Metal enclosures manufacturer METCASE has extended its custom front panels service with state of the art digital printing. CMYK digital printing technology enables METCASE to print legends, logos and photo quality graphics on to front panels – without the set-up costs associated with traditional methods.
Digital printing is also available on complete enclosures but has so far proved most popular with customers requiring custom front panels. METCASE can manufacture custom front panels in aluminium or steel – machined and fully finished with apertures for LEDs, displays, switches etc.
The service includes CNC punching of holes and cutouts; drilling and tapping; fitting of inserts, studs and earth tags. The company also offers linishing of aluminium panels for a blemish-free finish; natural and colour anodising; powder or wet painting in custom colours; engraving for heavy duty applications.
METCASE can supply 3D models in STEP, SAT and X_T formats so customers can see how their front panel will look prior to manufacture. The company can also work to the customer’s own 2D drawings or 3D models. For digital printing, high resolution files are required.
The METCASE front panel service offers high quality front panels at competitive prices for batches as small as 10 units (depending on the size of the panels). METCASE also manufactures fully customised rack cases and instrument enclosures. Services include CNC machining, custom-sized versions of standard METCASE housings, bespoke enclosures and sheet metal work.
