The modem method of electronics enclosure man- ufacture utiliies extruded aluminum sections to form frames to which side and back panels are secured. The tixing of panels to frames can take many forms and most utilize EMI gasketing of some form or other. The aim is to provide electrical continuity on the inside surface of the cabinet to contain E field radiation. If the gasketing is incorrectly fitted the E field radiation will escape, reduc- ing the overall shielding effectiveness ofthe cabinet.
