Our business since 1985 is to accompany our customers in the development and manufacture of their electronic devices in the HEALTH & BEAUTY, INDUSTRY or SERVICE & IoT sectors for the ENCLOSURES, COVERS and PARTS … the final touch, that dresses the electronics and gives the external identity to a finished product
To achieve a high degree of protection, the housing must be designed accordingly, but the assembly of the components must also consider the need for sealing.
The sheet plastics processing technology is based on methods that originated in carpentry, such as the “tongue and slot” mounting. It is now a proven process, and we develop several hundred new, unique, and entirely bespoke projects per year. Our designs are driven by technology, which dictates connecting lines. Those connecting lines fragilize the watertightness.
For example, the most basic design in plastic sheet metal, i.e. 2 U-clips (EC10-200-0) meets an IP requirement of 54.
5 = Protected against dust and other microscopic residues
4 = Protected against splashing water from all directions
We have solutions to offer you a waterproofing equivalent to IP65. However, these solutions require a special adaptation to your custom-made enclosure. This need must be explicitly expressed to your contact person at LTP
LTP cannot provide a certificate for the watertightness level. As a subcontractor, we design and manufacture the bespoke plastic enclosure for you. This enclosure is only part of the final product. It is up to you to perform this test after the final assembly of your device. It is however possible to integrate an IP watertightness pre-test. In this case, it is necessary to define a test method that is physically and technically feasible for LTP, to assist you in the various manufacturing steps to achieve your desired final result.
