Full Types of Sheet Metal Enclosures
As a world-class OEM, we can create enclosures of all customized styles, including rackmounts, U shapes, L shapes, as well as other customized shapes for our customers,
√ Rackmount Sheet Metal Enclosures
Rackmount enclosures are cases specially designed to hold or store equipment in a rack configuration.
We can also help our clients to fully customize Rack Mount enclosures for optimal ventilation, ergonomics, accessibility, cable management, etc. Depending on the enclosure’s design and application, we can add components like fasteners, handles, brackets, etc.
√ U-Shape Sheet Metal Enclosure
The U-shape enclosures are very versatile and can be used for several applications, like storing electronics.
At RapidDone, we can customize them with different ports, vents, and mounting options to suit your needs. We can also drill in the holes needed for fasteners and other components, so you can easily install and mount them.
√ L-sheet Metal Enclosures
RapidDone can create L-shaped enclosures with an accessible design that works better in tight spaces. We can also add various components like handles for opening the enclosure and rubber feet to help dampen any resulting vibrations.
√ 5-Sided Sheet Metal Enclosure
RapidDone customized 5-sided enclosures are the perfect, accessible protective housing for storing electronic components. We can create them out of any material and to any given size.
Additionally, we can customize the open size by adding fasteners or hinges to form a door. It all depends on the customer’s specifications.
√ IP Rated Sheet Metal Enclosures
RapidDone can create IP-rated enclosures for electrical panels, junction boxes, and sensitive electronics housings, covering all IP65, IP66, and IP67.
We offer our customers a wide variety of materials for fabricating their sheet metal enclosures. Thanks to our robust supply chain, we can source and deliver almost any material our clients need for creating their enclosures.
Aluminum is an excellent, corrosion-resistant material for creating sheet metal enclosures. It is also lightweight, so it is well-suited for making enclosures.
However, it has a low structural stiffness, so you may need to use thick gauges for parts that require high strength.
√ Stainless Steel
Stainless Steel is a premium high-strength material for making enclosures. It has greater corrosion resistance than most other metals, meaning its surface finish will last longer.
Additionally, it also has a high impact and tensile strength. This lets the enclosure protect the internal components better from spills and drops.
Galvanneal is a great industrial material for creating long-lasting enclosures for operating in adverse conditions. The anodized coating protects the steel and extends its working life, especially in wet conditions.
√ Other Matherials:
Other popular materials include Copper, Cold Rolled Steel, Perforated Sheet Metal, etc.
RapidDone provides several finishing options for sheet metal enclosures. These finishing options will give the part a better final look and provide the surface with an additional layer of protection.
These options are:
- Powder Coating
- Bead blasting
- Electroplating (Gold and Silver)
Our Manufacturing Process on Sheet Metal Enclosure
Similar to our sheet metal bracket manufacturing, there is a streamlined process for manufacturing our enclosures, this will ensure to deliver the best products to our clients.
1. Note the OEM Design Requirement
The first thing we do is to go over the plans and provide feedback to the client. Using the plans provided by the customer, we provide quotes, lead times, and other important information.
We can also help the clients to optimize their designs so that we can manufacture the enclosures cost-effectively.
2. Create The Manufacturing Plan
Next, our production engineers create and plan out the manufacturing process for the enclosure. They decide how best the product can be manufactured to save the customer time and money.
3. Manufacture it With Proper Processes
At this point, the plans go into the workshop, where they are brought to life by the machinist. Our workshops use cutting-edge CNC machines to deliver the highest product quality consistently.
4. Quality Check
The last step in the manufacturing process is the quality check. Before the enclosures go out to the customers, our quality experts carefully review each to spot any manufacturing defects.
Our stringent quality checks ensure that no defective products make it out of our factory to the customer!
