ACE CUSTOM SPEC PANEL FABRICATION AND ENGRAVING FACILITIES

Custom Panel Systems made and delivered on time. Every time.

Made-to-order custom panels are precision cut and labeled to your exact specifications from a variety of materials on precision CNC rotary machines or our new modern laser system. Computer Assisted Drafting (CAD) systems feed data to these machines that then define your panel as it is cut, accurately. This process allows ACE to gang together material production for a single set-up, resulting in a very fast turn around time, while keeping your cost low.

ACE can design custom A/V panels, provide a comprehensive CAD layout for your approval, then cut, finish, label, and ship in record breaking time.

Supporting your installation requirements for wall panels, rack panels, and all brands of floor box panels, ACE can offer many material choices including:


LASER CUT AND PRODUCED
Custom Service Guaranteed

Completely custom laser-cut panels that are strong, stiff, show little fatigue over their lifetime, have low moisture sensitivity and have good electrical properties. Not only are these panels eco-friendly, but they can also be:
1. Drawn and Approved
2. Cut and Labeled
3. Populated and Shipped
ALL IN ONE DAY!

ConnectQuick ConnectQuick - thermoplastic resin that is chemically produced to combine the strength of metal and the resilience of plastic to give finished panels excellent dimensional stability, high mechanical strength, and long term fatigue endurance. This material is widely used in the automotive and electronics industries because of its strength and isolation properties. Finished panels are sturdy (3/32" or 3/16" thick), opaque black and have a brushed appearance.
Acrylic Panel Acrylic - offered in several thicknesses, this material produces a perfectly polished finish ideal for professional plates and panels.
Subsurface Panel Subsurface Plastic - perfect for indoor or outdoor use, this material allows for multiple-depth cutting and etching, producing a 3D panel with layers of color
Adhesive Plastic Adhesive Plastic - this flexible and durable material has a peel-and-stick adhesive backing and can be used to update labeling on existing panels of all types.

CNC ROTARY-CUT AND PRODUCED
Custom Service Guaranteed

Custom panels are rotary-cut from metal materials and then prepared for finishing after you have approved our panel drawing and quote. Design/Integrators can choose to have panels chemically anodized or electrostatically powder coated to protect the metal from abrasion before the labeling process. Add identification characters, instructions, and company logos to custom panels with laser-etched or rotary-engraved options. Many times these custom A/V panels can ship sooner than the 10 day lead time quoted at receipt of order.

Aluminum Panel Aluminum - T6 6061, high strength alloy available in two thicknesses, 1/8" and 1/16" to support custom panels up to 48" x 48" dimensionally. Custom panels are machined and not punched, maintaining a flat undistorted finished product. This material is used in aircraft fabrication because of its tensile strength and mechanical properties. Finished panels show bright aluminum where characters have been cut into the panels finish.

LOADING AND LABELING SPECIFICATION

Labeling panels and populating them with connectors before the panels arrive on your job site will save you time and money, freeing your installation crew to install, not assemble.

Custom A/V Panels:
Specify the required connector position labels and graphics by forwarding your architectural diagram to the ACE Custom Desk, or let our designers provide you a CAD layout. With both rotary engraving and laser etching options, ACE can accomplish any design detail.

CUSTOM PANEL MATERIALS AND SPECIFICATIONS

Made to order custom panels may be created from a diverse group of materials, including NEW ConnectQuick thermoplastic resin. Custom Panels are available in sizes up to 48" x 36" with multi-panel ganged machined operations providing scaled economies and the lowest panel cost. ACE can provide a complete professional finished panel resource for all your custom panel design and installation needs. Call the ACE Custom Order Desk at 661-295-5760 for more detailed panel information and specifications or email custom@acebackstage.com.

Aluminum Alloy:
Aluminum alloy sheet stock can be machined for almost any panel requirement. This alloy (6061-T6) is very ridged and flat and stocked in 1/16" and 1/8" thicknesses . Smaller panels are typically made from 1/16" aluminum. Larger panels (e.g. rack panels) are cut from 1/8" aluminum. Other thicknesses are available on a custom order basis. Currently the CONNECTRIX system pocket panels, rack panels, and wall panels are fabricated from this tough aluminum alloy.

Acrylic:
Acrylic sheet stock is an excellent panel material. At 3/16" thick it is very flat and ridged, ideal for mounting large multi-pin connectors that require a heavy push/pull for engagement. It provides electrical isolation for connectors with grounded shells typical of many audio and video applications. This acrylic has a glossy black finish that is easily labeled for an upscale, hi-tech appearance. Alternately, use the acrylic panel as a sub-panel and engrave a plastic laminate overlay panel for nomenclature call outs.

ConnectQuick:
Thermoplastic resin is available in 1/16", 3/32", 1/8" thicknesses. Laser etching or rotary engraving this material produces an opaque marking that needs colored backfill to show bright on the surface. Reclaimed and recycled, plastic is a good choice when LEED certification desired. ConnectQuick is strong and stiff, shows little fatigue over its lifetime, and has good electrical properties that provide an isolation barrier for A/V connections. Many colors and combinations of front and reverse engravable stock are available on request. Other uses include signs, operating instructions, block diagrams etc. for a permanent professional presentation on any project.
