Custom front panels are commonly used in electronic devices. By adding cutouts and associated labels, a front panel can transform a prototype into a finished product. Standard finishes for metal front panels include anodizing and powder coating. After finishes, labeling is then laser etched. FR-4 laminated fiberglass up to ⅛” thick is a common material due to its low cost and weight and high strength.
