Optimisation not only makes components better – it pays off in other ways as well

A reliable partnership delivers solid quality

With its PI data cabinets, Prism offers a range of high-quality, affordable hardware for offices and data centres. Perforated components from SOLVARO are built into the doors in more than ten models. These plates, which have until now been welded into the door frames, help to cool the electronics stored inside the cabinets by letting the required air in through 3.96–4.76 round perforation with an open area of 63%. While the DC 05 steel seems transparent due to the perforation, it still offers excellent stability.

We’re ‘committed to better’ too! 

So far so good – but our application engineers took the Prism motto of ‘committed to better’ to heart and worked in close collaboration with the customer to optimise the parts. Extra space around the perforated area and a perimeter contour of 1.2 mm save Prism from having to weld the parts into the doors. And the cabinet itself looks better overall because the doors are made from one piece of material. Since welding is no longer necessary, the doors are quick to mount, and they also feature a pre-made impression for the manufacturer’s logo. With new capacity freed up, our customer in England can now focus on lots of other Prism products.

The solution at a glance: 

  • Components for server and data cabinets 
  • 3.96–4.76 round perforation 
  • Open area of 63% 
  • Non-perforated edge with 1.2 mm perimeter contour
  • Impression for logo 

Optimising the components has improved the look of the doors as well as eliminating a time-intensive work step.

Not a simple surface matter

Anyone who installs coated metal parts knows the myriad of influential factors that go into achieving high-quality rust protection. And it’s even more complex when parts are perforated. After all, perforated sheet metal behaves differently than solid material and raises a whole new range of specific challenges.
