Research & Testing Facility Electronic Enclosures

At A & J Manufacturing Company (A&J), we specialize in the design and manufacture of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) and custom electronic equipment racks and enclosures. The increasing number of test and measurement tasks means that our customers require greater modularity of the enclosures that protect the sensitive electronics that make up high-end test systems.

Since our founding in 1953, we’ve supplied modular electronic enclosures; designed and built to tight tolerances, AS9100 compliant, extremely durable, and optimized for strength-to-weight ratio, all of which are essential to ensuring their effectiveness and reliability. Our racks are carefully engineered to meet all of these requirements and more. And for universities or research centers compiling and analyzing research or testing data, they require a flexible setting. Data is practically currency in today’s environment, and their ability to scale capacity quickly will affect their bottom line.

Electronic Racks for Research & Testing Facilities

In the research/education industry, researchers require powerful HPC systems and racks play a key role in keeping that vital electronic equipment protected, while following specific cabinet standards. That’s why our engineers design and build our racks to be fully adjustable and compatible with all EIA-310 compliant 19″ equipment.

Key features of our racks include:

  • Enclosures have vertical mounting rails that are fully adjustable and compatible with all EIA-310 compliant 19″ equipment
  • High-strength, lightweight aluminum construction
  • Modular structure that requires no welding for assembly/disassembly
  • Multiple modules can be connected together to make scaling up capacity simple and fast
  • High mechanical stability; shock and vibration resistance
  • Multiple airflow management & cooling options
  • Tool-less adjustable rackmount rails
  • Improved EMI shielding

In addition to COTS racks, we can produce custom racks for more complex requirements.

Value-Added Services

Our team is committed to ensuring customers receive the right products for their applications. For example, we help customers design custom solutions that fully meet their specifications and standards by providing design engineering assistance. We can also review existing customer-provided drawings and designs to evaluate and/or verify manufacturability, tolerances, materials, finishes, and costs.

Our racks are easily modifiable. We provide kits and accessories that can be used to accommodate whatever electronic component the customer needs to fit within the rack (e.g., drawers, fans, power panels, shelves, and vents).


Our COTS and custom racks find application in a range of electronic systems across research and higher education industries. Typical uses include:

  • Measurement & testing stations
  • Data centers and server racks
  • Network equipment
  • Science lab equipment

Let’s Talk

Custom modular enclosures give your research and testing facility the best environment to grow in. Modular, flexible, built to any size and fast to deploy: that’s the future!

A & J Manufacturing: Your Research & Testing Facility Rack Experts

Research and testing facilities often require enclosures to be installed in a variety of spaces including large test rooms, smaller labs and other multipurpose areas. In addition to flexibility, they require component reliability and system monitoring capabilities to ensure the security of their sensitive data. Let A&J design a solution that fully incorporates modular enclosures in various dimensions, pre-configured with cable and airflow management components and related accessories.
