Handles are the common hardware used for home and industrial applications. People may see handles in different types of materials, such as wood, plastic, stainless steel, brass and aluminum. Among all the materials, handles made from aluminum is the most popular, so you can find aluminum handles are installed everywhere that requires the manipulation of the human hand in pulling or turning. For example, aluminum handles are used to open or close house and car doors. The same thing goes with cabinet handles, which are are more decorative compared to aluminum handles for car or house uses. Besides, there are also some horizontal pull handles which are installed on drawers, car doors, etc.
Aluminum is hard, tough, durable and very strong, however it is very light and cheap. All these features makes it ideal to mass produce aluminum Handles. Majority of aluminum handles are made through die casting, which supports the production of bulk orders. Aluminum die casting is a manufacturing process that can produce aluminum handles using reusable molds, also called dies. The complete manufacturing process involves the use of a furnace, aluminum ingots, die casting machine, and mold. Solid aluminum ingots are melted in a heating furnace under high temperature, and then injected into the dies under the workforce of die casting machine. Once the liquid aluminum solidifies, the solid aluminum handles are formed.
Aluminum die casting process can effectively cast out the holes into place without the additional machining, which helps save cost. Also, aluminum handles cast in one piece are are stronger than a steel welded part. With the help of die casting molds, the manufacturing process is more stable and high efficient than other industrial processes. In addition, it is easier to polish aluminum handles to achieve a smooth and shining surface finish. The rate of manufacture die cast aluminum handles can reach a few thousands in a day.
