MEDICAL HOUSINGS NOW ON-LINE AT WWW.MEDICALHOUSINGS.CO.UK Monday 15 January 2001 PDF Print Designers of medical equipment seeking enclosures in which to house their products can now access a new web site at http://www.MedicalHousings.co.uk The web site links directly to custom enclosure specialist Bafbox's site that includes a wealth of information on the company's cost-effective custom enclosure fabrication techniques. For short production runs, typical of those encountered in the medical equipment industry, Bafbox's service is ideal as custom plastic enclosures can be produced without expensive tooling. The Bafbox system of manufacture offers customers a personalised product tailor made to exact specifications. The www.medicalhousings.co.uk site also enables access to Bafbox's on-line design manual that provides design engineers with an easily accessible source of information on the design and production of custom enclosures. For engineers faced with the task of procuring enclosures for new products, Bafbox's "Design Manual" is an indispensable source of design knowledge built up from the company's extensive experience in producing custom plastic enclosures in low volumes. Engineers can print out the entire manual for themselves and can also access other areas of the Bafbox web site including the recently launched Virtual Designer. This allows designers and customers to interact with the site and see how different types of boxes would look with different types of holes and slots. Starting with a plain box, the user can 'create' machining on it, instantaneously. This feeling of working with the box is designed to give users a better insight into designing their own boxes. The Design Manual describes the Bafbox technique of cutting and folding plastic sheet to manufacture custom designed enclosures and provides guidance to help engineers determine whether they should opt for injection moulding or Bafbox solutions. Also included is a guide to the main benefits of the Bafbox approach to plastic enclosure manufacture. These include design flexibility, no tooling costs, fast turnaround of prototypes (as little as four days), short production lead times, low risk start-up costs and excellent technical advice. Further sections cover mail order boxes and custom panels for off-the-shelf boxes. Technical information included in the guide covers basic box types, design hints, plastic types and textures, silk screen printing, design guidelines and a useful summary covering the CE mark and EMI/RFI screening. Medical housing designers should point their browsers at http://www.medicalhousings.co.uk for the latest information on Bafbox custom enclosures.
