The Ultimate Electronics Lab at Hacksmith Industries

4/30/2020 | By Kevin Walseth

The “Ultimate Electronics Workstation” at Hacksmith Industries is now complete, well… is any workstation truly complete? With our partner EETech, Digi-Key has been a sponsor of the Hacksmith’s “Make it Real” videos for the past 3 years. When we heard they were building a new facility, we started a conversation with them to build the Ultimate Electronics Workstation.

So, the planning began! What does an ultimate workstation look like? What does it need? First and foremost, a back-lit LED sign. This sign was created using laser cut acrylic in red, white, and black to give it the 3D look and clean edges. LED’s were added to the back of the sign to backlight and make the sign pop!

How about toolboxes, cabinets, and countertops for high-tech projects? With the help of the Hacksmith team, we researched and found the best cabinets for the job (red and black of course). These were ordered and delivered to the Hacksmith facility.

When the Hacksmith team placed the order for these parts, they were shipped from our facility and arrived in Canada two days later. They had the job of unboxing everything and organizing the workstation. Now they can continue "Making Things Real" in their “Ultimate Electronics Workstation”
