There are companies that does not mind improving their
graphics department. It is akin to a car without a gas. However, there are
companies that chose to be always better when it comes to this certain
department. I helped them come with a better final product because of the skill
set the graphics department will bring to the company. What’s more interesting
is that the details the company wants to have for their enclosure can be
greatly illustrated by a well-taken cared of graphics department.
Like this example. When it comes to designing enclosures,
the process cannot be as simple as just adding more ink to the printing of text
on the enclosure. There are specific equipment that needs to have the assurance
that a second hit is already applied on the right location on the enclosure.
Just a millimeter half off and the text will already have a very shadowy
effect. This actually beats the purpose and it will now have a shadowy effect
With this in mind, companies require the extensive training
of some of their design engineers and their printing technicians to make sure
that the precision of printing and design is achieved whenever there is an
engineering project. Throughout each and every piece of product being
manufactured, the precision should always be assured. Regardless if the
production runs on one piece or even thousands of units.
There are specific pieces of some of the electronics
equipment that are initially required to properly invest on part of the
company. The expenditure of additional equipment should be a no-brainer for the
companies that produces quality enclosure. The improvement of their production
equipment would mean that they will get a higher right precision and they can
get consistent high results during every production of the product. They can
also make sure that they can reduce variables that can account for some of the
printing errors they can encounter.
For example, there is a specially designed printing lab
designed to maintain different atmospheric variables such as humidity and
temperature. Also including the dust saturation that can put the production of
the enclosures at great risk. Also, it should be noted that in making sure that
top quality is prioritized, the equipment that are being used and the processes
should maintain a perfect balance.
Companies choose to make this kind of difference to their
graphics department to make sure that they only deliver the best product and
services to their customers. But not risking the customers’ satisfaction. These
companies are confident with their prices together with the right level of
precision and quality
while offering the best prices in the market.
I had the chance to take a brief and short break from the
weather this past weekend. And because of that I decided to finally do my
gardening project. My initial step for this is to always break the dirt up and
that were matted down after months of exposure to heavy and very cold snow. I
now then took my shovel and I started kickin up the frozen patches of ground
until my entire garden is alive again.
This deep, dark black color of the ground soil started
telling me that it is possible that it has rich nutrients that were left behind
by the previous’ years of vegetation. The most interesting spin for this is
that my garden has the dimensions of 9 feet long and 4 feet wide. My shovel is
only 3 feet long and I am only 5’2”. With these measurements, it gives me the
best advantage. A taller shovel would only be too bothersome and it can lose my
Do you remember the old phrase that goes like “Good things
comes in small packages”? I believe I have already proven that idiom.
When it comes to electronics enclosure, companies are also
into producing smaller handheld enclosures. There is the VK-62 from Polycase
that has the dimensions of 5.74 x 1.82 x 1.31 inches. These are available in a
2AA battery compartment and it has just the perfect size for fitting the
electronics equipment inside while there is enough power to supply and run the
Even with the small enclosure that only has only 2 AA sized
batteries, the battery compartment can also add to the enclosures’ handheld
compact nature – by making sure that the slender profile should be maintained
especially for in-hand applications.
In order to add the style for the use of the product, there
are electronics enclosure is widely available in bright white or standard black
using an ABS plastic material. There are handheld electronics enclosure that
can be customized or modified with certain cutouts for switches and the
connectors of all kinds.
Do you still need your company’s instruction, button, or
labels to be applied on the enclosure? It will not be a problem. The company’s
printing laboratories can print nearly on any text or graphics that has to be
on the surface of the enclosure. And it is now being printed using the
permanent and wear resistant ink.
We recently just moved and re-arranged the furniture in our
living room. My dog’s own crate has always been placed in the corner of our
living room. Along wit some of our new furniture, there was no longer a room
available for my dog’s crate. So we have to identify or look for another space
for the crate. Since my dog is a medium sized Labrador, the crate is super
To be able to move this into a new space or location, we
have to run our creativity. We have to find a space spacious enough to fit the
crate so that it can crate up and be installed on the wall. This in return,
reminded me of the video game, Tetries.
I was being reminded of this fact while I was talking with a
customer just the other day. The customers often call to our company because
they want to ask for help in selecting the right enclosure. This person was
particularly looking for a “a CD ROM sized enclosure”. When I told the customer
that I would be more than happy to find something similar to that size range,
the customer told me that it is just what he exactly needs as per dimension
The customer then was really hoping to produce a product
that would be able to slide into the same area like the optional CD ROM
available in the computer. In order to fit that exact space, the customer need
the right dimensions. This is too large and it would not eventually fit, and
too small that it will not hold very stable.
As we have recently discovered, this problem presents
several difficulties on a very few levels. While the majority of the
manufacturing companies will shape the enclosures with several type of ranges
to be able to offer the best choice available to the customers. However, it is
nearly impossible to be able to find the exact match for the dimensions within
a different product line.
There are companies that offers wide range of sizes and
different styles of electronic enclosures. Several of their enclosures are
mostly rectangular in shape, but majority of them have the same ratio of length
that ranges form width to height. We just recently found out that the most used
size range is 2 x 3 inches, and in line with this there are several options
that exists within the 1/2” range. While each of them consist of a very
This is to be able to give you the best and with the most
options possible to help in finding out the most perfect enclosure for the
Do you know where the cabinet in your kitchen place where
the food containers are usually kept? You need to have these spaces for the
food leftovers but with all the different sizes, depths, colors and it can lead
to the chaotic space in the kitchen. And the kitchen space has all the covers
for these spaces. What you should do with them?
With this in mind, I have finally discussed about my own
kitchen and I have finally cleaned up my kitchen area. I have found out that if
I will be able to stack all of the plastic enclosures together – together with
the slide covers being neatly placed next to the bowls – then, it will be no
longer a chaotic mess. Now, I can finally breath when I once open the door.
I finally got the idea on how to stack these different
containers from a recent customer email sent to an enclosure company. The
customer has liked the size of one of their enclosure, but the engineering
project he has been working on required 2 PCBs. These 2 boards were being
utilized to control different engineering operations. The final question is:
will he be able to stack the 2 boards within the DC-45 without causing any
The company told the customer that this will not present any
pressing issues. Providing that he is currently using spacers between these two
boards that can allow the air between the boards. There would be plenty of room
to stack the boards of them. The spacers would function as the support to be
able to mount the PCBs together.
Because this enclosure that the customer requests set only
one mounting bosses on the base, and none in the cover. The customers have to
use an additional method to secure the second board. There should not be any
bosses for the top of the board that can be mounted to.
In using the spacers, the project engineer would not need
the bosses available for the second board. The spacers will also allow for air
movement around the boards in order to prevent the overheating of the two PCB
An additional way for this to happen is to have a machine
countersunk in the holes in the cover and be able to use the separate
stand-offs to properly secure the board. This specific method is a similar way
that we can use to move the location of the position of the mounting bosses for
