In this post we are going to briefly analyze the characteristics of zamak and to highlight its advantages in the production of components for electronic products. After that, we will review some components explaining how choosing zamak has made them more beneficial compared with similar products manufactured with other materials.
Industrialization of the product is a very delicate phase in the process of production of zinc alloy die casts: in fact it is in this phase that, after receiving the order from the customer, all the procedures that are necessary to start mass production are defined.
The versatility of zinc alloys can be tested in some sectors more than in others. A sector that offers great creative and design freedom is household appliances: in fact Zamak components for household appliances contribute to make the entire object unique, exclusive and immediately recognizable.
In this article we present some case studies relative to components made of zinc alloys for doors and windows. Zinc alloys are a perfectly suitable material for the production of components for the building industry and, among the various fields of application, doors and windows are certainly a growing industry with interesting developments.
Zinc is a material that can be employed in several manufacturing sectors, including the branch of small appliances. The following post describes the main advantages of the use of zinc for the production of small appliances components, specifically of coffee machines components.
The term product design defines the process of designing a new product that has to be marketed in a specific business, taking into account not only its aesthetical characteristics but also its functions and its production cycle. Indeed, the product must meet the final user expectations while simultaneously be compliant with the production process.
In this post we are going to describe the business philosophy of functional beauty. Starting from this philosophy, Bruschi created Nespresso KitchenAid Artisan 5KES0503, a design coffee machine that led the company to the victory of the prestigious European Zinc Die Casting Competition for design in 2016.
In this post we are going to list and define the most common surface treatments for zinc die casting and their effects, and we are going to present three case studies in which the application of a specific treatment helped in improving the overall performance of the component.
In this post we are going to describe what is meant with surface finishing and we will explain why it is important to take them in consideration from the designing phase of a component, giving some advice for the optimization of the most critical points.
