Custom Power Supply Metalwork Design

custom power supply metalwork design with 3D simulationWouldn't it be nice if you could fit our power supplies into your equipment using the mounting points, fixing plates and brackets that come as standard; but we all know with all the different shapes and sizes of power supplies and equipment it is no jigsaw. For this reason Sunpower Electronics value added services includes custom power supply metalwork design. We approach each project with an open mind and a flexibility that enables us to deliver your product to you on time and to your required standard.

If you already have a design ready to go, a specification of your requirements or need our assistance to solve your installation problem we can work with you on your custom power supply metalwork.  We have a network of mechanical engineering and design partners who can work in AutoCAD and Pro-E to lower product development costs and ensure a shortened design cycle for your custom power supply metalwork. Using these tools we can design anything from a mounting plate, fascia panel, power supply cover to a full enclosure to ensure our power supplies fit into your equipment just as they should.

When designing full enclosures in particular we use 3D Simulation so that you can visualise how the finished unit will look and speed up the development process. The computer aided design (CAD) 3D simulation will generate detailed imagery to assist in the customer power supply metalwork design; this will show the construction of your enclosure and simulate how it would be constructed; allowing for accurate costs and reduced design to manufacture time.

Technical mechanical diagrams, or 2D CAD drawings, will then be generated to clearly define the requirements, including dimensions, tolerances, material and finishes, for final sign off. These technical mechanical diagrams are the final stage of the custom power supply metalwork design process and contain all the information required for the unit to be manufactured.

Custom Power Supply Metalwork Sampling

Power supply metalwork technical mechanical diagramsWe now reach the custom power supply metalwork sampling stage; the design is transformed into a functioning sample in mild steel, stainless, aluminium or zintec for your approval.

This is your opportunity to test the fit with your equipment, or around our power supply to ensure there are no conflicts with any other components or wiring.

If required we then create production quality samples in the final material, with your required finish of zinc plating with colour passivate finish, powder coating, electroplating, anodising, other corrosion protection methods or any other finish you require to ensure it is just right.

Custom Power Supply Metalwork Production

When it comes to custom power supply metalwork production you have several options; for small projects we work closely with UK based metal fabrication services; for larger production requirements our far east factories would manage the production run. As part of this manufacturing process we can install the new metalwork onto our power supplies or supply to you to fit as part of your production process.

Value Added Services

Custom Power Supply Metalwork

With our partners we utilise computer aided design in AutoCAD or PRO E, create 3D Simulations of your product and produce sheet metal fabrications and enclosures in mild steel, stainless, aluminium and zintec. Metalwork finises include zinc plated covers with colour passivate finish, powder coating, electroplating, anodising and other corrosion protection finishes.
