Enclosure Modifications Made Easy


Manufacturing and designing industrial control systems has been the focus of Mission Controls Company for the last 40 years. They do work for a variety of industries, from Food Processing to Semiconductor, Biotech, Agriculture, Pharmaceutical, Water/Wastewater and Utility industries.

Previously performing enclosure modifications in-house, Mission Controls has been very successful, but some projects demand more. Customers requiring several control panels in a short amount of time, means that Mission Controls has to go through the long, labor-intensive process of making all the cuts themselves before installing control components.

Instead of tying up manpower on physically modifying a large number of enclosures, Mission Controls partnered with their supplier Buckles-Smith Electric.

Buckles-Smith has been supplying Mission Controls with enclosures for years. Just recently, Buckles-Smith acquired an enclosure machining tool called the Enclosure Modification Center (ModCenter).

Buckles-Smith and Mission Controls worked together for a solution for enclosure modifications.

Time-savings and increased flexibility, the ModCenter automates the process of drilling, tapping, and milling enclosures– all while providing quality work.

Because of the long-standing relationship between Mission Controls and Buckles-Smith, the transition from just ordering enclosures to having them modified was easy.

“Buckles-Smith was easy to work with,” said Jason Wells, Mission Controls Lead Engineer. “They are in-tune with what we want. We order the parts through them, they do the modifications and we get the project to our customer on time.”

Just Made Sense


Buckles-Smith’s dedicated ModCenter team has been crucial in creating a smooth transition.

“Their team is familiar with controls and automation; not just push buttons, but with HMIs and PLCs. They are able to take our drawings and translate them into an actual modification.” According to Jason Wells, “Buckles-Smith allows us to focus on the design of the control systems and we let Buckles-Smith handle the material.”

“When we need a lot of enclosures modified and we need them done quickly, Buckles-Smith has been fast and reliable to work with.”

Enclosure Modifications: Man vs Machine

Buckles-Smith was easy to work with; they are in-tune with what we want. They do the modifications and we get the project to the customer on time.
