Services

We offer many options that will allow you to customize your front panels to ideally suit your needs. Add text and logos, choose your colors, create a custom housing and more.

 

Engraving of Text and Graphics

Engraving is a fast way to apply any graphics or your logo to a front panel. Because our machines can engrave during machining, it is also very affordable. Engraving can be in-filled with a color of your choice, providing a look similar to silk screening. Breaking the surface, engraving recesses the lines, making your graphics very resistant and protected. The quality of our engraving tools allows us to maintain a clean look with crisp and well-defined edges. Try it out.

Anodizing After Milling

Most customers ask us to create their front panels using anodized aluminum. However, the milling process can expose edges and cutouts. So, Front Panel Pros now offers anodizing after milling. Edges and cutouts will be anodized for a higher quality finish. The maximum dimensions for this service are 560mm x 610mm (22″ x 24″).

Silk Screening

Some customers prefer to have us silkscreen text and/or logos on their front panels. While not as durable as engraving, silk screening can be a cost-effective alternative, especially for larger quantities.

We use standard, full-color printing (4-color process) so an enormous range of colors is available to you with this approach.
