Simalex Manufacturing Co. is pleased to announce that it has won the contract to manufacture two pressure die cast components for Midnite Solar’s leading edge MPPT solar charge controller. The two aluminum components form the structural housing and heat sink of the rugged controllers and Simalex was chosen for its consistent quality, reliable service and fair pricing.
Simalex has constructed individual molds for each component and began casting production immediately thereafter. By cutting the mold tooling from the highest quality steels and utilizing the Company’s advanced casting techniques, Simalex expects to supply Midnite Solar with superior components for their highend products for many years to come.
“Being selected to die cast these integral components for Midnite Solar gives Simalex an excellent opportunity to showcase our manufacturing capabilities, especially since we competed against off shore suppliers and won,” comments Fred Lyhne Jr. Simalex CEO.
