Die casting for lighting industry- This is a great way to work with aluminum alloys, zinc or copper. The finished product has excellent dimensional accuracy and some need little machining to finish it. This method can turn out fine, ornate fixtures with less expense.

Lighting Die Casting results in aluminum lights that are non-toxic and lightweight. They are also non-corrosive and well-suited for outdoor use. Die cast aluminum imitating cast iron is particularly sought after for street or outside lights, but they make fine chandeliers and wall lamps, too.

There are other methods of working with aluminum that are similar to die casting.

  • Permanent mold casting or gravity casting. This is a process much like die casting except that some small changes make it easier to work with lighter metals. Because these fixtures are so light, they are great for ceiling fixtures or any area where you don’t want to hang a lot of weight.
  • Liquid forging. This is a hybrid of forging and casting processes that produces high-integrity aluminum products such as heat sinks for LED lights.

Each of these methods of casting aluminum for lighting 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.
