On Stand M16, Hammond Electronics will showcase its customisation capabilities, with examples of application-specific plastic and die-cast enclosures that demonstrate its in-house facilities, which have recently received a further £100k+ investment, increasing the number of CNC machines by one third. The installation of a new high precision saw has also increased total customisation capacity by a further 40%, improving service levels and reducing lead times. CNC milling, drilling, punching, engraving and printing are available, as are 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 easily to specify the customisations required.
Also on show will be a selection from Hammond’s 5000 different standard plastic, metal, extruded and die-cast aluminium enclosures. The focus of this year’s stand is enclosures optimised for use in industrial environments. The new 1551V miniature ventilated sensor enclosures are designed to house temperature, humidity and pressure sensors and distributed intelligent sub-systems. In many applications, physical protection of the electronics can require EMC protection and protection against dust and water. On show will be several families of environmentally protected industrial enclosures, notably the IP68 sealed 1554 and 1555 polycarbonate and ABS range and the 1550 and 1590 die-cast enclosures, which give excellent RFI attenuation and sealing up to IP67.
