ENCLOSURES: small custom designed plastic casing for IoT and Micro-Electronics
Small to medium size, enclosures designed and fabricated by LTP are often handheld, wall mounted or placed on a desk. They can also be mounted inside another bigger application.
In most cases they are more rapid for both development and to manufacture.
At LTP the custom designed solution is materialised by a prototype within 5 working days for enclosure projects based on ElectroniCase and within approximately 2 - 5 weeks for DesignCase projects. The serial production can start immediately upon validation of the prototype.
Meaning even if a manufacturer of electronic devices like IoT, detection and security devices, connected office or professional IT equipment had initially decided to use an off-the-shelf standard enclosure and the project is in the later stage of its development process, LTP can provide a rapid R&D solution. The quotation for a bespoke enclosure can be made online or directly via the LTP CASE technical sales representatives.
There are two development options: ElectroniCase (quote online) or DesignCase (checklist online). The technology needs no specific tooling and yet the final enclosure will be entirely custom designed.
You are working on a new production development project and need an enclosure? You would like an enclosure in your company colours and corporate identity? You would like to add user instructions on the enclosure to make sure the user plugs the cables into the matching connector? You would like to give your device an ergonomic shape for a comfortable use, but you do not have the budget, nor the quantity for injection mould tooling to fabricate a custom designed enclosure?
You could adapt a standard plastic enclosure, but possibilities are limited. With our ElectroniCase solution, the budget is comparable to an adapted standard injection enclosure.
Furthermore, with a custom designed enclosure, there are no limits. All aesthetics and technical specifications will be considered right from the start.
This custom designed shape and look gives your product a unique identity. An electronic device, immediately recognisable, without any extra costs. Your sales will increase and your turnover grows.
Common technical points from our customers, who wish to develop a bespoke enclosure are: The product contains a PCB that needs to be protected. The PCB has 2 ports on the left side and 1 port on the right side.
The finished device including a PCB in an enclosure made from plastic is going to be mounted on the wall. A hidden mounting feature is needed to provide an unauthorised person to dismount the enclosure.
The PCB inside the enclosure needs to be easily accessible for service and maintenance. The device is mounted inside a machine or a very narrow area where there is millimetre precision to make it fit. It needs to be as small as possible.
A standard enclosure needs to be reworked and your electronics must be adapted. This rework will consume additional time and money for shipping costs to the manufacturer site, unpacking, manufacturing, packing, and shipping again to your site for mounting the PCB.
A standard reworked enclosure might not even be suitable at all.
With the LTP solution it is the enclosure that adapts to the electronics and your technical needs.
An LTP plastic enclosure will be shipped ready for mounting directly from our production plant in France, including all the finishing you requested: cut outs, painting, marking and engraving. Your production team will be able to start mounting the electronic components immediately.
