Custom Card Reader Enclosure Fabrication

Steel Electronic Key Pad/Card Reader: The enclosure highlighted here was designed to securely house a keypad, LED screen, and credit card swipe reader to allow for cashless transactions in an unmanned public retail outlet. It was fabricated from 18 gage cold rolled steel, and the finished enclosure measured 5.00” in length, 7.00” in width, and 10.87” in height. This product features a sloped front face for an attractive design that facilitates easy use of the keypad, card reader, and LED screen by the end user. The design incorporates a ledged body and a snug fitting cover to provide moderate security and minimize the impact of vandalism.

To maximize material usage, raw 18 gage cold rolled steel was cut to size in-house on our shear. The material was then made into flat blanks on a CNC turret press. The enclosure component parts were formed on one of our press brakes.

Custom Manufacturing of Steel Electronics Key Pad/Card Reader Enclosures for Retail Industry

Component parts were assembled by
combination of spot welding and TIG welding. PEM type fasteners (studs
and stand-off) were pressed into place. Each step of the process included rigorous
dimensional and visual inspections to maintain our high level of
quality. The completed enclosure was finished with the application of a
light textured charcoal metallic powder coat (BMP # 177). This entire
project, from initial design, through development of a working
prototype, to initial delivery of production parts was completed on time. For more information on this project, or the processes used
to fabricate it, see the table below or contact us directly.
