Plastics Sub Assembly Process

China Dispatch: Adventures in Case Manufacturing
By

Once all of the plastic parts are ready, they must be assembled. In the Xpider/Gaming Bomb, the main emphasis centers around the assembly of the bezel (which comes in about 30 pieces), which is no small feat to assemble. Chenbro uses a hot melt process to hold many of the plastic parts in place. This step is the stage where logos or other printing could be silkscreen printed onto the case. Although we saw this process, due to the proprietary design and logo on the cases we can't show you in this article. We can tell you that it was a leading, tier one OEM.

Once the bezel is assembled it is stored for forwarding on to the final assembly process when needed.

The plastics sub assembly process line starts here. The Xpider/Gaming Bomb plastic sub assembly centers around the assembly of the front bezel, as we see here. All of the plastics, as well as the switches, bezel parts, filters and grills have to be brought together to create the final bezel product. Although the Xpider/Gaming Bomb bezel does not require it, this is also where any silk screening of logos onto the bezel could take place as well.

The hot melting process is used to secure and join the plastic together. As the name implies, heat is used to melt and secure the parts into place.

The bezels are now snapped into place as the bezel continues down the plastics sub assembly process line.

    Please visit more factories before you say "why others don't think that an inexpensive detail such as this is important."
