ANTIQUE Street Lamps™ manufactures street lighting posts and luminaires in a 125,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility in Matamoros, Mexico. This enables us to control the project from beginning to end. We have finely tuned the complete manufacturing process from honing the broad base of suppliers, through knowledge of tooling design, employing a highly trained work force, and state-of-the-art equipment to premier packaging and shipping techniques.
The Aluminum is purchased from a certifiable source and is transported to our facility in a molten condition to provide the highest quality standards. Moving expeditiously from the receiving area, the aluminum is used in the foundry area while maintaining the proper temperature for castings. All tooling used in the casting process is precision checked to comply with the engineering drawings, design specifications and customer needs. A special furnace is utilized to hold molten aluminum in the proper condition for the newly installed Permanent Mold Equipment.
From the Casting Floor the parts are run through a cleaning phase where all the sand is removed, and heavy flash, spew/riser material is removed to prepare for the machining/welding operations. After following prescribed operations, they are sent to follow Quality Control Procedures to properly prepare the surface for final finish with a Polyester Powder Cost as a Standard Finish or sent to outside sources for Special Specified Finish requirements. Luminaire components are sent to the luminaire assembly line where the optical assemblies are installed and tested. All parts are then sent to final packaging and shipping.
ANTIQUE Street Lamps™ can take the customer's photos or drawings of old street lighting posts or other products and turn them into modern day replicas with up-to-date materials and lighting optics.
