A process invented in 1985
Invented in 1985 by the founder of the French company La Tôlerie Plastique (Normandy), the LTP Process is a combination of technologies borrowed from the cabinet fabrication with wood and metal sheets. Since then it is a proven technology and we manufacture over 200 000 enclosures per year. Toolless / Electronicase has been using this technology for the last 20 years.
All those operations or production steps are carried out in our production plant on site.
- The enclosure is broken down into individual elements.
- Each element is machined out of plastic panels, with cutouts, holes, and vents adapted to the electronic equipment.
- The forming of the plastic parts is done without specific tailor-made tools through mechanical folding and bending (no injection mold).
- All parts are assembled by cold welding through the application of a solvent, which creates an enclosure quality comparable to injection molding.
- The finished enclosure can be equipped with inserts, mounting features, self-adhesive rubber feet, locks, handles, hinges, windows, ...
- The finishing steps are all executed in-house: paint, clear varnish, and digital print.
This unique “no-mold” process is the most performing technology for small and medium production runs. The final quality is close to the injection one.
The entire design and manufacturing process is ISO certified.
