Aside from stainless steel,
What are Diecast Aluminum Enclosures?
Diecasting is a popular method in metal shaping. Its process includes putting a molten metal in a closed
Aluminum has a natural level of RFI/EMI shielding making them suitable
for any health care and medical use instruments.
With molten metal forming the exact shape of the die, the diecasting process is ideal for
those who require complex parts.
th diecasting, a moltent metal is forced into a die to form a specific shape. This
process is ideal for making intricate parts of customized mechanism of an electrical
enclosure. Another advantage of using diecasting technique is it can give you an
m with attractive surface finish because it results to a metal having thinner and
Diecasting an aluminum alloy entails a higher cost and it is more applicable for high
volume production of aluminum electrical enclosures. This i
s the only disadvantage this
Extruded Aluminum Enclosures
Extrusion process puts aluminum into an extrusion press and it is forced through a die
using a hydraulic ram. The result of the metal alloy is a very long part where it can be
cut using a machine when needed.
Electrical Enclsoures made with extruded aluminum alloy are best used in applications
where there is a need for ingress protection from dust and water. They can be used and
found in both indoor and outdoor ind
ustrial applications. They can be most commonly
found in medical applications, information systems, sensors, and data systems.
The main advantage of an extruded aluminum enclosure is that it can make any
installation efficient and faster. It has
very good heat dissipating characters making
extruded aluminums very suitable in high temperatures while giving protection to PCB
Unlike the diecast process, extrusion can also product limited variety of shapes and it
has some co
nstraints in assembly methods.
