CNC Milling:

Holes for components such as light pipes can be milled into the extrusion.

Please note we will require the following information:

  • Full list of the components being used
  • Dimensioned drawing. Preferred formats are STEP, IGES, DXF or SolidWorks files but we will work from a hand drawn sketch

Surface Finish:

Anodised Colour Options: Clear (SIlver), Black, Blue, Red, Green. Please call to discuss other options.

The maximum length of extrusion that can be anodised is 1Mtr

Anti-corrosion coatings: Surtec 650 or Iridite NCP

Masking available upon request.

Artwork:

Artwork can be applied to the enclosure in one of 2 methods:

  • Full-colour Digital Print
  • Laser Marking

Please note we will require the following information:

  • For best results, we will need you to provide us with logos and icons in a vector format.
  • A list of all fonts used.

Material Options

All of our standard end plates are Aluminium, however we can supply end plates in Zintec if you require a thinner plate or from acrylic if you need Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connectivity

Material Options - Thickness:

Aluminium:

Standard sizes: 1.5mm (E-Case A, B & C) and 2mm (E-Case D) thickness.

Thinner end plates, down to 0.9mm
Thicker: end plates, up to 12mm

Zintec: - Can be manufactured from 0.7mm up to 3mm

Acrylic: - Can be manufactured from 3mm to 12mm

Cut-outs:

Depending on the thickness of the end plate – see below, we will either CNC Punch, Mill or Laser cut the panel. Holes can be straight through, counter-bored or counter-sunk.

Please note we will require the following:

  • A full list of the components being used.
  • Dimensioned drawing. Preferred formats are STEP, IGES, DXF or SolidWorks files but we will work from a hand drawn sketch

Flanged Plates:

The end plates can also be folded 90 degrees to act as a foot or for surface mounting

Plates up to a thickness of 5mm can be cut and folded

Oversize Options:

Standard end plates are the same width and height as the extrusion but we can manufacture the plate oversize

  • This could be so that the front plate is used as a fixing option in a control panel
  • The panel can be taller with a cut out to act as a handle
  • To sit below the extrusion to act as a foot or shaped to form feet

Sub-Panels:

On end plates thicker than 3mm we can cut through and recess a hole complete with clinch fasteners – see below, to fit a sub-panel.

Please note we will require the following:

  • A full list of the components being used.
  • Dimensioned drawing. Preferred formats are STEP, IGES, DXF or SolidWorks files but we will work from a hand drawn sketch

Clinch Fasteners:

A range of bushes, nuts and stand-offs can be added either as a means to mount your PCB or additional components or a grounding point.

Please note we will require the following:

  • A full list of the fastenings being used.
  • Dimensioned drawing. Preferred formats are STEP, IGES, DXF or SolidWorks files but we will work from a hand drawn sketch

Surface Finish Options - Brushed:

All end plates 3mm or thicker are made from raw aluminium and will, therefore, go through a brushing (graining) process prior to the surface finish is applied.

Finish:

Andodised colour options: Silver, Black, Blue, Red, Green. Please call to discuss other options.

Anti-corrosion coatings: Surtec 650, Iridite NCP
