Metal enclosures

Individually-manufactured metal enclosures

We will gladly manufacture an metal enclosure to your own specifications. Individually-manufactured metal enclosures are very sturdy and provide a high level of stability and impact strength. Their high chemical and temperature resistance makes them ideal for use in rough environmental conditions. They also offer good opportunities for EMC screening and conductive connections (for VDE, the German electrotechnology association).

Small production quantities can be manufactured less expensively than individually-manufactured plastic enclosures. Also, changes to the enclosure design can be carried out at low cost. In addition to numerous surface upgrading processes, the enclosure can be given an individual look by means of printing and engraving.

Panel enclosures

The demand for panel enclosures is growing all the time, so we are providing more information on this type of metal enclosure. Panel enclosures are becoming more and more popular – for example, they are used to allow the monitoring and analysis of certain manufacturing processes. Many customers are very interested in having their own machine and system control unit, fitted with a large display.

A panel enclosure consists of the following parts:

  • front panel

  • input device (touch screen, membrane keypad, etc), and

  • rear-fitted cover made of stainless steel, aluminium or sheet steel, galvanised, chromated, anodised, lacquered or powder-coated as required

An enclosure of this type is generally fitted in a switch cabinet, a wall, or even directly inside the machine. It is important to point out that touch screens are especially popular, so attention must always be drawn to the availability of this technology.

 

BOPLA's panel enclosures are always adapted to our customers' individual requirements. For some sizes we already have design data on the basis of standard display sizes which we can relatively easily modify and adapt to customers' needs. Of course, in addition to the design and manufacture of panel enclosures, BOPLA can offer many more services in connection with enclosures, for example making break-outs for connectors, or air vents for heat extraction, printing, the assembly of all components, or sophisticated packaging for the end product.

Design data already exist for some standard sizes. We can relatively easily modify these to meet your specific needs – in some cases, samples are already available.
