Graphics on CNC Machined Parts & Enclosures

We offer two different ways to apply surface graphics, such as logos, labeling or other artwork, onto your custom CNC machined part, panel or enclosure: Digital Printing and Silkscreening.

Digital Printing:

Digital Printing
CNC Milling: Mirrored Appearance

Text and images are applied via our digital printers, which feature laser alignment technology and the full CMYK spectrum of colors.

Things to Consider:

  • • Digital Print can be applied after powdercoating and milled surface appearances.
  • • Due to geometry, digital print can only be applied on the outside of machined enclosures, panels and parts - not on interior pockets.

CNC Milling: Mirrored Appearance

Also known as screen-printing, silkscreening is a printing technical that involves passing ink through a porous fabric to create a sharp-edged single-color image from a stencil.

Things to Consider:

  • • Silkscreening can be applied on any of our milled finishes, as well as powdercoat, anodizing and chem film conversion.
  • • We offer 15 standard silkscreen colors in stock. (We are happy to order non-stock colors, for additional lead time and cost).
  • • Silkscreening is ideal for flat graphics with a limited number of colors, as each color needs to be silkscreened separately.

    Machined engraving is completed via our 5-axis and 3-axis CNC machines. Machined engraving provided permanent marking on your enclosure, panel or part. It's particularly useful for labeling, branding and schematics.

    Things to Consider:

    • • The depth of Protocase's machined engraving is standard, set at 0.010" (0.25mm).
    • • Machined engraving is achieved on a variety of finishes, including smooth polyester powdercoat, milled surface appearances and anodized.
