Aluminium sheet metal electronics enclosure
Aluminium electronics enclosures such as the type shown here are often being manufactured in our workshops. These particular sheet metal enclosures are for a lighting control project and are manufactured in batches of 25-50 at a time. Although they can seem quite simple they usually employ many of the main manufacturing areas that we specialize in namely, CNC punching, sheet metal edge de-burring, CNC bending, counter-sinking and bush, stud or stand-off insertion. These sheet metal enclosures need to have a clean and scratch free cosmetic outer surface. This can be achieved by using aluminium sheet metal with a peelable plastic film to help protect the soft aluminium surface from scratches during CNC punching and movement within the workshop. To prevent CNC bending block tool marks on the outer face of the enclosures we use a heavy plastic film which helps to shield the sheet metal surface from the pressure points on the die block. All these techniques help to present a clean and attractive component to the final user of the product.
With these particular electronics enclosures after they have been manufactured they are silver anodised and silk screened before being assembled.
