Understanding Aluminum Die Casting for Lighting Parts
Aluminum die casting refers to the die casting technique of aluminum alloys, of course, die casting is also suitable for other light metals such as zinc, magnesium, etc. Aluminum die casting allows for the creation of complex aluminum lighting parts.
To start the manufacturing process, aluminum ingots are heated and melted to liquid status under high temperature. The liquid aluminum is injected under high pressure into the cavity of a steel die, also known as a mold. The die is made up of two halves, and after the molten aluminum has solidified, they are separated to reveal the cast aluminum lighting part.
Lighting parts made from aluminum die casting process can achieve a smooth surface and often requires minimal or no machining processes. With the help of dies, the aluminum die casting process can be repeated many times using the same mold, making it ideal for the high-volume production of aluminum lighting parts. Aluminum die cast lighting parts are are extremely lightweight. Besides, there’re some other advantages that makes it the most suitable choice for lighting industry, such as:
- Corrosion resistance
- Great strength and rigidity
- Low Manufacturing Cost
- Considerable strength-to-weight ratio
- Outstanding EMI and RFI shielding properties
- Excellent thermal conductivity
- Great electrical conductivity
- Strong finishing characteristics
- Full recyclability
There are other methods of working with aluminum that are similar to die casting.
- Aluminum gravity casting. This is a process similar to aluminum die casting, but it is an easier operation. With aluminum gravity casting, there is no need to pour metals under high pressure, but only gravity. But the surface finish can not compare with that achieved by aluminum die casting, and for extreme complex lighting parts, aluminum die casting can only be considered.
- Aluminum forging. This is a forging that produces high-integrity aluminum products such as heat sinks for LED lights.
Each of these methods for manufacturing lighting parts has its own advantages. While each is best for different types of fixtures, each process results in products that are well made and popular with the public. We can show you how to save money by sourcing cast or forged aluminum light products you need.
