Investing in custom enclosures

Metcase has invested a six-figure sum in three new CNC punching, forming and milling machines for creating the next generation of standard and customised 19in rack cases, 19in mini-racks, desktop and portable instrument enclosures.

Metcase’s marketing director, Robert Cox, said: “This significant investment in new technology ensures we remain at the forefront in the design and manufacture of leading-edge metal enclosures for advanced electronics. Our customers can now order even higher quality metal enclosures, customised faster than ever—fully finished and ready for the installation of components.”

The new machines let the company produce superior customised versions of its most complex models, such as its Technomet instrument enclosures and Technomet 19in mini-racks. All Metcase enclosures can be fully customised. Dealing with a single-source supplier ensures quality, full accountability, faster delivery and reduced administration. Services include bespoke sizes, custom front panels, CNC machining, fixings and inserts, painting/finishing and photo-quality digital printing of graphics, legends and logos.
