Beta Layout Offers Custom Front Panels
Custom front panels.
Boston, MA — Beta Layout has introduced a new online Front Panel service. The new service enables users to configure their own Front Panel designs and place an order directly online. The service provides a professional "free-to-download" design software, numerous machining options, material thickness, fonts, colors, and finishes.

According to the company, the free, easy-to-use, design software simplifies the configuration and ordering of custom front panels. Choices available include many standardized construction units — ventilators and subconnectors — which are available in the software's library. The software even calculates the price of the finished front panels. Once the front panel design is complete, an order can be placed directly through the software itself.

Alternatively, DXF files from any CAD program can be converted and processed for a small surcharge. Separate printing and inscription files are required for this option.

Various front panel materials can be selected from a wide range of natural or colored anodized aluminum and plastic acrylics. Material thickness from 1.5 to 3mm (0.059 to 0.118-in.) can be selected. The minimum dimensions possible are 30 x 30mm (1.18 x 1.18-in.), up to a maximum of 300 x 460mm (11.8 x 18.11-in.). High precision CNC machining, such as drilling (with and without threads), countersunk drills, flat milling and cutouts are all possible. The latest milling and drilling machines are used to complete the manufacturing process.

The inscription of front panels with text, logos, images, scalings etc. is achieved using engraving methods and/or high-resolution digital printing. The maximum order quantity is 50 pieces; lead-times are available from 3 to 8 working days.
