As we know, the aluminum is play an important role and will influence the quality and lifespan of LED lights. Which type of metal shaping you use will depend on your particular metal part needs.However, there are still many customers confused about it. Now we are going to talk about it.

 

  1. Brief introduction

Die casting is the process where metal is heated until molten. While in the molten or liquid state it is poured into a mold or vessel to create a desired shape.Forging is the application of thermal and mechanical energy to steel billets or ingots to cause the material to change shape while in a solid state.

 

  1. Strength of die casting aluminum and cold forging aluminum

 

The advantages of die casting aluminum as below.

* No real upper size limit in casting weight

* Large range of shape choices

*Can be added at the molten stage.

*Tooling is often less expensive than forge dies

*Smaller production “runs” required

*Complicated/complex parts are no problem

Like our THOR series high bay light which using the die casting aluminum, which make the light more architectural design feeling and have competitive price in UFO high bay light market.

 

 

The advantages of cold forging aluminum :

* Generally tougher than alternatives

* Will handle impact better than castings

* The nature of forging excludes the occurence of porosity, shrinkage, cavities and cold pour issues.

* The tight grain structure of forgings making it mechanically strong. There is less need for expensive alloys to attain high strength components.

* The tight grain structure offers great wear resistance without the need to make products “superhard”.

The typical one is our HERO series high bay light which is a good configuration better for heat dissipation.

 

When it comes to which one is better, we need to consider the budget and practical application. Therefore, if you have any question about it welcome to contact our sales engineer.
