One of our aerospace clients approached us seeking support on design and prototyping of rack mount enclosure for one of their application which involved us working with their electronics team.
The client bought a standard enclosure from China on which we had to design our product in such a way that all his functional internal components had to be assembled in the box and proper cut-outs, mounting options, studs, PEMS and nuts had to be assembled.
Extreme detail is taken care including the tolerances for connector mountings and fitment of various hardware from their respective datasheets. The other main aspect of this project was to design it so that one can easily assemble.
As we modelled the enclosure using 3D Software the client could see how the enclosure will look as a complete product. This product was prototyped by us and took care of all the follow-up task from VMC machine shop since there were undercuts of peculiar shape. Next was powder coating and engraving part on the outer surface where connector details had to be mentioned.
