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.
Post project to suppliers with Enclosures capabilities
As part of their cost base analysis, this buyer would like to receive quotes for their current range of powder coated outer cases (C1260 to C1263), as well as some slightly smaller versions with a few less details (C1304 to C1307). They request quotes for 100 to 1000 off of each part per week over a six month period, making this a substantial opportunity for suppliers who have the necessary capabilities. Both manufacture and assembly is needed, with delivery to commence in early February 2021.
**Due to the current health climate, we ask that you only submit a quotation for this project if you are in a position to fulfil the requirement. Please also be mindful that there may be a delay in buyer response due to widespread remote working.**
Quotes are sought for the attached enclosure, which is to be fabricated from 1.5mm & 3mm thick aluminium alloy, to be supplied with a RAL 9003 finish. The client is looking to collaborate with a supplier who is able to produce these parts to a high standard of quality; in return, there will be repeat orders available moving forward. This item will be used within a medical/scientific application, with prices required for 10 and 20 off at this time. The buyer's £10,000 annual fabrication spend indicates that there may also be additional work available once a relationship has been established.
Spending over £50,000 a year on bespoke fabricated parts, this company is a manufacturer and distributor of electronic parts. They currently require a fast turnaround on the two attached enclosure designs, with 200 off of each needed as soon as possible. In addition, these designs will be required in varying quantities moving forward, spelling ongoing work for the supplier that the client selects.
With an impressive spend of over £1,000,000 a year on fabrication type work, this company has an order to place for these two designs of mounting trays, which will be used within an aviation transponder. The difference in each design is one is to be supplied with a logo and the other without. Quotes are sought for 500 and 1000 off in total for both designs, in regular call-offs of 50 off each time. The first call off of 50 will be required in January 2021, with a sample requirement by mid-October. This project incorporates cutting, folding and plating processes, with pricing, delivery and quality of work all being equally important.
This buyer is in urgent need of a supplier to quote the manufacture of the parts to make up two electrical boxes. Quotes are needed by tomorrow afternoon (24th April).
At this stage only the metal enclosures are required
Please include in your quotes the welding of the box and that there is to be a lid (image included)
This company specialises in retro-style joysticks which will be manufactured to sell to the general public. Quotes are sought for the production of a selection of mild steel enclosures which will require cutting, folding and powder coating. Good value pricing is the most important consideration within this enquiry. An order will be placed as soon as the quotes are collated and a supplier is chosen. There is also scope for repeatable work going forward, in addition to this initial order requirement.
Suppliers who can lend accuracy and a high level of precision to the attached frame parts are sought, on behalf of a company that works within the offshore industry. These are new designs and the client would like to allocate manufacture for both the initial order and the ongoing production runs that follow. The parts in question are to be fabricated and welded from stainless steel and as the buyer spends an impressive £300,000 a year on subcontract fabrication services, there could be scope for additional projects to run alongside this enquiry. The buyer has also confirmed that should other processes be deemed more suitable to make these frames, they will be happy to discuss alternative suggestions.
With a spend of over £100,000 per year on bespoke fabricated designs, this company has an order to place for the attached enclosure, made using galvanised steel. Quotes are required for 1 off at this time. Pricing, reliable delivery and a quality end product are all essential for this enquiry. Once a relationship is established, this may also lead to similar work in addition to this initial requirement.
This company specialises in the manufacture of moulding equipment and places over £50,000 worth of work with subcontract fabrication suppliers every year. They are currently keen to speak with Qimtek members who can weld, fold and cut the attached 1.5mm thick stainless steel enclosure and associated components. Initially, 20 off of this design is needed, although the client has also advised that there is a high possibility of further batches being required moving forward.
With an outsourcing spend of over £150,000 per year on bespoke fabrication designs, this regular Qimtek buyer has an immediate order to place for the attached enclosure and fabricated parts, which will be used within the electronics industry. Quotes are required for 3 off initially, with a view to placing repeat orders after the initial enquiry is completed. This is a great opportunity to win ongoing work from a new client. Delivery timescales are very important for this enquiry.
