FYI – How are these made?
Start with the idea of the design. Plan spacing, think about the strength of the material. I used .060 Aluminum sheet. I have used and designed with .060 aluminum sheet for over 20 years. It is one of my favorite materials.
Once you have your .dxf, you can move onto creating G-code to drip feed into your CNC router. Here you can make speed changes as well as determine how you plan to layout your material for optimum usage.
Normally I like to use my larger CNC for making custom cabinets. With the large 7″ throat/Z axis I can handle materials up to 2 inches thick. Denser 2 – 10 lb foam materials are cut at those thicker dimensions. I don’t cut aluminum sheet any thicker than .125 inches.
Using the Mach 3 control program allows easy setup of your CNC machines. I use a 25 pin switch box to switch between the large and small CNC routers. The smaller CNC machine has tighter tolerances, so that is the machine I use to make all of my custom eurorack panels.
After cutting I glass bead blast the whole surface. This prepares the surface for powder coat and helps to remove any rough edges.
After the first round of blasting is done I move to the manual press brake and ‘brake’ the edges.
After running the holder through another round of media blasting it’s off to powder coating. I modified a standard oven rack so I could fit this into a standard oven and it also allows me to rotate the part so I can evenly apply the powder. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
I then do a final QC check and package them up for shipping.
