We like to talk to our customers before they have started their design. The optimum housing solution for their application will dictate the size and shape of the circuit board. Even the first hand-soldered circuit board should be designed with a few simple layout rules in mind.
We tailor bespoke solutions for our design customers. These can be full-custom designs of plastic mouldings or machined-from-solid billet, but will normally be semi-custom designs based on existing extrusions that we hold in stock.
We generate machine code from the solid models which allows us to manufacture prototypes that directly reflect the models. Existing customers usually send us the circuit boards and parts, or visit us with them and then we make up a prototype within an agreed time frame – usually one or two weeks.
We hold pre-anodized lengths of extrusion and sheet metal. This allows us to reduce manufacturing time and accelerate prototyping. We have spent 30 years ensuring the highest quality possible, particularly for extrusions, sheet metal and anodizing.

I thought I would demonstrate the usefulness of the Lincoln Binns Uniobox 66 enclosure for Raspberry Pi projects by undertaking one myself. I decided to make a one-off music system product we have called Pi-Player. We took it to the 2016 Electronics Design Show at Ricoh Arena in Coventry. Pi-Player comprises a Raspberry Pi 2[…]
Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Enclosure Since we last posted about our original Raspberry Pi enclosure back in 2014 we get at least 3 enquiries per week about our enclosure. It has proven to be a huge success for businesses who use the Raspberry Pi in hundreds of different applications ranging from GPS solutions, Audio[…]
Acrylic End Plates With more and more electronics using wireless communication between devices, the need for a reliable a connection is even more evident. There is nothing worse than having a short range wireless connection. Lincoln Binns can design and manufacture Acrylic End plates for both our E-Case, U-Case 1 & Uniobox range of electronic[…]
Sculpted End Plates We’ve always wondered, what comes first; practicality or design? When we designed our Uniobox enclosures, both practicality and design were in mind. We created a striking aluminium extrusion that is extremely functional with its various internal mounting slots and is also visually appealing. So much so that it would appear to be the extrusion[…]
‘Unexpected’ Extreme Test – Take Two Our good friends at Hocus Products released an image of one of their products, the Axis 1, after a small mishap at 50 mph. The extreme test was not planned! Using our E-Case A aluminium enclosure, this particular Axis 1 was involved in a camera car crash. Hocus report[…]

Engineering for our future – Part 1 The Lincoln Binns sponsored Ardingly Solar Car took part in a parade through Lindfield village High Street on Saturday and was subsequently installed in a stand at the village show. Director John Binns was on hand to polish the solar cells using a high tech micro-fibre cloth (a[…]
Engineering for our future – Part 2 Congratulations to our friends “The Raiders of the Red Planet” at MSoE (Milwaulkee School of Engineering University). They came 19th out of the 45 teams who made it to the NASA robotic mining competition. They, themselves, nearly failed to compete having suffered a breakdown after 14 hours driving[…]
