Aluface catalogue - .PDF file.

Aluface and Alutwin die-cast aluminium enclosures are particularly suitable for a range of industrial electronics and electrical applications, including process automation and machine control. According to Rolec, increased use of electronics in harsh industrial environments is boosting demand for the enclosure ranges.

Aluface enclosures have a recessed control panel in the front frame for displays, switches and keypads. They are manufactured from die-cast aluminium DIN 1725 and are available in sizes ranging from 120 x 120 x 80mm to 640 x 320 x 153mm.  

The Alutwin range is the two-chamber version of Aluface, manufactured in sizes 240 x 160 x 120mm and 240 x 240 x 120mm.

The Aluface and Alutwin electrical housings are powder-painted light grey RAL 7035 (base) and window grey RAL 7040 (front frame). Other colours can be supplied on request. 

Rolec offers a full customising service on these enclosures with CNC milling, drilling, silk-screen printing, assembly of cable glands and terminals and more, providing a fully finished housing ready for fitting the components.
