3. Why Extruded Enclosures Are The Future

Think ‘extruded enclosures’, and prosaic metal channeling probably springs to mind. It’s all very functional but hardly luxury kit. Think again…

Today’s ultra-modern aluminium extruded enclosures are taking their rightful place at the forefront of case design. They’re the new leading edge products at OKW, even though we’ve always specialised in plastic electronic enclosures (and will continue to do so).

Our extruded housings combine smooth aluminium and performance plastics to create sophisticated hybrids. Designers specify them for high end applications – whether that’s lifesaving equipment for the demanding medical sector or luxury gadgetry for discerning consumers.

Those of you who’ve seen our award-winning SYNERGY enclosures and handled them for yourself will know precisely what we’re talking about here. Are these stunning SYNERGY cases really seven years old now? They don’t look or feel like it. They could have been unveiled yesterday to house the products of tomorrow.

Note: This blog post was first published in February 2018 when SYNERGY was then four years old. SYNERGY and the more recent SMART-TERMINAL were our first enclosures to combine extruded aluminium and moulded plastic. And they’re still cutting edge with smart, modern aesthetics and innovative design features.
