Great heads up!

I'm enjoying the explanatory fastener videos at

(no affiliation I'm in UK, there's suppliers here I'll consider)

Hi Robert,

Thanking you for taking the time to respond to my post.

The products you mentioned are heavy duty.

I have used these types of aluminum extrusions for over 30 years in factory automation systems. They are easy to use, robust to work with.

When my book(s) are released and you get a free copy, compare what I am showing and your system. I always believe, that you use whatever system suits your purpose.

When you have a copy of the book, I hope there is something in the book that you find useful and can apply to your electronic case projects.

Regards
Stephen

Stephen,
can you tell me where to get the extrusions that you show in the image you posted Jan 13th 2014 .  I have seen something like it from Germany and am trying to figure out where to get hold of some

Does anyone know where to locate this type of enclosure?  The ability to mount edge connectors inside is nice.
Thanks!

Several companies make them. Schroff and Fischer both in Germany come to mind.

There's a bunch available from Farnell for instance:

https://uk.farnell.com/c/enclosures-racks-cabinets/enclosure-rack-cabinet-accessories/19-plug-in-units?brand=schroff

These are expensive. I imagine you will find more cost effective local suppliers.

Cheers

Thanks Ian, yes, they look expensive. I'll check around.

Come to think of it, I bet there's some modular synthesizer hardware that would work.  Heck even the extruded cnc hardware kit might work, the ones where the mounting bolts slide in the x beams.

Thanks Scott, yeah I have quite a few cheap ones, where the top brace hangs fans. The internal suspension stuff is generally not sturdy enough for my taste. I'll check ebay tho!

They are expensive which is one reason I cam up with my own design using those little blocks we spoke about before.

Buerklin used to do do some of the Fischer extruded aluminium enclosures but I cannot seem to find them on their web site any more.. They are a bit cheaper but still a significant part of the cost of a mixer module.

DIY synth modules tend to be little more than a front panel attached to a PCB.

If you get lucky you can find them 2nd hand on ebay for little money. Those are not very popular.
