Sheet metal stainless steel enclosures fabircated and polished
When manufacturing sheet metal housings that need to survive for many years outside there is only one real cost effective soultion and it’s stainless steel. When you add in the agressive environment of being fixed to a lorry with salt spray and oil contamination it’s a must. Stainless steel can be worked in the same way as mild steel but it does have a higher wear rate of cutting tooling due to its increased hardness. Fabricating stainless steel enclosures using TiG welding techniques is easy and the quality of the weld is superb. These particular boxes have all the corners seam welded up so that they are water tight. The welds are cleaned back to the original parent sheet and then the whole enclosure is polished to give a pleasing finish.
