Process: Enclosures


Enclosures refers to the manufacturing of cabinets that is intended to hold electrical components.

An enclosure is a box that protects certain electrical components. Usually an enclosure has displays, knobs, switches inside. It is also common to punch holes in the box for ventilation and cables.

The manufacturing process normally includes punching, press brake work and surface finishing. Sometimes also assembling of the electrical equipment is also included in the manufacturing process. Manufacturing of enclosures is normally done in sheet metal workshops.
