Sheet metal boxes are two-part enclosures made by cutting metal sheets and then bending the resulting parts using a press brake to form a box. By adding cutouts for ports, switches, ventilation, or mounting, these versatile and cost-effective enclosures can be used in applications ranging from electronics to robotics. Powder coating or anodizing is an option for enhanced appearance and corrosion resistance.
