Abstract

A gate, in which an array of circuit boards can be mounted, is constructed from hollow aluminum extrusions 10 which are joined by hollow aluminum die-casted joints 12. This construction requires only two tools for fabrication, a die-casting mold and an extrusion apparatus. The extrusion configuration can be changed in accordance with the requirements of the particular application. Extrusion 10 and joint 12 lend themselves to modular construction in which extrusions 10 can be cut to the desired length and fitted with the casted joints 12. The latter can be attached to extrusions 10 by adhesive bonding or other ways which gives a good seal. Extrusions 10 and joints 12 can be adapted for the circulation of a cooling fluid throughout the gate to provide heat removal from components on the boards.
