Three new CNC punching, forming and milling machines are helping METCASE to create the next generation of standard and customized 19” rack cases, 19” mini-racks, desktop and portable instrument enclosures.
METCASE’s new Wiedemann punching machine features a built-in tapping tool that can punch holes and tap threads simultaneously. It features a large table that can accommodate 2.5m-long aluminum and steel sheets. It has 44 tool stations so it can punch complex enclosure parts faster and more efficiently.
The new Amada forming machine and hydraulic-drive press brakes features a multi-touchscreen interface that controls the production of batches at low energy costs with process stability.
METCASE’s new Haas milling machine features a 10-station automatic tool changer that enables faster production of enclosures with complex cut-outs. It is ideal for customizing extrusion profiles and diecast parts, and for machining panel cut-outs such as recessed pockets or counterbores.
The new machines will enable METCASE to produce customized versions of its most complex models, such as its TECHNOMET instrument enclosures and TECHNOMET 19” mini-racks.
All METCASE enclosures can be specified fully customized. Dealing with a single-source supplier “ensures quality, full accountability, faster delivery and reduced administration”. Services include bespoke sizes, custom front panels, CNC machining, fixings and inserts, painting/finishing and photo-quality digital printing of graphics, legends and logos.
