Zamak for luminaire manufacturing

Zamak products for the lighting sector

The presence of zamak in the lighting sector is gaining prominence due to its remarkable energy efficiency, among other advantages, such as its versatility and resistance. This zinc alloy requires less energy during its die-casting manufacturing process, resulting in significant savings. In addition, its recyclability also offers a sustainable advantage, contributing to the reduction of environmental impact. 

Zamak has become an efficient choice in the manufacture of luminaires, lamps and a wide variety of components for the lighting industry, as it offers manufacturers and lighting specialists an opportunity to optimise the performance of products, giving them a longer service life while making them a more sustainable option. Understanding the capabilities and applications of zamak in the lighting industry will help you make the best and most favourable decisions for your project. 

Zamak parts for lighting

The zamak versatility allows its application in a wide range of lighting-related products, from technical components to more decorative elements. In other words, die-casting is capable of producing all of these elements:

  • Supports and bases include table lamps, floor lamps or wall lights.
  • Embellishment decorative pieces to add an aesthetic touch.
  • Spotlights and parts where light sources are installed.
  • Ball joints and joints for adjustable lamps or lamps with moving parts.
  • Bulb housings, which protect and support the bulbs.
  • Heat sinks to manage heat, especially in LED lamps.
  • Electrical connectors and terminals for electrical connection.
  • Frames, profiles and structures for LED luminaire panels.
  • Internal accessories, such as gears and adjustment components.
  • Mounting parts, such as brackets, clips and other fixing elements.
  • Tilting or soffit recessed luminaires designed for recessed installations in ceilings or walls, with adjustable orientation capability.
  • Cable grommets to organise and protect cables in lighting installations.

Zamak can be found in various lighting fixtures due to its remarkable ease of assembly and machinability. The flexibility of the zinc present in the zamak alloy allows controlled deformation of the parts to the desired shape. This characteristic makes it possible to join other components more easily with methods such as moulding or riveting.

Why zamak for lighting?

Zamak stands out from other manufacturing options because of its ability to be cast to exceptionally tight tolerances, exceeding other cast metals. By die casting, zamak achieves repeatability down to ± 0.001" on small components, sometimes rivalling conventional machining tolerances. This process reduces or eliminates the need for machining, with net shape or zero-machining being one of its key strengths.

Additionally, zamak offers the possibility of receiving a wide range of high-quality decorative finishes, adding aesthetic value to products made with this material and making this zinc alloy an even more versatile option.
