  • !mm Etched and Anodised



    I am looking for a 1mm thick panel to cover a plastic enclosure. Front designer rejects this. Can you provide 1mm thick panels ?


    Is your natural aluminium finish the common etched and anodised finish ?


    I am unfamiliar with the laser engraved legends. They may suit my product but is anodised photo marking and option.


    Many thanks,

    Hello Docwat,


    Yes we offer 1mm thick anodized aluminum (color natural.) It is not available in Front Panel Designer because of a couple of limitations in size and design of the part. You can always design it in a thicker material and put a request in the file. We will then check and get back to you.


    We offer a variety of different anodized aluminum. An overview can be found here.


    All our engravings are actually cut. We don't laser engrave. Some examples are here.


    And there is of course always the possibility of requesting material and engraving samples from us. Our customer service will be more than happy to send those to you. Just call (206) 768-0602 or email and tell us where to ship it to.


    Kind regards,

    I will prepare an order as you suggest with the 1mm request.
