PRICES
Every front panel is an individual item. The production price is determined by the individual design. Front Panel Designer gives you full control over costs:
You can display the final price at any time during the design process and understand it with the help of the detailed itemisation. Price examples for front panels can be found under Inspiration.

FPD design service
In order to produce your front panel, we need an FPD file. FPD files are only created in Front Panel Designer and already contain the data needed for production.
If you are unable to use Front Panel Designer, we can provide an FPD design service for you. Simply send us a technical drawing of your front panel to service@schaeffer-ag.de and leave the rest to us. Ideally, please send us your data in DXF or STEP format. A dimensioned drawing is also preferable.
Cost for this service:
€16.25 net/€19.34 gross per quarter of an hour or part thereof

YOUR LOGO ENGRAVED
Got a logo and want to have it engraved? Engraving files must be in HPGL format. You simply add these in Front Panel Designer using the HPGL import function. A guide to creating HPGL files can be found here.
If you do not want to create your own HPGL file for your logo, we’ll be happy to do this for you. Send us a vector-based template to service@schaeffer-ag.de. We can also vectorise your pixel graphics if you do not have a vector file of your logo.
Cost for these services:
HPGL design service: €20 net/€23.80 gross
Vectorisation: €80 net/€95.20 gross

EMC SLOTS
Enclosure shielding
In order to improve the electromagnetic compatibility of your housing we can mill slots for the use of EMC spring contacts into the end faces of your front panel.
To order EMC slots, enter your requirements in the ‘Remarks for production’ field in Front Panel Designer, e.g., ‘Make EMC slots in the left and right end face’. Also choose a material with a chromated (passivated) rear side, to achieve the best possible shielding effect.
Cost for this service:
EMC slot set-up (once per order of multiple units of the same front panel): €20.81 net/€24.76 gross
EMC slot milling (per milled slot): €3.30 net/€3.93 gross
