Tuesday, October 3, 2017Categories: Enclosure Customization

An off-the-shelf enclosure may work for some, but certainly not for all. When a product needs to stand out, custom enclosures offer Buckeye Shapeform’s customers something unique.

Here are some frequently asked questions about custom enclosures:

What silk-screening and graphic overlay services do you offer?

At Buckeye Shapeform, we can apply any design our customers provide to a custom enclosure. Single and multicolor silk-screening services enhance products, while custom silk-screened labels identify component plug-ins and other controls. Clients are also able to add a fun element with a graphic overlay of their company logos.

What types of hole punching and vent patterns do you offer?

Buckeye Shapeform keeps an inventory of more than 600 punches that range from basic patterns to highly complex ones. Our punch inventory includes:

  • Single D
  • Double D
  • Round
  • Obround
  • Vent
  • Square
  • Rectangular
  • Trapezoid

Can I purchase fasteners and stand-offs from you?

What other enclosure customizations do you make?

Buckeye Shapeform manufactures internal chassis plates to its clients’ specifications. A chassis plate holds electronic components to make insertion and extraction easier. A custom enclosure with internal chassis plates will hold components in place and slide out for easy access.

An enclosure design can include removable sides and top for even easier access to internal workings or grooves on the inside of a case so PCB boards stack neatly inside. Additionally, Buckeye Shapeform makes sure all enclosures meet industry specifications for strength and safety.
