CLEVELAND, OH – Bud Industries, Inc. offers a complete line of dust-tight enclosures and water-tight enclosures that meet NEMA enclosure requirements. Bud offers NEMA boxes in materials ranging from aluminum and fiberglass to plastic and sheet metal. In addition, Bud supports its stock of NEMA boxes with custom-design products and design support for engineers unsure of how to apply NEMA ratings to their applications.
In 2008, Bud introduced its ANS Series of aluminum die-cast NEMA boxes with EMI/RFI shielding. Featuring a unique dual-channel gasketing approach, the one-piece molded outer silicone gasket guarantees reliable and long-lasting sealing. These units meet NEMA 1, 2, 4, 4X, 12, 13 and IP65 ratings. Each unit can be easily machined and modified to specific requirements.
Another representative offering from Bud is its SN Series NEMA-rated sheet-metal boxes. The SN Series boxes have continuous welded seams and a hinged cover that clamps to the base with stainless steel screws and brackets for a water-tight seal. Bud sheet-metal boxes are suitable for use in a broad range of applications, including power supplies and industrial controls in wash-down, marine, outdoor or dirty environments.
NEMA boxes and NEMA cabinets are among the more than 2,500 products that Bud offers, more than 90 percent of which are available for same-day shipment. Direct design support also is part of Bud’s signature effort to ensure customer satisfaction as well as production reliability. Bud’s 28-page Enclosure Design Tips Handbook – available online at www.budind.com/47 – is a convenient tool for creating optimal design and engineering solutions.
