What is viable and what is not with 3D printed enclosures

Unless you've been under a rock for the last 10 years, you will have heard about 3D printing. But many engineers are still wondering how they can use it for anything other than prototyping. However, 3D printing can provide a cost effective way to construct custom enclosures and this article will explain how, when and why you should consider using 3D printing for your product.

New technology is driving new ways to customise electronic enclosures

Not that long ago, any customisation offered by enclosure manufacturers tended to be limited to drilling a few holes for connectors or machining apertures for displays. If you were looking for any additional customisation – whether that was painting, anodising, silk screen printing of legends and logos or EMC shielding – then you had to contend with a long chain of suppliers in which even minor problems could cause long delays or result in enclosures having to be redesigned.

Pre-empting and overcoming obsolescence

New Electronics talks to Debbie Rowland, Sales Manager at Charcroft, an independent, specialist distributor based in the UK, about how obsolescence management has and is changing and how organisations can better prepare and plan for obsolescence.

Boxes of tricks: Choosing the right enclosure for your design

Metal or plastic? Choosing an enclosure is not as straightforward as some might think, so what are the options when you are looking to house your precious electronic designs? Robert Cox, sales and marketing director of OKW Enclosures, gave his opinions on the pros and cons of the major enclosure materials of construction.

3D printing allows designers to think outside the box

The first thing to clarify is that 3d printing is really the buzzword that has captured the imagination – a better description that includes a broader set of processes is additive layer manufacturing (alm), and these processes are rapidly gaining widespread acceptance.

Coating finishes for moulded enclosures

Plastic enclosures have many benefits: many suppliers serve the market with a great number of standard products available in different styles and sizes at affordable prices, reducing time to market for new projects. The units are lightweight and allow complex shapes and features to be easily incorporated into the design. They can also be easily modified to accept displays, switches, connectors and other hardware.
