Almost any electronic device for normal and safe operation needs a protective case. Well designed and built in practice, it will be the main reason for reliability in your day to day work. Making metal enclosures is a rather complicated process. Especially if not steel is used as a base, but aluminum. Do not forget about the accuracy of the case so that it does not negatively affect the normal operation of the device or device.
For what devices are the cases made
Metal can perfectly fulfill the role of the body of almost any device. It is durable and difficult to destroy. It can be painted in any attractive or suitable color. Take a complex form, but still perform the main function. Most often, a housing is required for the following devices:
- a variety of commercial equipment;
- electrical panels for equipment;
- bank payment terminals;
- unique devices and devices that require a protective case.
The metal case can act as a frame, on which numerous parts can be mounted later. The main thing is not to forget about insulation in order to prevent electric current on the metal case.
Steel or aluminum
The two most common metals can compete with each other about equally. The main selection factors should be the final operating conditions. So, the following devices are more typical for metal cases:
- Radioelectronic and telecommunication equipment.
- Medical technology and optical devices.
- Fire and security alarm at the facility.
- Electrical stationary equipment.
The steel case perfectly resists negative operating factors. Can be transported regularly over short and long distances. If he subsequently regularly comes into contact with high humidity. In contrast, aluminum is used primarily for the assembly of industrial electronics. It is operated indoors and serves primarily to store and access individual components.
Important: the industrial manufacture of the enclosures guarantees the accuracy of each product. Machine cutting and welding of metal does not allow inaccuracies. Even if it is necessary to create a complex structure, the entire batch will be distinguished by high-precision results.
