Hammond Enclosure Customisation from JPR

By definition, all standard enclosures need to be configured to suit a specific application. We have many thousands of standard enclosure designs and sizes and we are able to offer modifications for orders as low as 25 units. Using us, the original manufacturer, eliminates scrap and design interpretation of your requirements.

The latest addition to our in-house capability is full colour UV digital printing. We can now enhance your product with eye-catching graphics and legends. The traditional four colour CMYK inks and clear, two whites and a primer are used to achieve an impressive array of finishes. The primer ink, applied selectively to the required areas of the enclosure, provides excellent sharp results on enclosures with both smooth and textured finishes. The unit has a maximum plan print size of 610 x 420 mm, so UV printing a full 9U 19" front panel is no problem at all. The machine can accept objects up to 153 mm high, so printing on the sides as well as the lids of enclosures is achievable, as is printing to the edges of curved surfaces. The clear ink allows selected areas or the complete surface to be finished with a high gloss, matte or embossed finish, greatly expanding the creative options for logos, backgrounds and legends. An embedded library of 129 different texture effects means that the design possibilities are almost endless.

Our additional investment in upgrading our digital UV printing capability allows you to ensure that your products reflect their inherent quality, supporting your brand identity and providing sharp, long-lasting solid and gradient colours and textured effects on the top and side faces of the enclosure that houses your electronics. We can do the the entire job for you in our one-stop shop – no need to send part-finished enclosures out to multiple contractors for the different processes, we take care of the whole process. One purchase order and the exact quantity required, there is no need to over-order for first-offs and approvals at multiple stages.
