  • Anodized aluminum and engravings


    I was curious to know more about the manufacturing process, specifically about the anodized aluminum. If I used Front Panel Designer to build an anodized aluminum front panel for an enclosure, does the panel get re-anodized after the engraving? Or do you anodize the panel after engraving? I would like to avoid having the raw metal exposed.

    Also, am I able to specify depth when we are engraving text? I didn't see it in the application, am I able to request a specific depth when I order?

  • Matching paints

    Are there any off the shelf spray paints that are close to the colors you offer on your panels? The Red, blue, black, gold, green, etc... ?

  • Anodized Aluminum Panel w/ White Background

    Hello! Is there any way to have full-color imagery with a white background printed on anodized aluminum (rather than choosing powder-coated aluminum, which cannot have graphics printed on)?

  • Brass engraving

    I'm interested in making some small engraved plates out of brass. Do you stock brass sheet (for instance .032 or .040), or would I have to supply the material? Any idea how this might affect cost vs. your standard aluminum?

  • Front plate

    Can a front plate be angulated, i.e. not flat?

  • Clamp marks on sides of panel

    What do I need to specify to make sure the clamp marks from the machining are removed from the sides of the panel. 4 mil and up panels seem to have deep clamp marks in them. I need to have them milled off.
