Pressed Metal Components for Automotive Lighting Solutions

Clamason produce lighting components for tier 1 customers around the world.

In the automotive industry, metal pressings are frequently used to construct various types of lighting products – such as headlamps, taillamps, and turn signals. This includes housing, reflectors, and other structural elements of the lights; like brackets, clips and holders, for example.

With lamp technology ranging from Halogen and Xenon to LED, plus the development of adaptive lighting systems for a safer driving experience at night, car lighting is a fast-paced and challenging environment. By partnering with Clamason, the efficiency of leading-edge lighting solutions can be accelerated, helping to bring all-new technology to the production line.

With our specialist knowledge, we help clients to gain a competitive advantage.


By re-designing die cast components into a pressed metal equivalent, customers can benefit from significant cost-savings – not to mention extended tooling life.

This is especially true for traditional die cast heat sinks. With Clamason’s expert help, the heat produced in state-of-the-art car lighting can be stabilised by a new, pressed metal component – which also benefits from more economical production, design flexibility, weight reduction and improved surface finish.

From heatshields to retaining clips and EMC shields to heat sinks, Clamason leverage various material types to help customers achieve the required specification – including zinc-coated steels, pre black-painted zinc coated steels, stainless steel and aluminium.

Thanks to years of industry experience and high quality standards, you can trust Clamason to produce the calibre of pressings required to support leading-edge automotive technology.

This includes passive safety, infotainment, clusters and much, much more.
