Sheet metal enclosures manufactured from sheet metal
Aluminium Electronics Enclosure
Here at V and F Sheet Metal we are often asked to manufacture enclosures for a variety of uses. They may often be our customer’s bespoke version of an enclosure that they cannot purchase as a standard enclosure. You know the problem, you have looked in all the standard familiar enclosure directories, trawled the internet and still cannot find the size of enclosure you want or in the right colour or with the right features to suit your product’s requirements. Yes you could buy a standard enclosure and try and modify it by drilling holes or having it re-sprayed but it’s never going to be as good as designing it for yourself and having it made to do the task you need. We do modify standard enclosures for clients when they only want a few units and don’t have the time to design something special but once the quantities increase they will normally want to have an enclosure that does the job just for them. Using Radan sheet metal development software we can help you visualise your design in 3D before committing to manufacturing which can be costly if your design is in error.
19” rack cabinet enclosures are a little different as they have to follow certain size constrictions to ensure standard front panels, chassis, fan units and rear panels can all be sited together and not clash regardless of which manufacturer they have been purchased from. We can help you with that with standard CNC punch tooling and experience of putting together 19” rack enclosures.
Electrical cabinet enclosures are easier as they normally mount on a wall and in isolation from other equipment so size constrictions are not a problem. There is a freedom of design to incorporate hinges, gear plates, anodised or painted front panels, spot welded, screwed or fully welded construction. Again, if you need help please just ask as we have many years of manufacturing this type of enclosure and are always able to come up with ideas if you are stuck.
In conclusion, as with all bespoke sheet metal work we are here to help not just take your order and follow your drawings. We have manufactured so many different enclosures out of sheet metal for people of over many years and are ready and more importantly willing to help you get started and realise your specific manufacturing needs.
