An on-line resource has been established by electro-mechanical solutions provider, Deltron Emcon, to simplify the process of purchasing customised aluminium boxes. From initial design to machined component, the service is said to reduce lead-time and associated costs by up to 50 per cent.
Managing director of Deltron Emcon, Bob Davis, explained: When purchasing aluminium boxes the process typically involves a series of machining and finishing sub-contractors, who can take between four and six-weeks to provide a finished enclosure. Now, purchasers can get a machined box in two-weeks for any market, from medical to broadcast. It also helps to eliminate potential errors caused by dealing with multiple sub-contractors.
The site currently offers first-stage customisation with access to Deltron Emcons design team, who provide a 3D SolidWorks drawing of each design prior to manufacture. A full finishing service, including silk screening, will follow later in the year.
