PortaFab's machine enclosures provide environmental control from noise, temperature, humidity and particulates. Whether you need a cleanroom to house an injection molding machine making medical products or simply want to reduce noise pollution caused by machinery in your plant, our Cleanroom and Modular Wall Systems can be used to achieve the conditions your applications require.
Machine Enclosures - Common Applications
Machine Enclosures can be used to house and protect a vast variety of machinery and processes. Typical uses include:
- Printing Equipment
- Injection Molding Machines
- Medical & Pharmaceutical Manufacturing
- Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM)
- Process Control or Containment
Complete Customization and Control
All of our industrial enclosures can be environmentally controlled to maximize performance by protecting sensitive equipment from harsh plant environments using a wide range of modular options and accessories.
Modular wall systems are available in a number of panel finishes including vinyl, painted steel, aluminum, PVC, or a fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) finish that protects against damage and scratches from pallet jacks and other moving equipment.
Temperature and Noise Control
We offer a wide selection of wall systems to provide acoustical barriers and temperature control while our panelized roof structures further our ability to provide additional insulation and sound control.
We can also accommodate oversized roll-up or bi-parting doors to facilitate the movement of large equipment and materials in and out of the controlled environment.
Extra Tall Walls
For housing large calibration or processing equipment, PortaFab offers a number of extra tall wall systems that can be incorporated into the design of any equipment enclosure.
Case in Point #1
A major manufacturer of down-hole motor equipment for the oil and gas industry turned to one of PortaFab’s distributors for help in relocating an existing CMM enclosure to their new manufacturing headquarters. Our distributor, who originally installed the enclosure, was contacted based on the quality of work they provided during the original installation to ensure the building was accurately controlled and properly specified. The benefits provided:
- Building constructed to withstand tight tolerances for measuring
- Roll-up doors to allow safe passage of large equipment while maintaining environmental control
- Integrated wall system with bridge crane for use in transferring large equipment
Case in Point #2
Toyota Industries, a leading manufacturer of forklifts, is dedicated to maintaining a high level of quality throughout all areas of its assembly process. When the manufacturer implemented plans to have highly sensitive coordinate measuring machine installed within its facility, it needed to house the equipment in an environmentally controlled workspace.
PortaFab proposed a 28' x 30' x 13' high building that is designed to provide both humidity and temperature control. Fire and sound wall panels were chosen due to their Class A non-combustion rating and excellent noise-reducing properties. The benefits provided:
- Humidity and temperature control
- Ability to relocate easily
- Sound insulation
Case in Point #3
The client is a machine tool manufacturer of state-of-the-art punch / laser combination machines. They wanted to provide a deployable, modular laser enclosure as part of the equipment they sell to their clients. PortaFab was selected due to the collaboration with the numerous entities required to provide the turnkey solution for these laser rooms. The benefits include:
- Ease of integration of customer-supplied parts
- Meet required safety standards for laser process
- Flexibility to relocate and expand to address changing business needs
- Deployable units across the world, conformed with International Shipments
