Material selection for enclosure design

June 21, 2012 Tags:

Electronic systems should always have the adequate protection to shield themselves from electromagnetic interferences (EMI). A proper system enclosure design can avert this difficulty. Hence material selection for electrical component manufacture and enclosure design should be done very carefully.

According to experts in design engineering, above 10,000 new materials have been developed in the last 50 years. Hence selecting the best one among them is not an easy task. Complexity of selecting suitable materials for electrical components and electrical enclosure development has made electrical control designers and panel builders look for advanced methods to analyze the materials, based on various requirements, and later pick and choose the best one among them. The expertise of the designers has a key role to play. They should have a comprehensive idea about how to select the apt material for the enclosure design of the product.

It’s always better to hire an experienced CAD engineer, to help minimize errors, and loss of time and money. By gaining a comprehensive understanding of materials used for the development of electrical enclosures, they can easily choose the material that best meets the performance goals of the product to be manufactured. However, if required, suggestions from experienced materials engineers can also be sought.

As you all know, no company would be ready to compromise their profits for an improperly made enclosure. Hence it’s always good to take the advice of experts or approach a top company and take-up their service in electrical component manufacture and enclosure designs. Such designs are not simple and require the expertise to consider and evaluate many variables, to ensure proper shielding performance.
