We have developed a electronic latch that is currently in a plastic case. We have identified that the plastic is weak and I have been asked if we can diecast the outer case. This would increase the stength of the product plus enable us to keep the product built inhouse rather than buying the case from out side.
My question is apart from the obviouse conducting problems are there any more issues I should consider. One issue I can see is the Motor contacts are very close to the plastic casing infact they can sometimes touch it. I can move the motor slightly away from the case but what distance should this be.
If anyone could direct me towards an online paper or just some information on this I would be most greatful.
Thanks in advance
