Tailored manufacturing of plastic or metal housingsPrototech
Prototyping and manufacturing of plastic or metal housings requires a real know-how. At Prototech Asia, we have chosen to specialize in the creation of prototypes and small or medium series. This leads us to work on many projects for the manufacturing of cases in different materials and finishes.
So, if you are looking for an expert in the manufacture and assembly of plastic and metal parts, you are at the right place!
Tailored Manufacturing of plastic or metal housings
The design of a plastic or metal enclosure must meet numerous safety standards while providing an elegant and protective covering for your internal elements and components. Indeed, this type of plastic or metal part is used to cover equipment and protect electronic systems.
In addition, the cases must be branded with your company’s name and meet your expectations in terms of design, functionality and standards. This is especially true for certain professional products that operate in extreme environments (aquatic environment, high heat, frequent freezing, etc.).
It is said that the case must adapt to the components and not the opposite. This is why it is important to be interested in the design and manufacture of plastic or metal housings.
Why trust Prototech Asia for prototyping and manufacturing of plastic or metal housings?
As specialists in plastics processing and rapid prototyping, we can advise you efficiently for the manufacturing of your plastic or metal housing.
Indeed, we have a design office which will propose a quick solution adapted to your needs after receiving your 3D files. This concerns the material (wide choice of plastic and metal materials) as well as the finishes and the quantity of cases to be produced (production of parts in small or medium series).
Then, we move on to the production phase of the parts. We offer several techniques and technologies:
- CNC machining / digital milling: prototypes or final parts in plastic or metal, single parts and small series
Example 1: Aluminum housing made by CNC machining, with finish of black anodizing. Production of a pre-series of 100 sets,
Example 2: Steel case made by CNC machining, with finish of simple polishing. Low volume production of 20 sets,
- Vacuum casting / silicone molding: injection of polyurethane material into a silicone mold to create prototypes in good plastics:
Example 1: Plastic case made by vacuum casting, in material of similar ABS tinted in black, and overmolding with shore material for the button. Production of 200 sets for final use,
Example 2: Plastic case made by vacuum casting, in material of similar ABS tinted in blue, and overmolding with shore material in black. Low volume production of 50 sets.
- Thermoplastic injection / injection molding with prototype mold for small and medium series,
Example: Plastic case made by plastic injection, material of PA (nylon), and overmoulding with TPU material in red. Low volume production of final pieces, 200 sets.
- Sheet metal work / realization of boxes by forming and machining operations,
Example: Front of box made by forming and welding, bonding one PMMA plate with black paint.
- Finishing / in order to obtain the aspect you wish or to personalize your case to your colors, it is possible to bring him various finishes: classic painting, brilliant painting or ‘soft touch’, marking logo, chroming, laser engraving etc.
Example: Plastic case made by vacuum casting, ‘soft touch’ paint finish and logo marking in green,
Once the prototype of your plastic or metal case has been produced, we carry out a quality control of the assemblies or sub-assemblies before sending the molded parts. You will first receive a visual by email and then the part resulting from the manufacturing of your plastic or metal case within a few days.
