Black Anodize

May 8, 2015 0 Comments aluminum-extrusion
Aluminum Anodizing  from Thermoprene produces electronic enclosures in many sizes and materials.  Extrusion is an inexpensive method for production of enclosures and lends itself well to the design of card slot features, heat sink fins, and screw bosses for attaching end plates or caps.  Most enclosures are produced as a single, hollow profile, which can be cut to different lengths depending on the enclosure requirements.  It is necessary with some designs and some materials (especially plastics) to produce the enclosure from two mating parts.  In some cases these mating profiles are identical, and can be flipped to mate with itself.  Sometimes two unique profiles are required to produce the enclosure.  Plastic enclosures and other hollow design shapes can be limited in terms of features inside the hollow void.  Since the features on the inside of the hollow do not get as much air or water flow for cooling, those features can be difficult to control.  Many plastic enclosures are produced in two pieces so that card slots and screw bosses can be cooled and vacuum calibrated as any other solid profile would be. aluminum black anodizing
