Enclosures

AluFab has years of experience using our T-Slots aluminum extrusion to build enclosures that provide a clean environment for machines to run and safe spaces for operators or technicians to work. Due to their modular and customizable nature, aluminum extrusion panels make a great way to build every size enclosure in any work environment. And with an endless number of features that can be easily integrated into your system, your custom enclosure will serve the exact purpose that you are looking for.

Machine Perimeter Enclosures

Perimeter enclosures are typically built as an individual machine unit designed to protect your machine and allow your process to be completed in a safe, clean, and controlled environment. The machine or part can be loaded, unloaded, and/or serviced through exterior access panels that can be built as sliding doors, swing doors, or automatic guillotine doors. Climate can be controlled by simple vent slots or complete HVAC systems. Dust control is achieved through door and panel seals as well as optional positive-pressure fans. LED lights can easily be integrated into the ceiling panels to provide visibility for operators and technicians. When space is at a premium and plant conditions require maximum protection, AluFab’s perimeter enclosure is a compact, cost-effective solution.

AluFab Perimeter Enclosures

Designed to protect just the CMM, this small, individual machine unit is accessed from outside the enclosure.

Standard Features for Perimeter Enclosures

Both perimeter enclosure styles are designed with the following features:

  • T-slotted aluminum construction
  • Expanded PVC multi-colored panels
  • Fluorescent lighting
  • Filtered cooling fans
  • Brush seals: seals air, light, fumes, dust, debris, and spray
  • Lightweight modular panels, designed to fasten together for easy installation

AluFab Room Enclosures

For large CMM’s, dirty and noisy environments, or where extreme temperature variations exist, AluFab’s room enclosures is an effective and practical solution. The room enclosure is a customized unit, designed to suit any size, climate, or cleanliness specification needed. Put a self-contained lab right on the manufacturing floor, complete with a heating and air-conditioning system, electrical outlets for machine controls and computers, air hook-up, and complete dust sealing. Window panels can provide visibility in and out of the room, or stay isolated with sound panels, fire panels, and thermal panels. Any requirement that will provide an optimal environment for both your process and your technicians can easily be incorporated into an AluFab room enclosure.
