The brief here was to design an attractive, compact, EMC compliant, easy to assemble, low cost sheet metal housing for a data transfer unit capable of being manufactured with a repeatable accuracy of 0.2mm in batches of 500.
Several ideas were investigated using Solidworks and the chosen design features an aluminium folded base and lid with internal cheeks to position the encapsulated PCB. The tumbled front and rear stainless steel cheeks give the product a distinctive look and the stick on plastic graphic labels give a durable low cost alternative to silk screen printing.
We’ve now manufactured thousands of these units in different colours to distinguish the product in different supply chains.
