Zinc Die Casting Manufacturing in Emergency Vehicles

Zinc die casting is a prominent method of manufacturing using zinc alloy. The International Zinc Association recently released a video displaying the variety of uses zinc manufacturing has in emergency vehicles. Emergency vehicles are pushed to their limits every day responding to events such as house fires, riots, and natural disasters. Parts on these emergency vehicles need to be designed using materials with high levels of strength and durability to withstand the wear and tear emergency response teams go through every day. Zinc die cast components make an obvious choice in these applications.

 

Along with the strength and durability to deal with emergencies, zinc die casting provides an aesthetic appeal being a substrate material for highly decorative finishes, such as chrome plating or powder coating. Zinc die cast parts such as a spotlight head housing, as featured in the video, presents smooth curves and a sleek design. It is a part that needs to withstand variable amounts of different wind and weather conditions, while also having an appealing look from its zinc die cast design.

 

Another feature of zinc die cast parts is the major cost reduction. Zinc die casting can eliminate the need for costly machining by with near net shape designs with tighter tolerances than other competing materials. If you are looking for a way to find cost effective manufacturing for your part, consider zinc die casting. Contact one of our zinc die casting experts at websales@decoprod.com.
