Extruded enclosures in four modern designs

To create something truly exquisite you must first cast aside the constraints of convention. As we have just done.

Our challenge was to take enclosures for electronics to a whole new level. Our solution? Rewrite the rulebook and combine plastic and aluminum in absolute harmony.

Or rather in perfect SYNERGY.

OKW’s beautiful new range exudes sophistication thanks to ultra-high quality finishing. Even by our own extremely demanding standards, we have been utterly obsessive about the finish of this 36-strong range of desktop, wall mount and handheld enclosures.

Every case body is extruded from AIMgSi 0.5 aluminum then blasted with glass beads and anodized in silver (or black if you prefer). That meant bringing in a specialist partner, one with experience of providing superlative anodizing solutions for German manufacturers of top end TV and home entertainment systems.

And that’s just the aluminum case body. We then applied the same levels of perfectionism to the plastic top and base – both of which are ASA+PC-FR (UL 94 V-0) for UV resistance.

They come in black (RAL 9005) as standard as the perfect counterpoint to the satin silver of the aluminum – but a wide range of custom colors is also there to tempt you. Top and base are secured in position by our innovative new fast-connect system which is based around four internal assembly pillars manufactured from glass reinforced polyamide. OKW Synergy Square plastic and electronic aluminum enclosures SYNERGY features an innovative new fast-connect system based around four internal assembly pillars

The pillars snap in to the recessed top panel, locate the assembly extrusion and are fixed to the bottom part with four stainless steel Torx T10 anti-tamper screws. Several pillars can be snapped together to create custom heights in 0.20” increments (on request). For most efficient use of space, you can install PCBs in the top and bottom. Cables of up to ø 0.12” can be routed out of the bottom part.

SYNERGY’s high quality and versatility make it ideal for a wide range of applications such as medical and therapeutic systems, home automation, measurement and control, peripherals and building services electronics.

Options and accessories include: battery compartments for two, three or four 1.5V AA cells; an extender kit for the PCB pillars and a wall mounting suspension kit (only one screw is needed).
