5,000 to 23,000 sets of parts.

    Night Vision Goggle Die Casting Set Each set would make up a “Night Vision Goggle Device”.

    These sets consisted of seven (7) separate parts; the machining company would machine and assemble.

    Brian needed these parts delivered very fast. The cost of the tooling needed to be inexpensive in order to be competitive.

    We decided to make a “unit die tool” because of the low quantity potential and chose a good toolmaker in the Los Angeles area to make the tool. We opted to trim the parts with a simple “push through trim die” and to hand finish the parts. In order to make the tooling, we used 3D files from their Mastercam to produce IGES files. We added the shrinkage and draft necessary in order for the die casting tool to function properly.

    The project went very well. In fact, Brian won additional contracts to produce more Night Vision Goggles. For a few years we were producing up to 5,000 sets or 35,000 parts every week. For three years straight this company was our top customer company and for five years a very good customer indeed.

    At the project conclusion Kinetic Die Casting Company had produced over 400,000 sets of parts or 2,800,000 parts from that simple die casting tool for our good customer. This was a huge success for our customer because they grew in sales over 5x in those five years.

    Expanded use of Magnesium Diecasting

    “There are three ways to reduce fuel consumption,” says Morales. “We can reduce or eliminate the use of gasoline by developing hybrid cars and fuel cell powered vehicles. We can make our direct combustion engines more efficient. Or, we can reduce the weight of the vehicle to use less gas.” That’s why a special ASM International symposium at the Materials Science & Technology Conference will be held in Pittsburgh, Oct. 25–29, to discuss how lightweight materials can provide effective solutions while maintaining vehicle strength and integrity.

    Still, expanded use of magnesium die casting has proven difficult because of the cost of the metal, which has been 2.2-times higher than aluminum, its chief competitor, for the past three years. Also, a decline in imports from Russia and Canada, two of the country’s leading ingot import sources, has caused a supply shortage on the spot market for more than a year.

    And, in recent months, China has become the world’s largest supplier of magnesium ingot and has been keeping world prices elevated. Meanwhile, softness in demand from the North American auto and machinery industries—coupled with high magnesium prices—has closed or bankrupted several magnesium die-casting companies. That’s why China—especially from plants in Shanxi Province—has become a major world supplier of magnesium die castings.

    U.S. magnesium prices peaked cyclically at $3.65 in July 2008 but have since slipped to $2.29 in July 2009. Since magnesium isn’t traded on commodity exchanges, supply-and-demand fundamentals usually set price trends, except when such outside influences as trade restrictions or punitive tariffs artificially inflate sales costs. Lately, it’s been Beijing’s restrictions on raw material exports. The U.S. and the European Union have filed a World Trade Organization complaint that China is violating Article XI of the 1947 General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade—the founding document of what is now the World Trade Organization—as well as the terms of China’s own membership agreement with the WTO.
    What’s happening is that China’s supplies of magnesium are so large that Beijing’s recent export restrictions have driven up the costs on world markets while holding them down domestically. The result is a subsidy of sorts for Chinese manufacturers, letting them charge less for finished die-cast goods than foreign firms pay for the raw material.

    Also, with magnesium diecasting demand down worldwide, Chinese producers are delaying negotiations on 2010 ingot supply contracts with traders until winter this year—rather than the usual late summer or early fall. Market sources say most consumers are trying to determine how much raw material they will need next year—and that may take some time to crystallize.

    What is an Aluminum Die Casting Company?

    What is an Aluminum Die Casting Company? Aluminum today is a commonly used metal alloy in a lot of products covering numerous industries. It is used in building automobiles, it is used in consumer electronics, and it is used in housing projects and many more. There are several ways to make use of this metal alloy. Manufacturers all over the world have chosen this metal for their products because it is cheap to obtain, it is a lightweight material yet it is very strong and durable. When it comes to their aluminum needs, manufacturers commonly go to an Aluminum Die Casting Company.

    An Aluminum Die Casting Company provides a service to manufacturers of manipulating aluminum metals into the desired shape and size. In other words, these companies are responsible for taking a bar of aluminum alloy and turning them into various parts such as heat sinks, lighting fixtures, brackets and automotive parts. They do this through a process known as die casting wherein the aluminum bars are subjected to intense heating until they liquefy. The liquefied aluminum will next be poured into large metal casings known as castings or molds. The liquid metal would take the form of the casting and when it is cooled, the metal will harden into its former solid state no longer a bar, but the intended shape.

    The service of an Aluminum Die Casting Company is very valuable to many manufacturers as they provide high quality material at low costs. This is especially helpful for those does not have access to the needed machinery to accomplish die casting.

    What are Diecast Parts and Why Use Them

    What are Diecast Parts and Why Use Them? Diecast parts are the collective end result of a tedious process that is governed by strict principles of metallic and hydraulic science and powered by technology. This process is known all around the world today as diecasting, an age-old method that has lasted for over a century now. The process involves the injection of molten metal into steel molds or dies under high pressure. There are a variety of metals that can be used for the process; whatever the choice of the manufacturer is, that particular metal is held under pressure until, finally, it hardens into a metal part carrying a net shape.

    Today, the diecasting process enjoys a highly marketable popularity in the metalworking industry, thanks primarily to the many advantages it offers to manufacturers and consumers alike. If you haven’t been keen on going for diecast parts, it’s about time you switch and leave your current choice of casting method for good.

    The diecasting process is first and foremost a versatile process that provides manufacturers and consumers with a much broader range of choices in terms of shapes, sizes, and components more than any other manufacturing technique for metalwork nowadays. Die cast parts can come out in a variety of physical appearance and with accurate dimensional tolerances, exact measurement specifications, and different finishing options – from textural feel to visual form. What’s more, diecast parts are economical to make. They don’t need much assistance from machines and tools before, during, and after production. Both manufacturers and consumers can save hundreds of dollars when they go for diecasting company parts.
