Quick Quote to Customize an EnclosureStart Over
Welcome to the Polycase online quoting tool! This convenient 90 second tool will allow you to create your own quotes instantly for CNC machining and printing on Polycase enclosures. Pricing is visible throughout the entire process. To save pricing as a firm quote you will be prompted to login or register for an account. A quote number will then be generated and is required to place an order for customized parts. Quotes are saved to your account for 60 days and can be accessed through the "My Account" link after logging in.
All complete stock enclosures found on the website can be customized and quoted online. You can also quote revisions to your existing Polycase customized enclosures.
A revision indicates you have an existing customized part with Polycase (part #'s start J-, JG- or G-) and you need to modify the machining, printing or both. When revising an existing customized enclosure, the previous version is marked obsolete and it can no longer be ordered.
When creating a quote for a revision, please include the Polycase part number, previous custom PO number, or some other reference to help determine the Polycase part number that is being revised. Be sure to include all required machining or printing when quoting, not just the revisions.
A surface is a side of an enclosure that can be machined or printed on. The number of surfaces per enclosure will vary and most enclosures contain both exterior and interior surfaces. Most features are machined and printed on exterior surfaces, however, a few features such as mounting boss removals or screw tower removals must be machined from internal surfaces. Please refer to the drawing presented during the quote process to view surfaces that can be modified.
A feature consists of any size or shape through-holes, countersinks, counter-bores, recesses, bevels, taps, screw tower removals, mounting boss removals, or interior wall thinning. For example, a round hole would be 1 feature. A round hole with countersink would be 2 features (1 feature for the through hole, 1 feature for adding the countersink). Counter-bored holes and threaded holes would also be considered 2 features. Examples of common features are shown below. Non-standard features can be quoted by contacting Polycase Technical Support.
These charges are non-recurring charges to create custom part numbers, engineering drawings, CNC programs, and printing plates for the enclosures. The charges are applied to first time new and revised orders only.

Once a quote has been saved, it cannot be edited. A new quote must be created.
To place an order, email your purchase order to email@example.com. A formal purchase order must be issued since custom parts are non-cancellable and non-returnable.
Lead time is 3 weeks from the date an order is processed.
Polycase can machine virtually any size or shape opening that you may require, however all drawings will be reviewed by Polycase to ensure manufacturability. All square and rectangular cutouts will typically have a minimum corner radius of 0.031" and tolerance on machined features will be +/-0.005". These may increase depending on enclosure selected and feature machined. Ocassionally, certain features may not be able to be machined or will require a non-standard approach which could increase the machining price. This would be determined when the order is placed. Contact Polycase Technical Support if you have specific questions regarding a machined feature.
Polycase offers precision pad printing and silk screening directly onto your enclosure. Vector based artwork file(s) with fonts converted to outlines or curves are required. Vector based artwork include, but are not limited to, Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw, .pdf or .eps files. Raster / Pixel based images such as .jpg, .tif, and .bmp are not acceptable. The recommended minimum line width of text and graphics is 0.010" to guarantee clarity of artwork. Polycase can also create simple text based on a sketch provided. Halftones, gradients, or faded images cannot be printed.
Polycase offers 12 standard ink colors that can be viewed here. Choose from any of our standard ink colors or specify a custom ink color. A one-time $120 custom color fee will be applied for each custom color.
Custom ink colors can be specified by picking a Pantone color number. Polycase cannot color match to RGB colors. Custom inks will be mixed to the specified color. However, due to the translucency of the ink, printing on colored substrates will yield an ink color that shifts toward the color of the substrate. As a result the ink color may look different than shown in a color guide.
