To control motion you must have switches and shitches have to be mounted. As a machine designer, I know locating and mounting switches are one of the last details and as such usually require special dimensions. You don't design a machine around standard switch brackets.

My partners and I are launching a new product line of switch brackets. We have developed a new and unique way to offer our customers a custom bracket, made to a specific dimension, at near standard hardware prices. To accomplish this, we stock a large number of precision laser cut blanks. We have also developed a fabrication system, which uses our own design of custom precision fixtures. To make a typical “L” bracket, using one of our fixtures we shear and brake a blank to make the base portion. We then shear the remaining flat portion to length and finally plug (tig) weld them together in another fixture to the required dimension.
