The third Monday in February is Presidents’ Day. Washington’s Birthday was a United States federal holiday.
This holiday, celebrated on the third Monday of February in honor of George Washington, our first President of the United States. Now, this day is known as Presidents Day, and is often an occasion to remember all the U.S. presidents, not just George Washington’s actual birthday, February 22 or Abraham Lincoln, whose birthday is February 12th. The term “Presidents’ Day” used to change the holiday into a day honoring multiple American presidents.
Recently, the February holiday is a day in which many retail stores, especially furniture stores and car dealerships, hold discount sales. Until the late 1980s, banks and corporate businesses closed on this day, similar to present corporate and bank practices on Memorial Day or Christmas Day. With the late 1980s advertising push to rename the holiday, more retail businesses are staying open during the holiday each year, and, as on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Veterans Day and Columbus Day. Many colleges and universities hold regular classes and operations on Presidents’ Day. Most U.S. Postal Service delivery services offer regular service on the day.
Happy Presidents’ Day

The main purpose of lighting fixtures or parts is to create artificial light. A lighting fixture consist of the light source, light reflector that directs the light to a certain point, an opening (with lens or without lenses), the light housing for protection, an electrical counterweight, and a cord connecting to the power source. Lighting fixtures can be classified as indoor lighting fixtures and outdoor lighting fixtures.
Before the introduction to an aluminum die casting company, lighting parts are made by welding pieces together. This process is costly, time consuming, and labor extensive. Nowadays, lighting parts are manufactured by die casting, a process wherein molten metal is forced into mold cavities. Die casting is beneficial if you are producing large quantities of small to medium sized lighting parts with good details,
Aluminum is lightweight and sturdy, a material often used to make lighting parts because of its durability and good thermal and electrical properties. Die cast aluminum lighting parts are made faster because they can be produced in net shape, meaning there are no welding or drilling methods needed after. Holes can be added to the mold cavities. These holes are necessary for the installation of covers or lids.
Die cast aluminum lighting parts are used in medical offices and parking garages for lighting fixtures. They are also used for bullet lighting fixtures, street traffic lights, outdoor and wall lighting fixtures. Furthermore, there are special light parts made for Aluminum lighting fixtures used for automobile lighting, marine lighting, medical lighting, and aerospace lighting.
Die Casting Aluminum Boxes are used in many ways. How are Die Casting Aluminum Box Enclosures used? These boxes are used for retail product packaging because they can easily get grounded since aluminum can conduct electricity. These are also used as enclosures for parts which should be protected from sudden impact, dust, or moisture. These boxes are also used as a means of blocking away radio waves and frequency which may affect the capacities of the electronic components. It offers protection to the electronic components by providing RF or EMI shielding.
Aside from these uses, a die casting aluminum box enclosure is also utilized as a “grounding plane” or as a common electrical circuit for the electrical machinery inside the box. Die casting aluminum boxes can also be used as storing equipment since they are durable enough to contain materials when one is out on a road trip. These boxes can be manufactured huge so these can be used at the back of pick up trucks. But they can also be crafted in a small size so they can be used in the home as storage for magazine and comic book collections. These can also be used as mailboxes which can survive the harsh weather for a couple of years. Die casting aluminum boxes are also used as large transportation enclosures for both equipment and animals.

Today is Monday the first working day of the week. Friday this week is February 2nd, and is celebrated as a fun way to predict weather. This day is celebrated each year on February 2nd. Groundhog Day was a traditional day used to forecast the remaining winter weather. Happy Groundhog Day 2018
According to folklore, if it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day, then spring will come early; if it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow, and the winter weather will persist for six more weeks. This fun tradition does not accurately predict the weather, but fun, all the same.

Brackets are used for mounting electronic devices. Electronic devices are usually fragile and need a single fall before being permanently damaged like aluminum guitar amplifiers. Another problem is that many of these items are usually mounted onto walls to save space and to increase their output. A good method to solve this problem is by simply putting these items on top of other surfaces. However, this reduces the quality of their output. The best solution is to purchase aluminum brackets to safely secure the electronic items on the wall.
Aluminum brackets are L-shaped pieces of metal that are used in pairs to make a surface for mounting electronics. These are oftentimes used in mounting speakers and other sound related electronics. The more recent application for this item is the mounting of computer monitors and flat screen televisions onto the wall. The variety of brackets that are used for this purpose have a swivel feature which allows the user to adjust the screen.
When purchasing aluminum brackets, it is important to first determine the product on which the bracket would be used on. This would dictate the type of bracket that could be used, the weight carrying capacity of the bracket, and the features that could be present in the bracket. Although this may seem as a hindrance for most people, it actually is not. Brackets are usually labelled with the products that they are compatible with so that customers do not have to bring their electronic items along with them. Also, brackets may come with the package of the electronic item being purchased making it redundant to purchase brackets in the first place.
Methods for making Aluminum Automotive Parts. Every single day, thousands of aluminum auto parts are made and produced by different auto companies: Chevrolet, Honda, Nissan, Toyota, and more. Many automotive parts are manufactured by net shape to save costs on additional labor and wasted materials. The metal aluminum is often used for car parts or auto parts for they are only a third of the weight of steel parts. Machining holes into the aluminum during production is easier. Indeed, aluminum proved to be the better metal compared to other metals because of its many beneficial properties.
To create aluminum automotive parts, the metal has to first undergo the die casting manufacturing process. First, the aluminum is being liquefied. The liquid metal will then be injected into the molds to take up the shape as dictated by the mold. Around 1,500 PSI to 30,000 PSI is applied, so that the liquid is forced into the mold perfectly. This will ensure accuracy in its dimensions. Afterwards, the molds are set aside to cool and once open, the aluminum automotive parts are perfectly finished.
Heatsinks are important in all electronic products or applications because they remove the heat to avoid overheating and malfunctions. These aluminum heatsinks are designed in such a way that the heat coming from the electrical component parts that are prone to heat production will be transferred to them. Since heat sinks are very important in many electronic products, manufacturers are designing cheaper and faster ways to produce them. One of the popular materials used in heat sinks is aluminum and these heat sinks are die casted in aluminum.
Aluminum is a strong metal that is perfect in making heat sinks. It is also easy to mold but very durable and can withstand high temperatures. The abundance of aluminum also makes it possible to produce cheaper products as compared to other metals. Die-casting is one of the best ways to make heat sinks. With diecasting, detailed heat sinks are produced in a short period of time, thus mass production is possible. Once heat sinks are produced, they are just mounted on the printed circuit board or the PC board of the electronic products. With this, the diversion of heat is now possible so as to prevent malfunction and can lead to longer lifespan of the application.
