Abstract

The covers for a business machine, such as a computer printer, are made by co-injecting a plastic foam core including a metallic fiber filler 10 with a plastic 11 skin that forms the outer surfaces of the casing. The metallic filled inner core is connected to the machine frame for grounding through strap 12 which is connected to the metal core by a metallic plug 13. The cover thus provides a shield to prevent the emission of electromagnetic radiation from the machine.
