Expanded enclosure modification service

14 June 2017 Enclosures, Racks, Cabinets & Panel Products

Hammond Electronics offers more than 5000 standard designs and sizes of plastic, metal, extruded and die-cast aluminium enclosures. What’s more, the company has recently made substantial investments in equipment, people and systems at its Basingstoke European headquarters to expand its in-house modification capacity, improve service levels and reduce lead times.

Additional CNC machines have been installed, boosting throughput by more than 40%; updated production engineering, project management and production control systems have been introduced, an additional building on the site has been dedicated to the modifications department and a production manager specifically to oversee the modification activities has recently been recruited.

Using the original manufacturer to turn a standard enclosure into an application-specific housing offers customers an advantage in terms of product cost, time to market reduction and logistics simplicity, in addition to the qualitative benefits of being able to draw on the extensive experience of the company’s technical and design teams.

Hammond’s modification capabilities include CNC milling, drilling, punching, engraving and printing, EMC coatings, front panel overlays, custom colours for moulded enclosures and a variety of different paint finishes for metal enclosures. PDF drawings or CAD files for all products are available on www.hammondmfg.com, allowing customers to easily specify the modifications required.
