Aluminium housing box maker in Cape Town
« on: February 07, 2017, 03:53:17 PM »
I require 2 x aluminium enclosures for a PSU project.

120mm long x 60mm wide x 75mm deep.

Who are the people and companies that do this kind of work in Cape Town?

Mantech has  various Al channel profiles that they will cut to specified length. Two parts form a perfect rectangular profile when placed one on top of the other. You just need to provide front and rear plates. 4 screws through each plate hold the whole box together like a rock.

 Hi Crankshaft

You can also chat to Tangmonster, that does steel enclosures. Was going to place orders soon for these ones below:
