A Quick Tour of Protocase
What Do We Make?
We manufacture custom sheet metal electronic enclosures, mounting hardware, and miscellaneous components. We start from your design, and build them in 2-3 days, with no minimum order requirements. Products are built from your choice of aluminum, copper, steel, stainless, or galvanized, and are fully finished, including fasteners, hardware, welding, powdercoating, and silkscreen.
Experienced sheet metal designers
Protocase makes life easier for experienced sheet metal designers. Submit your CAD design by email or via our convenient web form, and you will receive a quote typically on the same day (24 hours maximum), and we'll build it for you in 2-3 days. Use our design services to help you through busy periods, or save time by using our free enclosure template generator and Protocase Designer software.
Other engineers, scientists, and technologists who build electronics
If you design and build electronics, but don't have expertise in sheet metal design, you can enjoy the benefits of professional quality custom enclosures by using our super-simple processes. Our expert designers can quickly and cost effectively create a design for you, starting from as little as a rough sketch or components. Our Protocase Designer 3D enclosure CAD software and online enclosure template generator are free, easy to learn, and fast to use.

Learn About Our Ultra-Lean Manufacturing Process
Protocase believes that our customers shouldn't have to wait weeks for professional-quality custom enclosures and components, so we developed our unique ultra-lean manufacturing process that consistently delivers many times faster than conventional manufacturers. We've done this by eliminating the waiting between manufacturing stages, and by committing to having excess capacity on hand as we grow. In this way, we deliver consistent 2-3 day turnaround, subject to certain restrictions.
Our Lead Times
- • 2-3 days from drawing approval
- • Add 1 day for silkscreen (to allow for curing of ink)
- • Multicolor silkscreens may require extra time
- • Larger jobs will require extra lead time
