Aluminium is one of the metals which has found a lot of applications in construction and automotive industries. But aluminium usage is constantly increasing in other sectors as well, communication & tele-communication is one of those industries where applications of aluminium and alloys are growing. Below are some of the examples –


    Aluminium alloy conductors are used for communication cables. Generally, aluminium cable will be substantially cheaper. However, copper cable is more ductile and less susceptible to electrical contact problems and thus offers a greater margin of safety than a corresponding aluminium cable. Aluminium-iron-magnesium is a great conductor and currently its use in the cable industry is increasing because of its light weight nature and cost advantage.


    Apart from Kevlar, the other material that often used in space is Aluminium as it is light in weight. On its own, aluminium is not incredibly strong but when combined into alloys with other metals into it becomes much stronger. Aluminium alloys are often strong and lightweight enough to be functional in space structures and satellites. Aluminium is used for the shutters on the windows of the International Space Station in order to protect the windows from impacts. These windows already are made with glass thicker than panes of glass on earth and often with twice as many panes. However, the additional aluminium shutters guarantee the safety of the astronauts within.


    The telecommunication accessory is a kind of cavity shell accessory of communication equipment. Telecommunication equipment includes wired telecom equipment and wireless telecom equipment. Wired telecom equipment mainly includes serial communication, professional bus type communication, industrial Ethernet communication, and conversion equipment between various communication protocols. The wireless telecom equipment is mainly wireless AP, Wireless network bridge, wireless network card, wireless lightning arrester, antenna, and other equipment. These usually find applications in telecommunication base stations, automobile, electronics etc.


    Telecommunication cavity processing adopts aluminium alloy as raw material, and after accurate calculation by advanced CNC processing equipment system, the product is more durable and safer. The products processed by the CNC communication cavity can be accurate to micro-millimetre units. In terms of CNC telecommunication cavity processing customization, EMP has a professional technical production team and advanced production and processing equipment to produce high-precision, high-quality products.


    The manufacturing process of the die-cast aluminium radiator is complicated, with multiple production processes such as melting, die-casting, deburring, pressure testing, electrophoresis, powder coating, etc. It is precisely because it is easy to be extruded and formed into various shapes, so the appearance is novel and beautiful, and the decoration is strong. Using aluminium alloy material, good thermal conductivity, surpassing the copper-aluminium composite radiator. This has wide range of applications in 5G equipment, power electronics, telecom, various power supplies, chassis, & other industries as well.

Apart from these, aluminium die-casting alloys like ADC12, A380, ADC10 are used in below mentioned applications in the telecommunication industry -

  • Bluetooth enabled items
  • Parts for wireless devices
  • Voice command components
  • Satellite communication parts
  • Telecommunication components
  • Switching devices and equipment in Telecommunications
  • Multimedia transmission products
  • RF equipment
  • GPS Products
