Set to be lighter, stronger and better finished in stainless steel is the ‘Everything but the Enclosure’ hardware from EMKA, all thanks to new processes introduced in its manufacturing systems for locks, hinges and swinghandles.
Precision lost wax casting uses a very fine grain sand and ceramic matrix to faithfully recreate small details and to reduce wall thicknesses compared to alternative processes.
The result is higher detail, thinner materials and more complex designs which means greater strength with lower cost. Consequently, slim-line designs and special requirements may be incorporated with stainless steel as a practical economic replacement for zinc die with smaller volumes, less bulk and lighter weight.
Standard 0.25 turn locks, and hinges, as well as custom products are greatly facilitated by this process.
