Why can Zippo Lighter catch fire in strong wind!
ZIPPO is men’s favorite metal lighter. Zippo’s windproof technology can meet the demand of ignition at any time in any bad weather.
ZIPPO’s fuel is a very stable petroleum extract. The flame generated by its combustion is not only safe and reliable, but also extremely clean.
In 1932, American George bresday founded Zippo company in Bradford County, Pennsylvania. At that time, the company mainly represented the sales of cyklon lighters produced in Austria in the United States.
At the beginning of the next year, he improved the appearance design of cyklon and began to produce his own lighter products. The first Zippo was born. The product is named Zippo because bresday likes the word zipper and believes that the sound of opening and closing the cover of a lighter is similar to the pulling and closing of a zipper.
George bresday created the Zippo lighter, which represents male beauty, light sensitivity and heat. In addition to its practicability and windproof beauty, each Zippo is a work of art with collection value.
Zippo lighter has a 0.027 inch thick chrome plated copper cover and a 0.018 inch thick stainless steel lining to form a solid shell of Zippo lighter, which is welded from the upper cover and the lower cover through hinges.
The inner liner of Zippo lighter is made of stainless steel, which is composed of windproof wall, pulley, rivet, cam, cotton, cotton pad, screw, flint and other parts.
The windproof wall and unique air hole design of Zippo Lighter perfectly ensure that each Zippo lighter can keep burning in strong wind environment. In fact, ZIPPO has such strong wind proof ability, which is also the reason why it has such strong wind proof ability.
The production of Zippo lighter is divided into two parts: shell and inner core, which are processed separately and finally assembled together.
Zippo lighter housing. First, the copper plate is pressed into the bottom and top of the lighter by the machine;
Put on the hinge (hinge) connecting the top and bottom of the shell, and then put on the bottom shell of the lighter;
They are welded together by electrode welding (spot welding);
The welded lighter shell will be collected and then sectioned. After simple polishing, electroplate the copper lighter shell, which will be more beautiful.
After electroplating, wait for the inner core to complete and form a complete lighter.
Zippo Lighter inner core. The shaping machine presses the steel into the shape of the inner core;
The manipulator puts the flint tube connecting the diaphragm into the inner core to fix the flint;
Fix the inner core and long pipe with epoxy resin (commonly known as heat insulation glue);
Manually divide the fire wheel (flint wheel) and place it neatly on the disc;
The manipulator places the fire wheel (flint wheel) on the assembly fixture, and then puts on the cam, spring sheet and rivet;
The machine buckles the previously made inner liner shell (inner core) on it and fixes it with rivets;
The machine will put in cotton core, cotton and felt, and fix the spring sheet rivet while putting in the cotton core;
Next, put in Flint thimbles and fix them;
After the above is completed, carry out the fire test of fire dragon (flint wheel) and look at the sparks!
Finally, the shell and inner core are assembled manually for the final opening and closing test;
The above is the whole production process of Zippo Lighter;
