The ability of a material to pass a current is called conductivity. Often referred to as electrical conductivity, where electricity flows through one material to another. Essentially to have better conduction between one material to another is to have metal as a conductor. Metals have proven to be good conductors. Having a fast conductivity means having a more efficient transfer of heat from one material to another. Things can be done simultaneously. Thus, you have to consider the enclosure and the required dimensions of the customer. So in electronic enclosures, every part of the conduction metal is crucial. The good thing about YONGU we have modern and high-end machinery to provide you with that electronic enclosure to provide the best conductivity to your materials.
Below are some conductivity tips to consider:
Material Choice, (Aluminum, galvanically or stainless steel)
Aluminum is durable, corrosive resistant has high heat dissipation, and is very lightweight. Galvanill is often used in areas where water is present but is not as durable as aluminum and stainless steel. Stainless steel is also durable and corrosive resistant but weighs more than aluminum.
Masking, any loopholes in the enclosure will lessen the conductivity of the material. Applying thin polyester tapes in certain areas ensures that these won't be damaged during anodization or powder application. Anodization is nonconductive areas, and filling all your enclosure areas will not allow conduction in their specific areas. You have the option to mask all the internal areas of the enclosure, areas around the connector cutouts, or below the electrical components. Masking increases the connectivity of your bare metals conductivity with one another.
Finishes, bare metal finishes are essential for your enclosure's conductivity. Finishes prevent your bare metal from scratches or blemishes, keeping the enclosure in good condition for a longer period. You can opt to use grain finish, vibratory finish, or media blasting. Here in Yongu we use grain finish to enhance the coat of our aluminum metal.
Anodizing, the process of submerging aluminum in a liquid bath filled with electric current flowing through, oxidizing the metal and increasing the aluminum durability while allowing electrical conductivity.
All of these tips can lead you to your ideal aluminum case, aluminum enclosures, aluminum box, electronic project box, or even aluminum project box. Some uses of aluminum for its high conductivity are in wiring power grids, power transmission lines, local power lines, and even in satellite dishes. Coupled with its high dissipation property, aluminum allows high conduction without overheating instantaneously.
Now, here in Yongu we design different types of aluminum enclosures that can ensure high conductivity between your materials. Not only does aluminum have a high conductivity property, but it also offers a wide range of advantages as a base metal for your enclosures. Aluminum has a corrosion resistance property, is durable, can be anodized, sandblasted to any color you want, and is lightweight. These excellent properties of aluminum brought us to develop our aluminum-made enclosures here in YONGU. Some of our products include sheet metal enclosures, aluminum instrument enclosures, amplifier aluminum enclosures, 19" rack mount enclosures, Aluminum electronics enclosures, and even an IP68 Waterproof Aluminum Enclosure. Our aluminum electrical enclosures are professionally made and styled to modern design. Some of our aluminum electrical enclosures include YONGU Product Innovation High-Quality Aluminum Box, YONGU Split Extruded Aluminum Enclosure YONGU Extruded Profile CNC Machining PCB Aluminum, YONGU Circuit Board Anodization Split Aluminum, and YONGU Custom Outdoor Circuit Protection Enclosure.
As a professional extruded aluminum enclosures electronic manufacturer rest assured that all these conductivity tips are considered by our electrical engineers in creating the best aluminum enclosures for your electrical needs.
