Customised Handheld and Wearable Enclosures For Medical Devices

All OKW enclosures can be specified fully customised – so they can go straight from Goods In to your production line, ready for the installation of components. Customisation is now quicker, easier and more cost-effective than ever thanks to new technology. This also makes it available and viable in lower volumes.

OKW’s vast range of standard enclosures means it doesn’t take many customisation steps to transform an off-the-shelf case into a machined and fully branded housing that is ready for your PCBs. The full range of customisation services is available in-house – so you deal with a single supplier who is fully accountable for the finished product. This ensures quality, saves time and reduces administration. Services include:

  • CNC machining – milling, tapping, engraving, drilling, stamping, countersinking and tapping.
  • Lacquering – from matt to glossy, metallic and colour tones, soft-touch (such as artificial leather), antibacterial paint, ESD conductive lacquer to prevent electrostatic discharges.
  • Printing – photo-quality digital printing of legends, logos and graphics on plastic with a height difference up to 1.4 mm; screen and tampo printing defined according to RAL, many Pantone shades or your own sample.
  • Laser marking – ideal for small machine-readable markings such as QR codes, barcodes, DataMatrix codes, consecutive numbering of individual parts.
  • Decor foils – in batches from one unit. Again, with consecutive numbering, codes and technical specifications. Graduated colours are also available.
  • Special materials – specify enclosures moulded in flame-resistant V-0 plastic and/or in custom colours or translucent plastic.
