Often an enclosure needs to be customized for a client’s need, these modifications vary significantly from client t client, and our customization services go beyond what you might expect; with in-house CNC machining and local silk screening, we keep your projects on time and cost effective.
Here are a few examples of the services we have provided to help our clients.
Any color you like…no really.
Henry Ford is famous for his saying …” any color you want, so long as you want black” and for years industrial OEM’s were left with the choice of only wanting gray or using a can of paint themselves. Fibox offers you a spectrum of colors to either emphasize or differentiate a specific enclosure or to reinforce your brand identity. Fibox can also provide screen printing right onto the cabinet for logos, warnings, instructions, or other messaging.
A client needed a series of holes drilled around a larger cut-out, a fairly common request for display screens; however, this project also required some of the holes to be countersunk. With the precision of CNC machining, every piece is accurately drilled and countersunk to client’s needs.
DIY or Do It Yet Again?
Customizing an enclosure in-house is always an option, and over the years, many of our clients have tried to customize enclosures themselves for several reasons. To err is human and with any handy work, there are bound to be the occasional mistake. Thankfully we offer precision machining to ensure that all cuts outs will align with your components and hardware every time right out of the package. Below are a few examples from our rogues’ gallery, that we would like to help you avoid.
A little extra ventilation: customized enclosure
A central cut out at the base of an enclosure is a fairly common need, however, in this case, the client’s drill took out a little extra which would compromise the cabinet from the elements, our CNC machines made small work of this cut-out and left room to spare.
No it’s not threaded:
In this example, a client has a series of cut-outs with four smaller cut-outs framing the larger. You can imagine the precession needed to ensure each cut aligns perfectly to ensure a secure fit and a tight seal. Also, they notice the distortion to the gasket; this has been avoided after the client the reordered with our customization service.
Usually, the costs associated for us to help are in line with what you would spend to hand-cut a few dozen or so enclosures (not including the cost of redo’s). If you wish to learn more, please contact your Fibox representative to answer any of your questions.
