Why Use Aluminum Boxes?
The most electronic component would need to be protected by housing that could keep away outside factors like dust, water, moisture, or sudden impact. Aluminum boxes are suitable enclosures for such items.
These boxes are made from aluminum die casts and they have to die cast lids too. They can also be fitted with covers that can be screwed in place to seal the item away from anything that could damage it.
Aluminum boxes are used as the natural ground for electrical components. Since aluminum conducts electricity, the boxes are also used as the grounding planes for the electronic items being kept.
Many companies use these boxes for RF/EMI shielding too. The boxes used are still made using aluminum die-casting. RF (Radio Frequency) or EMI (Electrical Magnetic Inductance) shielding is means of protection or shielding against radio waves and frequencies that may interfere with the electronic components in the box. The box keeps these outside frequencies away from its content.
As an RF/EMI shield, the aluminum box is electrically conductive and can disperse and absorb any of the outside frequencies and thus, protect the electronic component that is kept inside it.
The aluminum boxes can also be used as enclosures for engine compartments, computer components, computer disk drives, communication devices, motors, car transmissions, or electrical junction boxes.
Aside from the natural conductivity of aluminum, it is a choice of manufacturers for their enclosure needs because aluminum parts weigh less than 1/3 the weight of steel. That could be more cost-effective and it allows easier transport of items.
